Episode: 6 - Mike Baum on trash picking, shrinkage and building RVA's largest polar plunge.

In this week’s Views from the Treehouse podcast, we chat with Mike Baum of Keep Virginia Beautiful. Shiver in the River, a winter festival that has become KVB’s signature event, is coming up on Feb. 24th. And we ask Baum the crucial questions: What, besides alcohol, causes normally sane people to plunge into the James in late February? Are Speedos allowed? Has he ever participated? And what percentage of participants say something about shrinkage? This is a fun one, folks!
