Caffeine; James Cahill, Mayor of New Brunswick, NJ

Caffeinated energy drinks are the fastest-growing sector of the $93 billion domestic beverage industry, but are some youths hooked? Mark and Francis talk about the boom in energy drinks and the manufacturers of these products. Here's some food for thought: Sobe's "No Fear" energy drink has three times the caffeine of a regular soda. It uses the slogan "meet your new addiction."

The city of New Brunswick is a shinning example of urban renewal. The Guys welcome Mayor James Cahill to the show to talk about the revitalization of The Hub City. Two organizations have been essential in this process: New Brunswick Tomorrow focuses on social programs and issues while The New Brunswick Development Corporation (DEVCO) focuses on construction and development projects. Also essential: the lively restaurant and arts scene that has made New Brunswick a destination for the surrounding communities.
