Recharging – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

You can break everything in the world down to the cellular level. Cells create energy. And energy is what runs you, me, and every contraption we’ve built, from cell phones to the world wide web. 

When energy ebbs, things get bad. Have you ever had your cell service go out on your phone? Or, personally, have you felt so worn out during the middle of the afternoon that you don’t know how you’re going to make it to the end of the day? Peter Ricchiuti’s guests on this edition of Out to Lunch are solving both these problems.
