But he also acknowledged there’s more work to be done.

As we approach the halfway point of the 2019-2020 college basketball season, the output from Syracuse basketball leaves much to be desired. Sitting at 8-7, with a dismal 1-3 Atlantic Coast record, with the most difficult part of their schedule just ahead, Syracuse does not have much to look forward to either. On Saturday at 4:00, the Orange will take on the No. 18 Virginia Cavaliers (11-3, 3-1) in Charlottesville in a rematch of the 2019-20 season opener.

With seven games in the books, Syracuse basketball is still searching for their identity. Since falling to defending champion Virginia in the season opener, Syracuse (4-3, 0-1) have experienced a rejuvenating change at point guard, a 97-point outburst, and most recently, consecutive losses that have sent this team back to the drawing board. 

The Central New York community has a lot offer it's residents, but what about the night life? There's a new late night spot in Syracuse and they're hoping to add a little spice to downtown in a unique atmosphere. 

This week on The 315 Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss chat with Scott Friedberg, Managing Partner of Gilded Club about what his modern style speakeasy can offer residents looking for something new when heading downtown.


There's been a trend growing if you pay attention to lifestyle and culture around the Syracuse area. Vegan items in restaurants and the availability of vegan products in grocery store has been steadily on the rise. To gain a better understanding of the movement that goes far beyond simply a diet, Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss sat down with Jim Thompson and Theresa Stowell of Vegan CNY.

They discuss what Vegan CNY hopes to offer the Syracuse community, what inspired them to pursue this lifestyle and then they taste some authenic vegan food items.

As the 2019 College Football season reaches its halfway point, the Syracuse Orange (3-3, 0-2), have many questions left to answer.

Which Tommy DeVito can we count on going forward, the healthy one who racked up nearly 400 total yards and five touchdowns against Western Michigan, or the injury-prone one who has a 12:5 touchdown to interception ratio and two costly red zone picks? 

In the Syracuse area most of us could probably name a place or two to grab a good cup of coffee or a quick bite to eat. But what about locating a good shop for tattoos and body art?

On this episdoe of The 315, Joe Lee and Kevin Kloss are joined by three local tattoo artists, Nik Moore from Scarab Body Arts, Jamie Santos of Three of Swords Tattoo, and  Jemola Addley from Resurrected Tattoo. They chat about what's unique about their shops, how socially acceptable are tattoos becoming and how does one get started in the business. That and more on this special 'ink' edition of The 315.

  Refugee resettlement programs have to cover a lot, from teaching English to job training to housing assistance. But one aspect of well being is often overlooked: mental health.

Two growing populations in Central New York, new Americans and the elderly, are also typically undercounted in the census. The amount of federal dollars the area will receive depends on an accurate count of these populations.
