2014 is an election year, and as in any campaign period, Americans are talking a lot about the issues. Tonight on WXDU news, we look at two important election issues: gun control and poverty.
First at 6:00, we join BackStory with the American History Guys in a rebroadcast of "Straight Shot: Guns in America," an episode that first aired after the December 2012 shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. The guys explore the history of gun ownership in America and the meaning of the Second Amendment. For more information on this and other episodes, visit backstoryradio.org.
Tonight on WXDU News, we will explore freedom and remembrance as Americans prepare to celebrate the 4th of July on Friday.
First at 6:00, in an episode called "The Right to Vote," Humankind discusses one of America's most central freedoms--the right to vote--and the history of certain groups being denied that right. This episode examines the disenfranchisement of women and African Americans into the 20th Century, the impact of voter identification laws, and the laws that prevent convicted felons from voting after their release from prison.
Tune in to WXDU tonight from 6:00-8:00. Tonight we'll learn about the humanities in STEM education, Boy Scout policies on homosexuality, and the growing problem of noise pollution.
First at 6:00, With Good Reason talks about the role of the humanities in STEM education, and later, takes a look at a modern invention you probably don't think much about: the zipper.
Next at 7:00, OutCasting examines the Boy Scouts of America's May 2013 decision to lift its ban on gay youth members, the history of the ban, and its impact on members.
And after that, Making Contact explores noise pollution, its causes, and its effect on wildlife and human health.
Hey friends! My name is Shark. My show is every other Thursday night from 10 pm to 12 am. I like to play mostly things that are loud and fast. I also like to play things I've never heard before. In addition to DJing, I'm the events director for WXDU which means I do things like help plan awesome events and try to write professional-sounding e-mails. It's a ton of fun!
No, we don't have a custom WXDU iPhone app. We've found something BETTER: an app that will let you listen to any streaming radio station: TuneIn Radio, powered by TuneIn.com. It allows you to record, pause & rewind streams, view cover art & artist info. And it's available for iPhone, Android, Palm and Blackberry!
