WXDU News, Sports, and Information Tonight (8/2) 6:00-8:00

The Endless Frontier, WXDU's science news show, is up first at 6:00 tonight. This week's program explores some of the latest aging and longevity research.

Next at 6:30, we'll join With Good Reason for an episode that shares the stories of the families who were evicted from their homes during the building of Shenandoah National Park. Also in this program, host Sarah McConnell learns more about the controversies surrounding Revolutionary War pensions, how baby boomers are impacting the funeral industry, one documentarian's efforts to challenge ageist stereotypes and the effects of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) on older adults and their families.

WXDU Sports is next on the schedule at 7:30. Tonight, Martin Kang has a look at Duke's upcoming 2015-2016 season, including swimming and diving and track and field schedules, volleyball news and coaching staff changes for the women's soccer and softball teams. He'll also play the conclusion to Lauren Schiller's interview with Brandi Chastain from the Inflection Point episode he began during the last sports show.
