Radio Universitaria vs Radio Universitaria

@ VOL 42 ON JUN 25, 2015

O como no apagar el fuego con gasolina. Los medios sociales necesitan generarse una identidad, a veces adolescente, a veces trasnochada, y en casos como el de Ibero 90.9 es esquizofrénico. Una estación de radio que no sabe si es popular o no, que no conoce a sus radioescuchas, que no pela los ratings y que habla de lo que quiere, vive permanentemente en Mercurio Retrógrado.

"On this southern side [of the mountain ridge] it drops down about 7000ft (2,133m) almost dead vertical into the abyss."

In "Summit 2 Sea: The Expedition" from PechaKucha Accident Vol. 4Jesse Shimrock shares his harrowing month long experience of being on the first expedition to summit North America's highest mountain, Alaska's Denali at 20,320ft (6,914m) and then descend all the way to sea level ending on a rafting expedition from river to ocean.

College Radio: Alive and Kickin'

@ VOL 23 ON MAY 11, 2017

Julianna Tullos gives an in-depth look at Knoxville's only terrestrial college radio station, WUTK, and discusses that not all radio is created equal. While working at the University of Tennessee college radio station, WUTK, in college in 2005, Julianna grew to appreciate the eclectic environment of radio, and odd-balls that fill it. Over a decade later, college radio is still just as relevent and important, providing a creative outlet, promoting community awareness, and providing a platform of expression for students and Knoxvillians.

Title: 1968 – The Year that Shattered Akron

@ VOL 10 ON FEB 09, 2018

Akron has been having the conversation on race since 1851. Few young people are aware that following the assassination of Martin Luther King in 1968, Akron experienced the violence that infected so many American cities – disillusioned young black men rioting, attacking the businesses of white merchants, confronting police. In Akron, a thousand National Guard troops quelled the disturbances after 6 nights of rioting. Black leaders came together to respond. A commission was formed to assess the reasons for the violence. Dave Lieberth offers a thorough overview of the mayhem and discrimination in Akron in 1968.
