Eastern Standard March 2nd, 2023


Eastern Standard for March 2nd, 2023.
On this week’s edition:

Listening in as members of the Kentucky Student Voice Team have a discussion about the ways their races and ethnicities affect their learning experiences.

Model on the EKU campus in Richmond is the state’s last remaining laboratory school where teachers learn how to teach real kids in real classrooms. Model Superintendent & Dean of K-12 Programs John Williamson is guest of Gill Hunter for our series on education in Kentucky.

An update on the cost of replacing homes lost and repairing those severely damaged in the flash flood of July ’22.

From the website of Tom Eblen’s guest in our series on Kentucky writers: “A bicultural child of a Malay mother and an Indian father, Amelia Zachry was different from the get-go, never quite fitting in. In this raw, inspiring memoir, she chronicles the long, winding journey that brought her from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Kentucky, USA—the place she and her family now call home.”

And Duane Lundy welcomes to “Depth of Field” songwriter and music journalist Jeff Slate who, since 2013, has been contributing articles about music and culture to Esquire and liner notes for the 50th anniversary reissue of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the STAX Records 60th anniversary reissue series and albums by Small Faces and Shawn Colvin.

Tom Martin is the host of Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine of interviews and stories about interesting people, places, and things happening in the Commonwealth.
