Eastern Standard Oct. 26, 2023
With bourbon sales booming there is pressure on a key resource: the white oak. Eastern Standard’s Crystal Jones reports. Gerald Smith, host of our series on racial justice and equality, and UK History and African Studies professor George Wright discuss the response of Kentucky’s flagship university to the Supreme Court decision ending race-conscious admission programs at colleges and universities. Contestants are preparing for a chance to perform on stage at the Metropolitan Opera. Local musicians are getting ready to pay tribute to songwriting great Paul Simon. And, we present “Line of Duty,” our latest ten-minute radio play written, directed, and performed by local talent.
