Dayton Youth Radio allows teens to talk about the issues they care about. We hear them trying to figure out what life is all about. In 2016, DeAnte McGlown was a junior at the Dayton Early College Academy. He wrote and recorded an essay called "Breaking the Silence" while he was at school. Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm 17 years old and…
 
When President Richard M. Nixon resigned from office he did so after millions of Americans had watched the Watergate hearings being broadcast from our US Congress on television.

In a recent podcast post I mentioned how much I enjoy interviewing authors who have just published their first books. Sometimes those writers will go on to have successful careers.

The poet Herb Martin has made a number of appearances on the show over the years. It is always such a treat to be able to feature him as a guest.

There are so many lovely poems in this collection and Herb shar…

One of my favorite aspects about the process of talking to authors about their work are those times when I have opportunities to interview writers who have just published their first books. Some of these authors have gone on to become very well known. When that happens I like to recall what it was like to talk to them when they were still unknown, …

Twenty years ago I had the pleasure to meet Elizabeth Marshall Thomas.

I write this from Sarasota, Florida: Complete semi-tropical habitat, no sign of winter. Looking back over today’s daybook from home in Ohio, I see how all the notes reach south, look forward.

I'm African-American, and I go to th…
 
Even as the cold breaks the Groundhog Day thaw, many signs appear of the broader scope of the season, reminders of what to watch for and what to do. When the first fly gets in your house on a warm Late Winter day, then opossums and skunks wander the back roads at night. When the red tips of peonies push out just a little from the ground, then blue …
 
During the mid 1960's if you turned on your television set to watch national news programs you really only had three options; CBS, NBC, or ABC. Later in the decade PBS was created and then you had four network choices but prior to the arrival of cable TV at the end of that decade those were your only TV channels for obtaining news of the world. The…
