WYSO Weekend: March 13, 2016

WYSO Weekend

On today’s WYSO Weekend: The first segment in our New series Women’s Voices: from the Dayton Correctional Institution. We’ve got this week’s edition of Culture Couch and Aviation Commentary from Dan Patterson.

  • Up first..... Ohio playing a big part in politics this week. Ohio Governor and presidential candidate, John Kasich, made a campaign stop in Dayton, on Friday - ahead of the State’s winner-take-all primary next Tuesday. Kasich spoke at the former GM factory in Moraine, Ohio – the current sight of the Fuyao glass  manufacturing plant. WYSO’sApril Laissle was there and has provided us with some audio of what Kasich had to say.  
  • GOP Front-runner Donald Trump also stopped in Dayton on Saturday. WYSO’s Lewis Wallace and Hideo Higashibaba were there to talk to attendees and get their reaction to Trumps Speech.  Here’s a few minutes of what the presidential candidate had to tell audiences at the Dayton International Airport.
  • And across the political isle - Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders made a stop in Columbus last week and talked one-on-one with Statehouse Correspondent Andy Chow. We have part of their conversation and other political news.
  • Women’s Voices: From the Dayton Correctional Institution. 
  • Latino Art of the Midwest is a special exhibit presented by the Roesch Library Gallery on University of Dayton’s campus. It features 13 artists, all Latinos living in the midwest. For WYSO’s Culture Couch, Community Voices producer Jonathan Platt went to opening night.  
  • A story on NPR last month got our aviation commentator's attention. Dan Patterson heard that the US Navy has returned to teaching celestial navigation – a method that uses an instrument called a sextant along with the sun and stars to chart a course. The Navy says it's concerned about over-reliance on GPS navigation, which is vulnerable to attack or failure. Dan Patterson is an aviation historian and a pilot too. He's got some thoughts about aerial navigation.
  • WYSO's Bill Felker offers up some thoughtful clarity on the living world around us in Poor Will's Almanack.
