WYSO Weekend: May 22, 2016

WYSO Weekend

In this edition of WYSO Weekend: You’ll learn how Central State University plans to teach coding and entrepreneurial skills to young males of color. And later in the program—a report on political ads and what’s coming our way. See full details below.

  •   Women’s Voices from Dayton Correctional Institution.
  • This week on Dayton Youth Radio we'll hear a story from The David H Ponitiz Career Technolgy Center about a teenager who is adjusting to life in a blended family. It's called Brand New Baby. Project coordinator Basim Blunt begins the story.
  • This week, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown announced his cosponsorship of the Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act – a bill to ban conversion therapy, a practice where health care providers or counselor try to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. We spoke to the senator by phone last week.
  • Like the cicadas -- only a lot noisier -- political ads are about to blanket Ohio and other swing states. For Ohio Public Radio, WKSU’s M.L. Schultze takes a look at what’s likely to be coming in targeting, tone and content in just a few months – and why.

  • Bill Felker with Poor Will's Almanack.
