In this edition of WYSO Weekend:

 

Numbers show more and more Americans are turning to technology for help staying healthy and losing weight. Mobile step and calorie counters, fitness apps and wearable tech such as Fitbits are more popular than ever. With the season of holiday overindulgence underway, we tested one of the newest fitness trends hitting the Miami Valley. It’s a health club machine that harnesses the power of 3D technology.  

 

Last week on Excursions, WYSO Music director Niki Dakota helped shine the spotlight on two local choruses. Coming up we’ll hear a performance recorded live in our studios by the Central State University Chorus, but first, Niki’s conversation with members of the Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus - President Drew Huggins, and Artistic Director Kathy Clark. They spoke about the DGMC’s upcoming holiday concert and a new project underway that involves LGBTQA youth in the Miami Valley.

Bill Felker has this week's Poor Will's Almanack.
