WYSO Weekend: November 20, 2022

Reshaping, changing, or.... just making a difference. Those are the themes running through our stories in this week's WYSO Weekend:

  • Maurice Sendak and the Art of Stealing: Mention Maurice Sendak, and people think of “Where the Wild Things Are.” Max and his sailboat and those giant creatures. A new exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art aims to show that Maurice Sendak was much more than a beloved children’s book author. He is a great American artist of the twentieth century. David Seitz talked with two people who knew Sendak well, and they told him about his creative process.
  • Hattie Moseley Memorial mural: Those who gathered October 11 to celebrate a 40-foot mural of Springfield Civil Rights activist Hattie Moseley were like the mural itself: fresh, vibrant, of many colors and bathed in sunlight. WYSO Clark County Reporter Tom Stafford was there.
  • Dayton Youth Radio: Today on Dayton Youth Radio we'll learn about the changing relationship teenagers have with something very important in their lives. Project Manager Basim Blunt introduces the story.
  • INTEL Chip Manufacturing Training: A once in a lifetime opportunity is how the Chair of Wright State University's Intel Initiative describes the grants given to the school to train people to work at the $20-billion plant in Central Ohio. WYSO's Mike Frazier spoke with Wright State professor and Intel Initiative Chair Subash Nee Ganapathy about what the grants will be used for.
  • Reshaping the Corn Belt II: Some farmers in Ohio are shifting their practices and becoming part of the climate change solution. They do that through regenerative agriculture that seeks to restore and build on farming’s pre-industrial practices. Small farmers are leading this change. This is the second installment of Reshaping the Corn Belt: How farming is turning to the past to grow its future. WYSO’s Alejandro Figueroa reports.
  • Poor Will’s Almanack round's out today's program.
