Assignment: Radio - October 18, 2015

Oct 18, 2015

This is the semester's first episode of Assignment: Radio, KGOU's student-produced public affairs program focusing on issues and events on the University of Oklahoma campus.

This week the Assignment Radio reporters talk to three Oklahoma women showing strength in unique ways.

First, Patrick Smith looks into the work of Parents Helping Parents, a local support group for people with children facing challenges. He talks to a woman who was helped by her involvement in the group.

Then, Sarah Hurd speaks to a Native American activist about the University of Oklahoma's use of the word Sooner and the negative connotation it has for some OU students.

And Courtney Kearby tells the story of a woman who supports her family through her stand at the Norman Farmer's market.
