Thu, 11 Jan 2018 22:41:12 +0000

On this special edition of Global Journalist, we take a step back from international news to hear from Leonard Pitts Jr., a Pulitzer-winning syndicated columnist for the Miami Herald. Pitts is well-known liberal critiques of the Trump administration as well as his columns covering race, gay rights, religion and other cultural issues. His column on Sept. 12, 2001 called “We’ll Go Forward From This Moment,” is particularly well-known for directly addressing the perpetrators of the Sept. 11 attacks. In addition to the Pulitzer, Pitts has won numerous journalism awards from groups like the National Association of Black Journalists and the Society for Professional Journalists - and most recently a 2017 honor medal from the Missouri School of Journalism.

Missouri Offenders Help Their Peers Come to Terms with Death

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 16:15:50 +0000

Offenders in some Missouri prisons are breaking down walls — emotional walls. They’re demolishing the barriers they’ve spent years building while inside a prison cell. But it’s only at the end of their sentence, the end of their life, that those walls finally crumble. And they crumble with a fellow inmate by their side. It’s all part of the Missouri Department of Corrections (MODOC) Hospice Program, which started in 2015, where offenders are trained to provide end-of-life care for their peers.

Global Journalist: North Korea Women's Rights

Fri, 05 Jan 2018 02:44:43 +0000

North Korea has one of the worst human rights record in the world, but for women the situation is particularly acute. Sexual harassment and sexual assault are rarely punished, and many women who escape to neighboring China end up being trafficked into prostitution or sold as brides to Chinese men. Yet despite these challenges, North Korean women often have more economic freedoms than men. On this edition of Global Journalist, a look at women's rights in North Korea.

Commentary: America's Clinical Trial

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 14:28:00 +0000

A few years ago in an airport gate area I overheard a man on his Bluetooth talking about his business. When he was free I asked him about it. He said he owned a startup biotech firm that had patented a drug that was in clinical trials. I asked about the drug and he said it was an ointment for joint pain. He said the key ingredient was cocaine.

Global Journalist: Trump's Islam Rhetoric Tested NPR reporter Khalid

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 17:24:04 +0000

Those who listened to NPR's coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign regularly heard the dispatches from political reporter Asma Khalid. During the race, Khalid distinguished herself for her ability to blend voter interviews with the use of data to illustrate Americans shifting political views. But as a Muslim woman who wears the hijab, or Islamic headscarf, the Indiana native was also tested by then-candidate Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric, and was mocked on Twitter as a "terrorist," "raghead," and "jihadi." On occasion, the reporting climate was so volatile Khalid says she felt the need to remove her head covering. On this special edition of Global Journalist, Khalid, now with Boston public radio station WBUR and a 2017 recipient of the Missouri School of Journalism's highest award, opens up about her experiences with guest host Joshua Kranzberg.

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 16:13:54 +0000

Two years ago, graduate students at the University of Missouri found out in an email that their health insurance would be cut. Students began protesting around the issue, eventually creating a group called the Coalition of Graduate Workers. Sarah Senff was a member of that coalition to improve working conditions for graduate students. KBIA’s Elena Rivera spoke with Senff about the organizing in 2015 and what has changed in the past two years for graduate students at MU.

Commentary: Exploring an Alternate Political History

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 15:58:38 +0000

A year ago last week Donald Trump was officially chosen president by the Electoral College. Had 77 thousand voters in three states – Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania – voted for Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump, Ms. Clinton would have not only won the popular vote by three million, she would also have narrowly won the Electoral Vote. What would be different now had she been inaugurated on January 20 of this year, but everything else in D.C. stayed the same, that is, a Republican House and Senate? You might be thinking this will be the shortest commentary ever, since the obvious answer is: Everything. Actually, not everything. Clearly, the difference list would be longer. Let’s start with domestic issues: · The Cabinet would look different – not mostly retired generals and rich white men. · Obamacare reform proposals would be to lower the age for Medicare eligibility and to lower drug prices, not repeal-and-replace. · A $15 federal minimum wage, serious banking reform, and

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 23:00:00 +0000

Off the Clock – Meet Alice Wells, Missouri Contemporary Ballet’s Newest Member Columbia’s Missouri Contemporary Ballet celebrated its 12th season last month with its original production Eclipse in Movement. This week, I talked with its newest member, Alice Wells, about the joys and challenges of working as a professional dancer for a small company. She’s 21-years-old and moved away from home at the young age of 14 to start training as a professional. Erin McKinstry: “Could you start by telling me how you got started and interested in dance?” Alice Wells: “Yeah, so I actually can't remember my time when I was not interested. When I was three years old, I went up to my mom, and I was like, ‘Mom I'm 3 years old now. I'm ready to take ballet.’ And she was like, ‘Oh, okay.’ So yeah, I never stopped.” EM: “I grew up dancing. When I was a little girl, I thought I wanted to be a ballerina for the New York City Ballet like every other little girl. But at some point when I was a teenager, I went
