More bicycle lanes, fewer cars, light rail, more pedestrian paths, one bridge, two bridge, three bridge, four. Trying to craft the right transportation plan for the Kentuckiana region is no easy task. Join us in the performance studio on Thursday for a discussion on Kentuckiana’s regional transportation needs, wants and visions. Listen to the Show
You might think of your baby’s birth as the happiest moment of your life. But childbirth can also be scary, especially for first-time or high-risk parents. Having a plan and feeling like you have some control over what will happen to you often lessens the anxiety associated with labor and delivery. Birth plans run the gamut from pre-scheduled C-sections under general anesthesia to medication-free water births at home. You might be assisted by doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, midwives, doulas, your partner, or your whole extended family. Listen to the Show
It seems like so many national treasures and pieces of our history are concentrated in big metropolitan museums – where many of us will never get the chance to see them. Museum on Main Street, a partnership between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils, is trying to remedy that by bringing exhibits to rural museums throughout the country. They include displays about roots music, culinary heritage, how our ancestors came to America, and even the history and significance of fences. Listen to the Show
Has a movie changed your life?
Now that’s a big question. Or maybe not a big question, but a big responsibility for a movie. Tuesday on State of Affairs, our show is about movies that have changed your life. It wasn’t our idea (I’ll confess), but part of this year’s IdeaFestival (all movie submissions can be found here). Well here at WFPL we’ve been discussing the topic on and off for about a week. I don’t know what it says about news people, but so far no one has admitted to a movie that has changed their life.
