    5a – What’s Next for Ferguson, MO?

    5a – What’s Next for Ferguson, MO?

    A direct follow-up to the previous episode, this show focuses on the question of "What's Next?" from four unique perspectives: politics, policy, press, and protests. Each perspective invites its own set of questions and Nick speaks to some great minds to help provide answers: St. Louis Alderman ANTONIO FRENCH (politics), PROF. TODD SWANSTROM (policy), HAZEL TRICE EDNEY (press), and Steve Klein (protests). Please note that this episode follows the "Special Programs" clock that NPR uses (which basically means that a station could broadcast it in an hour slot with breaks for news and other stuff). So, this structure provides a different feel than maybe we're used to. Rest assured, the next episode is under way and it's back to the "normal" approach of podcasting.

    5 – Two Days in Ferguson, MO

    5 – Two Days in Ferguson, MO

    Nick visits the town of Ferguson, MO in the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting. All of these interviews occurred on a particularly volatile weekend (August 16-17), when a curfew was placed on the town and the Missouri National Guard was brought in to enforce it. Nick speaks with members of the community, people who have traveled to participate in the protests, and with James Knowles, the mayor of Ferguson. While this falls outside of this podcast's usual format, it does hold true to my desire to reach out to new people and hear their stories. I left Ferguson with a variety of emotions and I hope these recordings help to inform your feelings about all of the issues that the Michael Brown shooting have brought up.

Nice work, Nick! I thoroughly enjoyed the Sound of Music Education and found it edifying. I particularly loved hearing about the Clarksville music programs and their songwriting services. I’m looking forward to the next episode!
