Membership Drive Audio

Special, all-local programming during our membership drives.

 

On KDLL’s special membership drive edition of Kenai Science Friday, what the DNA analysis of ancient salmon bones might be able to tell us about the people who lived on the Kenai Peninsula 2,000 years ago, and how that might relate to fisheries politics today. Paleogenomics meets anthropology with guests professor Alan Boras of Kenai Peninsula College and Dr. Ripan Malhi of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagne.

  

   

In this half hour of Kenai Science Friday, we speak with the physics and math instructor at Kenai Peninsula College, Andy Veh. He also teaches astronomy, and in the past wrote a regular column on the stars for the Redoubt Reporter newspaper.

In the next half hour, it's Women in Science. Last week, Cook InletKeeper held a roundtable discussion with area women about their careers in science and technology. KDLL's Jenny Neyman was there and collected these excerpts of the conversation.

 

The Vietnam War is the subject of Ken Burns' latest epic series on PBS, and on KDLL's fall membership drive version of Peninsula On Point, Jay Barrett talks with Allen Auxier, of Soldotna, about his experiences in the war. Listeners know Allen as the longtime station manager at KDLL, but may not know he spent 11 months carrying an M-60 machine gun and jumping out of helicopters in the jungles of Vietnam in 1971 and '72. He came back staunchly patriotic, but adamantly anti-war.
