EOT143 Zana Africa 4/8/14

Eye on the Triangle is WKNC’s weekly public affairs programming, with news, interviews, opinion, weather, sports, arts, music, events, and issues that matter to NCSU, Raleigh, and the Triangle.  This week on EOT:

Women and girls in several places in Africa struggle to meet their hygienic needs on a regular basis.  We’ve touched on this problem in previous episodes of Eye on the Triangle, but it’s definitely a problem worth revisiting. Nick had the chance to speak with some people involved in a project that is making strides.

This week included a very special edition of Poetry Corner in which Selma read some work submitted by a listener who is a prisoner at Central Prison.  The pieces touch on his experiences with poverty, and they’re definitely worth a listen.

Here at NC State there are majors of all kinds for all types of people.  Our newest contributor, Mirtha, had the chance to speak with a student who has set up quite a fascinating combination of studies for himself.  Mirtha has the scoop.

Chief Terrence Parks is an aviation ordnanceman in the US Navy.  If you’re confused about what that means, stick around to hear what our contributor Michaela brought us this week.

Listen to all this, plus national and international news from Andrew and Sydney, meteorologist Katie Costa’s forecast, and a community calendar.

Nick Savage and Andrew Eichen bring you another edition of “Eye on the Triangle,” live each Tuesday at 7 p.m. on WKNC 88.1 FM and and available as a downloadable podcast.

Listen to episode 143.
