As mentioned by Ros a wee while back on our trips page, we’re working with our partner station out in south-west Florida, WGCU.

This time next week, Ros, Alicia and I will be on our way to Immokalee.  It’s a small town not far from Fort Myers (where WHYS broadcast from the soup kitchen last year, see picture below). Continue reading ‘WHYS in Immokalee, Florida’

Talking points 3 June

Hello all, Priya here. Thank you Brett, Will and everyone for looking after this post so lovingly overnight.

Talking points for 30 April

Good morning, first up I’ll ask you if now is the time to put our debate about race being good or bad for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign on the radio.

Talking points for 9 April

Good morning, Ros has already started a debate asking “Should the Olympic torch-relay be cancelled?” – the torch is in San Francisco and if you’re there will you be protesting – or cheering it past?

Also, Fuchsia has asked if you are worried about rising food prices. It’s been a theme running through a few of our editorial meetings for a while and we may team up with Africa Have Your Say, who are discussing the issue today. So you can join those debates or start new ones here.
