KBOG will spotlight local & national issues with Latin Waves and the once-monthly Peace Talks Radio on Friday mornings.
Hosted by Sylvia Richardson, Latin Waves covers local/national and international issues salient to the vast majority of the population. Our stories make the critical political connections that enable a deeper understanding in our audiences. We bring our listeners in-depth coverage of issues with a focus on the historical context, the socio and economic impact to our communities, and most importantly what are the alternatives.
Our goal is to engage citizens in order to promote agency as we learn what other communities sometimes with scarce resources have been able to accomplish. In short, how can we move society forward in a healthy way, that’s inclusive, equitable and sustainable.
BE PART OF THE SOLUTION!
In a time when news of war and conflict and political divisiveness seem to fill our media, the Peace Talks Radio series tries to take back some media real estate for talk about making peace in our daily lives as well as to provide information on topics that relate to a more peaceful world – locally, nationally and globally.
Suzanne Kryder, Peace Talks host says: “We’re operating on the theory that any kind of violence, even on a global scale or a large nation-to-nation scale, really starts within an individual’s heart. It really starts with individuals not getting their needs met. We look at issues like creating justice for people but we also want to take it down to just an individual level of how people make peace within themselves, or between two people, in small groups, in neighborhoods, and families. We also look at communities where people tend to have conflict, like in the workplace or at school. We really try to address the day to day issues of how people can prevent violence.”
