Antioch College celebrated the news this weekend that the school is on the fast track to accreditation. The college was closed in 2008 by the board of trustees of Antioch University, and it reopened three years ago as a separate entity, driven (and funded) primarily by alumni who couldn’t stand to see the 162-year-old institution disappear.

There are some things you have to look away from if you are going to make it through the day and stay sane. The human population explosion and the extinction crisis among other species is such a topic for me, although I have not stopped reading about it. I recently finished Stephen Meyer’s The End of the Wild and Elizabeth Kolbert’s The Sixth Extinction. But I am not ready to write about it.

Public broadcasting stations like WYSO have large libraries of stories that aired years ago, but often that audio can't be accessed because the archives are on tape, a format most stations aren't using regularly. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in cooperation with WGBH Boston and the Library of Congress, decided that it was time to bridge that technological gap.

Zeb Reichert spoke with Karen Cariani of WGBH and Neenah Ellis of WYSO to learn more about this national undertaking known as the American Archive project

101 years ago this week, it rained in Dayton. And rained some more. And it kept on raining. It was the Great Dayton Flood. Today though, because of a man named Arthur E. Morgan, communities from Piqua to Hamilton have little to fear from the rising floodwaters of the Great Miami River.

The controversy began in 1960 at the Gegner Barber Shop located in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The owner, Lewis Gegner, claimed “I don’t know how to cut their (Negro’s) hair” and refused to provide service to African Americans.

By 1960, the Antioch Committee for Racial Equality (ACRE) and the Antioch Chapter of the NAACP were successful in desegregating other businesses in the Village of Yellow Springs. But Gegner refused even after being fined for violating the local anti-discrimination ordinance.

The Miller Fellowship program has been a part of the Antioch College cooperative education system since the reopening, but many people, including students on campus aren't quite sure what it is. Zeb Reichert sat down and talked with some of the students in the program and shed some light on just what exactly the whole thing is all about.

Antioch College recently hired some new faculty members that began teaching this Fall.  Among them was Gabrielle Civil, associate professor of performance. This quarter Antioch Word Producer Kijin Higashibaba is taking one of her classes called Storytelling. This class studies the different methods and traditions of storytelling now and throughout history. What you’ll hear this month are three of Higashibaba’s favorite stories she heard from her classmates. Coincidentally all of them were told by women.
