Mythology and Fairy Tales, Good and Evil

We grow up hearing nursery rhymes and fairy tales that deal with good and evil. All of us fondly remember the cartoons of our youth and the stories we grew up with. We talk to Soman Chainani about authoring a new entry into the catalogue of mythology and his attempt to course-correct the lessons more modern stories have been teaching our children.

15-40 Segment 2: Helping Non-Traditional Students Succeed

A college education is usually a ticket to a better job, better health and overall life satisfaction – that is if you can get one. Non-traditional students — those who are older, who work fulltime or who have families – can have a tough time just figuring out how to apply to college, talk to a professor or find scholarships or financial aid. Our guest discusses the hurdles non-traditional students have to clear and what schools and communities can do to make their transition into higher education easier.

Host: Marty Peterson. Guest: Mike Rose, faculty member at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, and author of the book Back to School: Why everyone deserves a second chance at education.
