Shakespeare’s Richard II explores the changing nature of kingship in England, and contrasts the poetic but ineffectual Richard with the Machiavellian Bolingbroke, who deposes him to become Henry IV.  Join Solomon and Mary for some beautiful Shakespearian poetry about the downfall of a king.


Mary Harper and Solomon Everta of the Northcoast Book Discussion Group discuss a Chinese classic, Monkey’s Journey to the West - demons, dragons, Buddha, fantastic superpowers, and a band of very flawed but likable characters making a truly heroic journey.

In the wee hours of the morning on April 15, 2017, Humboldt State University student David Josiah Lawson was murdered at an off-campus party. Hours later Courtney Wagner, a Sacramento State University student, received a call from her friend, another HSU student, who told her about the murder. After searching her local news outlets, to no avail, Courtney decided to cover the story herself for a senior project.

Nearly a year later, with the case still unsolved, Courtney Wagner  spoke with KHSU's Lorna Bryant to discuss her interest in the murder investigation and the documentary project.

Classics Now host Mary Harper discussed the clever and dark tales of Reynard the Fox. Fake news isn’t a new phenomenon.  Reynard the Fox was spreading lies with aplomb back in the “beast epics” of Medieval Europe, and everybody fell for them time and time again.  The sly trickster fox was so ubiquitous that the French changed their word for fox to renard. 


Lorna Bryant hosted Thursday Night Talk: The Race Beat for discussion on  women in positions of power and leadership. Guests include two women in leadership roles at Humboldt State University - Christine Mata, Associate Dean of Students and Dr. Cheryl L. Johnson, Executive Director of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. As women of color, we will discuss how sexism, feminism, ageism and racism may intersect or collide while holding leadership positions.


In his Histories, Herodotus doesn't just describe the war between Persia and Athens, he paints a vast canvas of the cultures and tribes across the Persian Empire and the Greek city-states, how they evolved, and what brought them into conflict.  Join Mary and Solomon for a fascinating look at the ancient world of this entertaining work.

A Hand Through The Smoke is a film exploring the human face of the nuclear weapons industry through inter-generational conversation. The film brings young adults to this international conversation by introducing youth activists to mentors and peacemaking experts from diverse backgrounds --- scientists, activists, policy advisors, and people displaced by testing and mining. 

Emmy award winning lighting director Edmond Deraedt spoke with KHSU's Lorna Bryant about the film and the fundraising campaign designed to assist in completing the project. They have a Facebook page for updates and info.


KQED's John Sepulvado joined Lorna Bryant for a discussion about recent reporting from the streets of Humboldt County.

KQED's California Report spent time in KHSU's studios and reported on the North Coast scene. Were we offended? Who gets to air 'our' dirty laundry?

Here are clips of the KQED stories:


As the U.S. prepares for Thanksgiving next week, many of us think of the image of happy 'Pilgrims and Indians' coming together for a big feast. But what about the rest of the story -- the historical facts versus the Mayflower myths?
