Spring 2007 - Episode 4 (Apr 30, 2007)
The Word of the Day on Assignment: Radio is "grounded," as we present a series of stories that all have this one word in common. Jerry Wofford finds out what class is like when it's anything but grounded as he heads down to the Max Westheimer Airport, where the OU Department of Aviation teaches students how to become Flying Sooners. Jarrel Wade explores the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History's collection of dinosaur bones, and discovers what makes these artifacts, which have remained "grounded" for millions of years before their discovery, so special. Morgan Fenn talks with Chad Higgins, an OU sociology senior who turned to religion after he became burnt out on the party lifestyle. Chad is one of millions of Americans who remain grounded because of their faith. And Brian Hardzinski conducts a one-on-one interview with Jason Orr, an OU Public Administration junior whose life is far more grounded than the typical college student. At 31, with two kids, Jason decided to return to school in order to provide a better life for his kids, and set a positive example he hopes will resonate long after he's completed his degree.
