Fall 2007 Episode 2 - One-On-One Interviews (Oct 29, 2007)
This week on Assignment: Radio, we present a series of one-on-one interviews with prominent and noteworthy members of the OU community. Peju Faboro sits down with Dr. Chris Howard, an OU Vice President who has studied at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, created business and humanitarian endeavors in Africa, served as a military intelligence officer searching for Osama bin Laden, and earned a degree from Harvard Business School. And heís only 38. Jack Hobson is an adviser for the study abroad program, and travels all over the world to recruit students for OUís exchange program. Katrina Smith spoke with Jack as he explained how he uses his passion for traveling to help students realize their goals of furthering their education overseas. Boris Georgievski found out about a new book by OU Journalism professor Fred Beard that looks at humor in the advertising industry, and was described as ďa delightful romp through a century of business advertising, capturing both the highlights and the low points of what makes us laugh." Assignment: Radio's Bianca Lopez also headed over to the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication to talk with Deborah Chester, who, in addition to teaching full-time at OU, has authored more than 30 science fiction and fantasy novels. And Will Prescott examines OU Law Professor Randy Coyne's views on civil liberties, and how they've changed since serving as a defense counsel to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, and how that experience applies to defending US detainees at Guantanamo Bay.
