Issues & Ideas: Japanese American internment, deadly U.S. military helicopters and media literacy

Apr 29, 2019

On this episode of Issues & Ideas, we revisit how the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II affected the Central Coast, in a conversation with local historian Jim Gregory. We also speak to the director of a documentary looking at the long history of negligence and institutional failings around what's called the deadliest aircraft in the U.S. military. Father Ian Delinger joins KCBX Morning Edition host Rachel Duchak in her Los Osos garden, where homegrown, carefully attended, and seasonally selected plants fuel Rachel's passion for gardening. And new contributor Beth Thornton brings us to a Santa Barbara community media center that's including media literacy activities at its camps and youth programs.
