Myths Of Sex Trafficking, Tom Doelger And Radio Retrospective

Understanding The Facts Behind Human Trafficking
Is Seattle the number one place for sex trafficking in the country? Is Washington state third in the country? That’s what some people are hearing. Facts and figures are used to inform the public and lawmakers about human trafficking but misinformation can be passed on as well. KUOW’s Sara Lerner joins us to explain how we get the right and wrong information about human trafficking.

Reflections On Commencement
Seattle’s Tom Doelger has been teaching English to high school students at Lakeside School since 1985.  This time of year he’s often called on to speak to graduating students and their families. Doegler's reflections on life’s crossroads are always drawn from his own personal experiences. Doegler's path to teaching was an unlikely one. He underwent a jarring life transition as he moved from the glamorous world of 1970s Aspen, Colo. ski patrol to a job teaching writing to middle schoolers. Doelger speaks with KUOW’s Dave Beck about his book “On Occasion: Tom Doelger Speaks.”

The Woman Behind “Let’s Pretend”
There weren’t a lot of female directors during the Golden Age of Radio. Nila Mack was one of the few who earned herself an office on the 14th floor of CBS beside Edward R. Murrow.
