Ethel C. Hale -- Inspiration for The Ethels, RadioActives New Award Series, Plus League of Women Voters of Utah, Photojournalist Nicole Tung, and Sneaking Into Movies from Sundance

Hosted by Lara Jones and Ma Black, tonight's show featured:

  • Davey of Sneaking Into Movies with an update from the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Follow Davey and Cody D's Sundance coverage on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, as well as KRCL's Sundance 2018 webpage.

  • Mishka Banuri of Utah Teens Talk Film, bloggers who are members of Planned Parenthood Association of Utah’s Teen Council. As members of the blogging team, teens participate in the Damn These Heels Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival, watch independent films, and interview filmmakers, advocates, and writers from all over the world. Teen bloggers strive to understand how film can promote just and humane sexual attitudes and policies, challenge current perspectives, and spark new ideas—and you can follow along with their journey here.

  • Peggy Carrico, The League of Women Voters of Utah, with a recap of Day 2 of Utah's legislative session. The League joins RadioActive Monday-Thursday during the legislature's 45-day session.

    • Each Wednesday during the session, the League meets at 11:30 a.m. in the Seagull Room next to the Senate Cafeteria for a brown bag review of what is coming up in the session.

  • Debut of The Ethels, a new award series to honor grassroots activists and community builders who make Utah a better place for everyone. They’re named after the late-Ethel C. Hale, a community activist and long-time advocate for peace and equal justice, first female taxi driver in Zion, and major drafter of KRCL’s FCC application. 

    Paul Wharton and Steve Bogden, Ethel's husband and son, respectively, talk about the woman who was proud of her FBI file (although they got her weight and eye color wrong), walked tall at city hall, and claimed fellow rabble-rousers as her tribe. Stay tuned for details about The Ethels in the weeks ahead.
