SCOTUS and tribal lands, Fractured Fairytales with poet Rob Carney, authors and AP test scorers Jeffrey Perso and David Holper, first-time local author Emily Bernath

Tonight's lineup:

The Supreme Court will soon issue a decision in Carpenter v. Murphy, a case that may be the largest restoration of Native land in U.S. history or the continuation of displacement, theft, and broken treaties. RadioACTive spoke with Braidan Weeks, host of KRCL's Living The Circle of Life, and reporter Rebecca Nagle

  • Nagle is an Oklahoma journalist and citizen of the Cherokee Nation. She also hosts This Land, an 8-episode podcast about how a cut-and-dry murder case opened an investigation into half the land in Oklahoma and the treaty rights of five tribes. Nagle will check in with Weeks during this Sunday’s edition of Living the Circle of Life, which airs from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m.

First-time local author Emily Bernath, who’s book Broken Lenses debuts on eBook tomorrow, paperback Sept. 10. Bernath attends a non-denominational church, K2 the Church, in the Salt Lake Valley and has a passion for reaching out to women and guiding them to living out an identity rooted in truth.

If you’re having test anxiety driving by the Salt Palace this week, it’s because Advanced Placement scoring herds are in town to grade a variety of national exams this week. Two of them, award-winning authors Jeffrey Perso and David Holper, stopped by to read from their latest books.

Fractured Fairytales: Poet Rob Carney is back with his verse on families, Disneyland and the immigration crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. Carney is the author of The Book of Sharks and four other collections of poems.
