All Things Considered Host / Reporter

Justin is a recent graduate of NAU and is originally from the great state of California. He came to KNAU in the winter of 2013 as a news intern, and then a part time reporter in the fall of that year. Justin also was a reporter for NAU’s campus newspaper, The Lumberjack for three and a half years, and continues to play on the school’s Quidditch team. Justin’s favorite part of radio reporting is the emotion that can be conveyed in audio that just can’t be done in print.

There’s been a documented increase this year in hate speech and crimes against Jews. That’s according to the Anti-Defamation League. That trend is disturbing to Dr. Jacob Eisenbach who survived the Holocaust. He was rounded up as a teenager by Nazi soldiers in his native Poland. He went on to become a public speaker and Holocaust educator and is lecturing tonight at Northern Arizona University. KNAU’s Justin Regan had the chance to speak to him earlier about the cultivation of hatred.

Flagstaff is one of the latest cities to open a community food pantry. It’s a twist on traditional food banks, which generally provide hungry people with boxes of non-perishable foods. The Full Circle People’s Pantry of Flagstaff operates more like a grocery store, allowing customers to shop for donated food, including fresh produce, meat and milk. Organizers and customers alike say the pantry reduces the stigma of poverty and hunger, AND builds community. In the latest segment of our ongoing series Eats and Beats—stories about food and music—KNAU’s Justin Regan has this audio postcard.

Route 66 is deeply tied to American history. It brought Dust Bowl refugees to California, moved troops across the country during World War 2 and ushered in the family road trip. But eventually freeways dominated the landscape and that made things tough for Mother Road businesses. So the National Park Service stepped in with a grant program to help Route 66 communities survive. That program is set to expire soon and business owners are worried. KNAU’s Justin Regan has more.

Every piece of art has meaning. But art made from found items takes on a new level of symbolism. The materials themselves can be the inspiration for the artist. This month, Flagstaff is celebrating the 15th annual Recycled Art Exhibition. Here, we profile two artists.  The first is oil painter Rebecca Macintyre. She created a mosaic inspired by mountains of broken sleds and snow play trash left in the forest this winter.

Since the beginning of the year, there have been at least 100 bomb threats targeting Jewish Community Centers across the nation. Synagogues and cemeteries have been desecrated in New York, Pennsylvania and recently, Arizona. Today we hear two voices on the subject of hate, its manifestation and destructive potential. First a Rabbi in Flagstaff and second a former neo-Nazi skinhead both of whom know the depths of the emotion.
