Arizona teachers are protesting some of the lowest pay in the nation. Some marched on the capitol and many others are wearing red as a sign of solidarity. KNAU’s Justin Regan reports.


Teenagers across the country have become activists in the wake of last month’s shooting at a high school in Parkland Florida. They’ve marched on Washington and their state capitols, met with politicians and held walkouts demanding gun reform and better school safety. They’re using social media platforms to organize more protests and discuss the idea of arming teachers. KNAU’s Justin Regan and Gillian Ferris interviewed some students at Coconino High School in Flagstaff to see what they think about school gun violence in the U.S. post-Parkland.

Parkland Florida is the scene of the latest mass school shooting in the U.S. Hundreds of students and their families have been affected. These shootings have a ripple effect in a community that reaches far and wide. Austin Eubanks knows about that. He survived the Columbine shooting almost 20 years ago and has experienced first-hand that kind of trauma. For Eubanks it manifested in the form of more than a decade of substance abuse. Now sober, and helping others in recovery, he spoke with KNAU’s Justin Regan about the invisible injuries of a mass shooting and the connection between trauma and addiction.

In the wee hours of the morning tomorrow, the U.S. Men’s Curling team will play for the gold medal against Sweden. The sport has been the darling of this Winter Olympics. It’s a quirky game some people call shuffleboard on ice and it’s taking up a lot of space on social media. Curling does not have historical roots in Arizona. But there are some cold weather transplants who have a deep connection to the game. In this audio postcard, we hear from a curling enthusiast trying to bring a piece of the sport to the southwest, a former competitor and a member of Olympic curling royalty.
