Black writing on a yellow background

On this West Virginia Week, we learned about the latest U.S. Census and what it means for West Virginia’s population. We also heard about a big shift coming in how the country gets its electricity, and we learned about the Pope’s decision to formally give his approval for priests to bless same-sex couples.

We also discovered how students can benefit from mental and physical activities over the holidays, and we explored new research that aims to help air traffic control become safer and more reliable.

Finally, we got to experience a ride on the West Virginia Christmas Train at Cass State Park.

Caroline MacGregor is our host this week. Our theme music is by Matt Jackfert.
