WATC: The Coronavirus Vaccines - What You Need To Know
On Sunday, Dec. 20, All Things Considered will spend the full hour answering the big questions about the new coronavirus vaccines: how they work, how they were tested, how they’ll be distributed, and how to talk about them with people who aren’t sure they want one. Host Michel Martin will be in conversation with NPR’s science reporters, epidemiologists, and others for everything you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccines. Tune in Sunday at 5 p.m. for this informative deep dive.
Fundraising Update: Nearing the 3/4 Mark
KGOU's December fundraiser is receiving great support from listeners, with 329 donations at this time. If we reach our goal of 500 contributions before year's end, that will total an additional $10,000 from Home Creations to KGOU and to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

If you have given to this community partnership, thank you! There's still time to have your donation counted -- use our online giving form or mail your check before Dec. 31.

Your contribution will help KGOU further our mission in 2021, providing news, information and entertainment for all. And you'll be helping fellow Oklahomans -- possibly in your own community -- fight hunger in these uncertain times.

Code Switch: An Overnight Success 7 Years In the Making
Back in 2013, NPR assembled a team of journalists to provide insights at the intersection of race and culture in a weekly blog. In 2016, the Code Switch team launched a podcast. This month, Apple named it THE podcast of 2020. NPR's Public Editor Kelly McBride takes a look at how NPR created and innovated the Code Switch concept, which she says is something of a playbook for how a news organization can expand its audiences.
