NPR Special Reports: I'll Be Seeing You
Without our being fully aware, hacking, artificial intelligence, cyber and data surveillance has crept into our lives. NPR's Dina Temple-Raston reports in a four-part radio series on a variety of subjects connected by rapidly shifting technology .

The series will investigate the mysterious death of one of the world's most famous hackers, explain how artificial intelligence is saving the elephants, go behind-the-scenes with a secret military team hacking into ISIS, and explore how technology is changing the way the government catches spies.

I'll Be Seeing You is KGOU's Sunday Radio Matinee , Sundays at 12 p.m., Sept. 15 - Oct. 6. Related preview stories will begin airing on NPR's newsmagazines next week.
Fall Fundraising: KGOU Listening Is Time Well Spent
Pie Chart private giving is 73 percent of FY18 income
What is the price of being well informed? It can be calculated in the amount of time spent in pursuit of knowledge. As a regular listener, you know that the time you spend listening to KGOU public radio is time well spent.

As our fall fundraising season gets underway, we're asking listeners to spend not only their time, but also their dollars for the news, information and entertainment that they value. Listener support makes up the largest piece of KGOU's funding "pie." It's what allows KGOU to bring you programs that are worthy of your time -- and your investment. If you’ve already given this year, thanks! If not, there's no better time than now.

New Season - How Curious Searches for 'Horny Toads'
How Curious, KGOU's exploration of Oklahoma's oddities, begins a new season Tuesday, Sept. 10. In the season opener, listener Gabe Denton recalls seeing 'horny toads,' the native lizard Phrynosoma, when he was growing up in Choctaw. But now he hasn't seen any in his yard in decades. Why? KGOU's Claire Donnelly goes searching for answers to this and other listeners' questions. Tune in Tuesdays through October during the newsmagazines, or subscribe on your favorite podcasting app.

NEW! "Alexa, play Morning Edition "
As smart speakers -- those devices that respond to verbal commands -- become essentially the tabletop radio of today, public radio continues its quest to be wherever you are listening.

KGOU is participating in a new skill for Alexa-enabled devices: to play Morning Edition on demand, complete with KGOU's local updates on news, weather, traffic and community happenings. Listen on your own schedule and never miss a story!

Just for fun...
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then actor and comedian Nate Smith really loves public radio . He obviously spends a great deal of time listening to his local station, because he's got the voices down pat (although his Ira Glass impression, in this editor's opinion, could use some work). Viewer beware: there's some not-safe-for-broadcast language in here.
