Last night a student-led encampment in solidarity with Palestine was erected on the lawn of Presidents Circle at the University of Utah. By midnight, law enforcement had taken down the tents and push everyone out. RadioACTive spoke with Utah News Dispatch Reporter Kyle Dunphey and Vanessa Hudson, editor of the student newspaper, The Daily Utah Chronicle.

Voices from Hebron: RadioACTive Correspondent Tamrika Khvtisiashvili is back with a conversation she Zoomed earlier today with three friends who live in Hebron, a Palestinian City in the West Bank, south of Jerusalem, Israel. She spoke with Hamed Qawasmeh, co-founder and former director of the Hebron International Resource Network; Dr. Mohammed Tamimi, director of the Language & Translation Center at Palestine Polytechnic University in Hebron; and Tamimi's daughter, Munia, to find out what life is like since Israel retaliated in the wake of the Hamas terrorist attack of October 7th.

Music May: For the last few years, the Salt Lake Film Society has been holding Music May to screen a specially curated slate of music-related films. RadioACTive checks in with SLFS Executive Director Tori Baker and guest curator Kurt Bestor on this year’s lineup.
