Socrates Exchange Makes Some Progress Of Its Own

Mar 30, 2012

A few years back, we started this little ole series called the Socrates Exchange - originally the idea was six shows that had a really neat angle and could possibly be great radio for our listeners.  Over time the project's direction grew, and we decided to reach out to younger people, got schools discussing the topics in the classroom, and invited high schools to come and participate in live shows.

1) The Exchange: Ira Byock: The Best Care Possible  In his new book, Byock calls for a new approach toward the end of life; one focused on taking care of persons, not just “bodies”, and helping patients and their families reach decisions about dying.

Yesterday, the NHPR team put the finishing touches on setting up Pledge Central,  the location where about twenty volunteers and a handful of staff will sit and answer your calls and log your donations throughout the March Fund Drive. NHPR's fundraising success would not be possible without the two hundred volunteers who donate their time to assist in our year-long effort.

In addition to raising support for Granite Staters' beloved-and only-statewide public radio service, food is the other drive-time highlight around the station.
