Aired on Friday, April 28th.

Tomorrow night, Saturday the 29th, the Downtown Tulsa campus of Tulsa Community College will host TEDxTulsaCC, a special gathering thus described at the TED website: "TEDxTulsaCC is a multi-sensory, multi-disciplinary event with a goal to bring Tulsa's best ideas to our community and the world. Attendees will experience enlightening talks, a shape-shifting art exhibition, the world premier of new choral work, surprise musical performances, and more. But the audience won't simply observe -- they will participate in fun exercises and a free exchange of ideas that will leave them feeling inspired and empowered to act on their own great ideas." Our guests on today's ST are both participating in this TEDx event, which will happen at the TCC Center for Creativity: Annina Collier is the Dean of the Center for Creativity as well as the organizer of the gathering, and Glenna Cooper will give a presentation at this event entitled "Our Journey to Protect & Interpret Deaf Culture" (and she's also the Chair for American Sign Language Education, English as a Second Language, and World Language at Tulsa Community College).

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
