An Upcoming Lecture Here at TU: "How to Make Oklahoma's Women's Incarceration Crisis Disappear"

Aired on Thursday, December 14th.

Our guest on this edition of StudioTulsa is Stephen Galoob, an Associate Professor of Law here at TU. Prof. Galoob will give a free-to-the-public lecture at noon tomorrow (Friday the 15th) at the TU College of Law; his talk is entitled "How to Make Oklahoma's Women's Incarceration Crisis Disappear (With Nothing Up Our Sleeves)." It's based on certain findings that he and some of his law students have been looking into lately -- i.e., a handful of existing if little-known provisions within Oklahoma law having to do with human trafficking. These provisions, as we learn today, might well afford ways by which the current women's incarceration crisis in our state could be reversed -- or even eradicated. Also on today's ST, our commentator Connie Cronley is thinking about annoying holiday music.

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.
