KUT Audio News Roundup
Some of the audio news we've produced in the past 24 hours.
A public hearing in Austin tomorrow will address a proposed rule allowing 36 other states to ship their low-level radioactive waste to west Texas. As KUT's Erika Aguilar reports, the rule has environmentalists and the new governor of Vermont raising their eyebrows.
69 years ago yesterday, the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor propelled the US into World War II. The War also led to the internment of thousands of Japanese, German and Italian Americans. As KUT's Matt Largey reports, researchers are now trying to preserve and memorialize those sites in Texas.
A year ago, the Texas Longhorns were preparing for the national college football title game against Alabama. As KUT's Ben Philpott reports, this year was a different story, leading to changes for next year that are already underway.
Elizabeth Edwards passed away Tuesday at her home. We revisit a conversation with Edwards during a visit to Austin a few years ago.
