UHD students hosted Professor Hank Roubicek's "So What's Your Story" on the local radio station, KPFT. All six were students in Dr. Roubicek's Story Telling course and they are all involved with the management and running of UHD's new I-Radio station. Over the course of the hour-long program, the discussants explained the importance of live storytelling to forming long-lasting friendships and to processing events in one's life. You can listen to UHD's I-Radio Tuesday through Thursday, 10 AM - 2 PM.
