Featured on the May 5th, 2022 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:

  • If you want to know what’s going on with the coronavirus pandemic in neighboring Sonora, arguably the best source isn’t the state government or a news outlet: it’s a single grad student, whose time-intensive, volunteer effort is turning big data into solid information. From Fronteras, Murphy Woodhouse reports.

  • Find out how Live Theatre Workshop’s production Body Awareness weaves together several interesting themes. They include a mature queer couple coping with their young adult son’s Asperger condition, to debating whether posing nude for an art photographer can be considered a feminist act. Mark talks with the director and one of the lead actors about the play, which continues in Tucson through June 4th.
