  • Knoxville, like many other cities, is exploring new ways to reduce and address violence. On July's Dialogue, we’ll hear about some of those ideas and initiatives from LaKenya Middlebrook, the City of Knoxville’s first Director of Community Safety; activist Denzel Grant of Men on a Mission and the Turn Up Knox program; and new Knoxville Police Chief Paul Noel. WUOT's Chrissy Keuper hosts Dialogue, Wednesday July 6 at noon ET.
  • Forty years ago, the world came to Knoxville for the 1982 World’s Fair, which was formally known as the Knoxville International Energy Exposition. WUOT's Chrissy Keuper and Todd Steed take a look back at the event that put Knoxville in the spotlight, built the iconic Sunsphere, and changed the city. But what were those changes? And what was expected from the fair that didn't happen? Our guests: Jack Neely, Knoxville historian and Executive Director of the Knoxville History Project; Ernie Freeberg, University of Tennessee History Department Chair; Eric Dawson, Manager of the Knox County Public Library's McClung Historical Collection.
  • WUOT's Chrissy Keuper speaks with Dr. Jan Simek of the University of Tennessee Department of Anthropology about his book, A Dark Pathway: Precontact Native American Mud Glyphs from 1st Unnamed Cave, Tennessee, published by University of Tennessee Press.
  • Conversations about Tennessee's climate and weather are becoming more and more complicated.

WUOT's Chrissy Keuper spoke with three Tennessee climatologists, one from each of the state’s Grand Divisions: Kelsey Ellis, Alisa Hass, and Dorian Burnette.
  • East Tennessee State University is a Center of Excellence for Appalachian Studies and Services. WUOT's Chrissy Keuper spoke with Center Director and Chair of ETSU’s Appalachian Studies department Ronald Roach; professor, musician, and music scholar Ted Olson; and ETSU Poet-in-Residence and English professor Jesse Graves about what Appalachian Studies are and how they've changed over the years.
