    Local USA [#210] Veterans Coming Home: Women in the Military America has 165,000 women enlisted and active, and an additional 35, 000 serving as officers - but our female soldiers are still fighting a battle of perception. Five shorts from the Veterans Coming Home Project looks at women in the military. From Nashville Public Television, WIFE, MOTHER, SOLDIER is the story of a female vet who held the line on the battlefield while her civilian husband held the line at home. FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE TEAM profiles an Army veteran and recruiter who missed the close bonds of military service - then found that camaraderie in the all-female sport of roller derby. From Wisconsin Public Television, PEACEFULLY ORGANIC looks at the difficult struggle many soldiers face in transitioning back to civilian life. In AMERICA'S FUNNIEST VETS ARE SERIOUS ABOUT SERVICE, a veteran uses comedy to share her story, including the harassment she endured in the military. And ON THE HOME FRONT reflects on the career of an Army intelligence officer who received a Bronze star for her military service - a recognition that doesn't always translate to the civilian world, especially for female veterans. duration 26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Changing Seas [#901] The Future of Seafood It is estimated there will be two billion more people on the planet by mid-century. To feed this booming world population, more fish will need to be farmed than ever before.

  • 6:30 am
    Changing Seas [#902] Toxic Algae: Complex Sources and Solutions Lake Okeechobee was once the blue heart of Florida, pumping fresh water down to the Everglades and beyond.

  • 7:00 am
    Changing Seas [#903] The Fate of Carbon For millennia, the exchange of CO2 between the oceans and atmosphere has been in balance.

    • 2/22/17: Fremont Peak tower transmissions, including KQET DT25
