This Week’s Captions: Ya Gotta Have Faith

THIS WEEK’S SHOW:
This week, we take a look at matters of faith: should immigration reform advocates regain faith in President Obama as deportations drop? What can we expect from the new pope? An undocumented lawyer’s faith in the legal system pays off as he’s finally allowed to practice. Marlon Bishop takes an in-depth look at a Brazil-based megachurch. A mother tells a story about how she prayed for her babies. We talk with two writers about their thoughts on feminism and the Catholic Church. And we kick off our series of poets offering us a bit of sabiduría.

ABOUT CAPTIONING:
Latino USA, the foremost Latino voice in public media and the longest running Latino-focused program on radio, is the first radio program to commence equal-access distribution via Captioning for Radio. “Research has shown that Latino children have a higher incidence of hearing loss and deafness than other populations,” according to Latino USA’s Anchor & Executive Producer Maria Hinojosa. “When the opportunity to break this sound barrier came to our attention, we were pleased to embrace this new technology developed by NPR Labs and Towson University for the thousands of Latinos with serious hearing loss.”
The International Center for Accessible Radio Technology (ICART), a strategic alliance between NPR and Towson University, is co-directed by Mike Starling of NPR and Ellyn Sheffield of Towson University.
