This Week's Captions: Money, Money, Money / by Maria Hinojosa | December 13, 2013


LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

THIS WEEK’S SHOW:

From Puerto Rico to the Bay Area, Latino USA examines questions of money. Marlon Bishop tells us Puerto Rico could soon default on its public debt. We examine the potential economic impact of immigration reform, a democratic system to spend public money in New York, and helping the unbanked in Oakland. We’ll hear about the debt-incurring cost of quinceañeras. We hear from two Latino tech leaders. And our series on the Dearly Deported continues.

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.
