Sat 3/27 9a: This time on The Children’s Hour we’re leaping into learning about lemurs with Faye Goodwin, an educator at the Duke Lemur Center. Find out how humans are related to these adorable primates, and discover why they only live in the wild in one place in the world. We’ll explore the many species of lemurs, and hear what must happen for lemurs to survive. 

Plus the kids from the Extinction Diaries highlight how these creatures are incredibly vulnerable for becoming extinct. 

Katie Stone is the host and producer of The Children's Hour radio show and podcast. The show's goal is to bring informative, entertaining and engaging radio programming to listeners of all ages, showcasing local kids and kid-friendly organizations, while involving kids in all aspects of the production. Katie works with a crew of dedicated children who help produce the show, including writing and voicing scripts and reviews, helping choose jokes, show themes, music and guests, and assisting in all aspects of the live broadcast. Katie also reaches into the community, with regular live broadcasts from venues across New Mexico. She also partners with teachers to create radio shows for class projects, and joins with community organizations to bring kids voices to public radio. She hopes everyone listening comes away with new knowledge about the topic du jour. Katie started in radio when she was just 14 years old at WDGC-fm in Downers Grove, Illinios. Katie is the executive director of The Children's Hour, Inc, a New Mexico nonprofit dedicated to creating and distributing public radio for kids. The show is produced at the Sun Spot Solar Studio. Katie and her husband have raised four kids, and are delighted to be grandparents. They live in a handmade house on a solar powered organic farm in Albuquerque near the Rio Grande tending their orchard, gardens, chickens, children, a llama, cats, dogs, fish and thousands of bees.
