Podcast 1/24/2014

Given that it's nearing the end of MLK Jr. week,  DJ Great Scott and special J.R. Tarabocchi (Coordinator for Outreach and Advancement for PSU) listen to one more speech about how non-violence is the most potent weapon:

"Through violence, you may murder a murderer but you cannot murder murder... Through violence, you can murder a liar but you cannot establish truth... Through violence, you can murder a hater but you cannot murder hatred... Darkness cannot put out darkness, only the light can do that." (Martin Luther King Jr, 1967)

J.R. discusses his involvement with local businesses who support PSU, one of which being Joe's Burgers, which has the "Scholarship Burger" contest, where students submit ideas for a delicious burger (try the "Hot Green Viking"!) to go on the menu. Half of the proceeds from the sales of this burger circulate back into PSU to fund student scholarships. Another business that J.R. works with is Zip Car that funds the Student Employee of the Year reward, and offers free driving-credit for students traveling to community service project sites. 

The show ends with a TED talk by Diana Nyad (who swam 100 miles from Cuba to Florida) on the concept of not giving up. What are some of themes we can take from Diana's TED talk that reflect the life of Martin Luther King Jr?
