In a world with Facebook, Twitter, 24/7 news channels, talk radio, citizen journalism, fake news, real news, audiences are drowning in an overwhelming overload of information.  Clearly a guidepost is needed to identify what is a trustworthy and a reliable source of news and information.

Delaware Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, has created a podcast– "A Matter of Facts" – to delve into this topic as part of its mission is to engage, educate, and inspire all Delawareans through cultural programming.

This week on The Green, we bring you the latest episode of A Matter of Facts  – featuring a conversation with Delaware Dept. of Education’s Christine Alois and Shana Payne.

Earlier this week, Hurricane Michael quickly intensified and slammed into the Florida Panhandle - putting that state’s hurricane readiness to the test.

Readiness for storm’s like Michael is one area the University of Delaware’s Disaster Research Center examines in depth, and the center is part of a larger group recently awarded nearly $2 million dollars to specifically study the factors that influence whether people prepare for hurricanes.

For this week's Enlighten Me, Delaware Public Media’s Sophia Schmidt spoke with the UD Disaster Research Center’s Joe Trainor about this hurricane preparedness study.
