APA Compass on 12/07/12
Today, we're featuring three internationally known personalities - one artist, one musician, and one athlete:
- Jorge Cham writes and illustrates his popular comic "Piled Higher and Deeper" (PhD comics), drawing from his experiences at Stanford and Caltech.
- Rupa Marya, lead singer and director of the band, Rupa and the April Fishes, tells us about the inspiration for their third album, "Build": people all around the world who are waking up and speaking up against the abuse of power. Rupa's segment will be broadcast on both APA Compass and Stage and Studio.
- Basketball phenom, Jeremy Lin, spoke with us during his recent visit to Portland. Jeremy Lin, with his outstanding play, unusual backstory, and humility, generated the global phenomena known as "LIN-sanity"!
- Our very own Kushlani de Soyza relates an Angry APA Minute, which she calls "White Christmas – a Rant".
