BYU Broadcasting announces launch of first radio-journal series

BYU Broadcasting announces the launch of its first radio-journal series, "Believing Minds." Brigham Young University Academic Vice President John S. Tanner hosts the new series that will be broadcast weekly starting in October on KBYU-FM 89.1 and on the Dish/DirectTV satellite station BYU Radio.

In each 30-minute episode, the former English Department chair interviews distinguished authors, scholars and guests. These discussions, along with Dr. Tanner's commentary, bring listeners an introspective view of the interplay between Christian belief and human experience.

Tanner is a renowned scholar of the 17th-century poet and philosopher John Milton. In discussing the purpose of this new radio journal, Tanner said, "Believers have a religious duty to learn truth, to love truth and to live truth. He then quoted Milton's work, "Of Education": "The end of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of knowledge to love him, to imitate him, to be like him."

KBYU-FM airs the first part of the radio-journal series, "Dicken's Ecological Vision," Thursday, Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. The show features an interview with University of California-Berkeley professor Robert Alter and explores how Charles Dickens imagined the physical and moral ecology of early 19th-century England.

A complete listing of broadcast times and topics, as well as information on receiving BYU Radio and a live stream of KBYU-FM, can be found at www.byubroadcasting.org.

Women are routinely excluded from exercise research across the country. A new BYU study shows why that’s misguided

January 26, 2023
A new BYU study debunks the assumption that menstrual cycles disqualify women from exercise research. Analyzing women’s exercise performance across their menstrual cycles, researchers found no variability in endurance thresholds or performance: from workout to workout, women’s performance was just as consistent as men’s.
