Ionizing Radiation as a Cancer Treatment

The prognosis for many cancers has improved due to many factors including a better understanding of the cancer, earlier detection, and better treatment often with fewer side effects. Ionizing radiation for certain cancers is one of these improved treatments. Today with the help of Dr. Larry Daugherty, radiation oncologist at the Alaska Cancer Treatment Center, we will examine how radiotherapy aids the treatment of cancer; and we will learn about the nonprofit organization Radiating Hope which is working to improve cancer care globally.

Gray Whale Migration

Gray Whale Migration

One of the first signs of spring in coastal Alaska is the appearance of gray whales, who pass our way on their annual journey from Mexico to the Bering Sea. Along our uninhabited shores, the whales get a lot more privacy than they do down south, but you can see them from boats and coastal towns, and tour boats from Seward go out to view the whales through April. On today’s show, we’re talking about going out to see the whales this spring, and the biology of the whales and their amazing migration.

Divorce without lawyers

Divorce without lawyers

Divorce puts Alaskans into the legal system to settle their emotional problems the most expensive way possible, with dueling attorneys. Few of us can afford that. We’ll talk about splitting up without attorneys. Support exists to mediate the way to a new life, dividing assets and child custody, and resolving your own future rather than turning those decisions over to a judge.
