This week we are joined by the wonderful Daniel Ranson, from the Industrial Arts Program at the Notre Dame Campus.

Daniela talked about her wooden wall clock and figured out for us that a journal and a diary are THE […]

Here’s what’s coming up this Wednesday on @4 on Red River Radio. Rob Mahon will have an interview with TSN Radio 1290’s Sean Assor to talk about what’s going on in the sports world this week. Have you heard of ‘Futsal’? It’s a variation of soccer (or football, if you want to call it that) that’s seen increasing popularity recently with several colleges and universities launching teams. The sport uses a four-on four teams plus a goalie, and a smaller ball than regular soccer does. Nolan Kowal will have a discussion with some members of the Red River College […]

This week we welcomed author, comedian and general wiseman Matt Abra to the show. He told us about his time in Europe as part of a Concentration Camp tour for students called The March of Remembrance and Hope.

Matt slept in a park, Daniela won two drinking contests in one night, Adrian charmed his way past security guard at a New Years Eve party in Wollongong, Australia and Manny watched his friend drink a little too much.

We’ve been obsessing about the end of humanity since humanity began. But now we’re a step closer to the real thing: Stephen Hawking says we’re headed for doomsday. But all is not lost! He thinks there’s a way for us to continue on: colonizing space. Are you even really surprised? It’s coming from a cosmologist, after all. Hawking thinks the next 1000 years will bring the human race to its knees because of nuclear warfare, global warming, and other environmental factors. He says our only hope is to find another planet to inhabit. Hawking advises young people to stop looking […]
