I teach philosophy at California State University, San Bernardino—about 70 miles east of Los Angeles. 40% of my students are first-generation college students.

DN! Helps teachers introduce unreported topics of the American media to Russian students!

"I often used your transcribed interviews and reportage to illustrate and/or introduce many of the usually-unreported topics of the American (and Russian) news media to my students. Many of my students were very interested in the various subjects which your program covers. I constantly recommended the use of your site and anything it links to as high-quality info resources. The fact that your program is transcribed makes it wonderfully useful — students can listen for meaning, and they often can learn a lot from context alone."
