James Brown: The Next Generation

Soul/Funk Icon James Brown died on Christmas day in 2006, but his music lives on through an ensemble of school aged children from Augusta.

Dr. Christiane Northrup Visits GPB For Her New Special "Glorious Women Never Age!"

Dr. Christiane Northrup, M.D., visionary pioneer and one of the world’s leading authorities in the field of women’s health and wellness, is live tonight at GPB for the airing of her new PBS special "Glorious Women Never Age!" In the special, Dr. Northrup takes on the topic of “aging” – and turns it on its head! She challenges the most popular but least helpful perspectives on women’s “aging,” replacing the notion of decline and decrepitude with the profound understanding that growing older means an increase in wisdom and value.

Seven Steps for Ageless Living

The phrase “age is just a number” often pops up during conversations with my friends as we’re plotting the next chapters of our lives. Should we go back to school? Should we change careers? Are we ready to care for both children and aging parents in some cases? For me, rather than being a rallying cry of conviction that I am fit for whatever task lies ahead or whatever new dream I want to pursue, it’s a weak consolation.

GPB Medical Minute

If you’ve ever attended a medical conference, you may just hear a voice you’re familiar with this weekend on GPB.

Concussion Awareness at Road Atlanta

About two years ago, Rachel Daniels, Victoria Bostic, Patrick Edmond, Andrew MacCartney and myself had the chance to go to Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA.

GPB's WWII Oral History Project

A few years ago we in the Education Division got the idea that interviewing Georgia World War II veterans might be a worthwhile project. The journalist Tom Brokaw had published his book, The Greatest Generation, and it started us thinking about all the stories there must be about what Georgians experienced during the war. We found a little grant money and started the World War II Veterans Oral History Project .

Georgia Stories

One of the most used and popular educational resources here at Georgia Public Broadcasting is the video series and website GEORGIA STORIES.

This series and website support the teaching of the economic and social history of our state. It has a special place in my heart not only because I am a Social Studies teacher and historian, but also because the history of my family is part of the history of Georgia.

Pledge Drives

I really enjoy helping out during GPB pledge drives. Since I work in New Media and Education, my world revolves around computers, tablets apps and blogging. When I volunteer for pledge drives, I feel more connected to the television production process - the lights, cameras, studios and on-air personalities.


In my early college years I was a Japanese student. After three classes I was beginning to get pretty good. I was able to hold small conversations, and for the most part... I was understood by others. However, at the beginning I did sound like the man looking for his Japanese class in episode 1 of Irasshai. To many people starting to learn a new language could be daunting. If you find yourself to be one of those people...

Georgia Outdoors

I enjoy nature as much as the average person. But I don't have the guts to scale a southern Red Oak tree and spend the night sleeping in a canopy many feet off the ground. Nor do I have the nerve to crawl into caves to check up on ailing bats. Sharon Collins does and I live vicariously through her as she explores Georgia's natural wonders on Georgia Outdoors.
