On this week’s episode of KRCU’s Going Public, we’re talking about Hispanic Heritage month with Debbie Lee-DiStefano, a professor of Spanish in the department of modern languages, anthropology and geography at Southeast Missouri State University. We’ll talk about what exactly Hispanic Heritage month is all about, the contributions Hispanic Americans have made in Southeast Missouri, and what activities you can look forward to. And later on in the show, we’ll hear from Assistant Chief of the Cape Girardeau Fire Department Mark Hasheider on he and his team’s experience in the Texas Gulf Coast during Hurricane Harvey and if they’ll be needed in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
