New situation, new logos. They look pretty cool, don't they?

We are phasing out the use of the DVD/printed guide version of News Currents for many reasons. One, it's not sustainable for the environment. Two, with the recent changes to the USPS, our subscribers have tired of having to wait for envelopes that arrive late, or not at all. Three: it's more convenient -- the online version includes a robust Archive of more than 20 years of back issues! Four, it's less expensive to produce, so we can keep our prices competitive.

Great question! We hear this a lot. Cable and broadcast news is fine for what it is. But these shows are not set up for truly educating people about the history, the context, and the meaning of the stories they present. Knowledge Unlimited has a long history of hand-crafting stories that emphasize background knowledge, vocabulary in context, and critical thinking skills. Our programs encourage dialogue and debate, rather than just passive listening -- this is not just better practice, but also a lot more fun for everyone.
