Guest host Elise Hu steps in for Sam this week. She is joined by panelists Jacob Margolis, science reporter for Southern California Public Radio, and Peter Hamby, host of Snapchat's Good Luck America, and contributing writer for Vanity Fair. They discuss the aftermath of a California school shooting, the fall of WeWork, and the lawmaker who may have farted on air. Plus, why Mister Rogers is still ingrained in the American psyche, years after his PBS show went off the air.
For the first time in a generation, a pair of big earthquakes shook Southern Californians. If you felt it -- or even just heard about it -- you may have some questions. In this episode lead producer, Misha Euceph gets answers from hometown hero, seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones.
Jacob Margolis (@JacobMargolis), KPCC science reporter and host of the podcast The Big One, talks with Andy about the two recent major California earthquakes, what they mean for those living on nearby faultlines, what to do to prepare yourself for future quakes, FEMA's earthquake safety checklist, Jacob's supply shopping list and and his podcast detailing the repercussions of a hypothetical catastrophic earthquake in Los Angeles.
