“Oh! Wow! There it is! We have a winner!” she exclaims near the intersection of Geary Boulevard and 5th Avenue in San Francisco.

This Saturday at 5pm, we'll talk about the Bay Area Storytelling Festival happening next weekend in Orinda, we'll celebrate Record Store day by playing lots of folk vinyl, and Happy Earthquake Day!

Last week, the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park launched a major new exhibit called “Earthquake.” It has a walk-through model of the earth, an interactive space to teach earthquake preparedness, and even live ostriches. (Apparently, there’s a connection.) There’s also an earthquake simulator resembling an old Victorian home, bringing us right back to the big one in 1906.
