This month, the state opened its new health insurance marketplace, called Covered California. It’s a way for people who are uninsured to purchase health insurance plans that meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. 

On opening day, Covered California was busy. The website saw almost a million hits, and close to 60,000 people tied up their phone lines.  Waits of over 30 minutes were common.

High above the Bay, at the top of Mount Tam, is a little shack—up on stone tower, just that much higher above the peak where it sits.  It’s called the Gardner Lookout, and it’s one of two fire lookout towers in Marin County.

KALW’s Martina Castro asked reporters with the San Quentin Radio Project currently serving time there to imitate the sounds of their daily lives. Take a listen.

At its heart, California’s food economy is all about agriculture. Our state produces almost half of the fruits and vegetables consumed in the United States. In the Bay Area, one of our biggest crops is grapes. And right now, it’s harvest time-- it started on August 1st and could run through late fall.
