Insight: Darrell Steinberg / Worldwide Seismic Activity / Tribes At Capitol Stage / Sound Advice: Blue Dog Jam




Capital Public Radio’s Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler sat down with Senate President Pro-tem Darrell Steinberg this week to ask the legislative leader about his time in office, and what he has planned for the future.

Full Interview:

An earthquake in Napa. An earthquake in Peru. A volcano causing earthquakes in Iceland. Are all these seismic events related? Most likely, not. So, what’s happening? Joining us to better explain these events is John Anderson, a professor of geophysics at the University of Nevada, Reno and the director of the Nevada Seismological Laboratory.

Capital Stage's production of Tribes, written by Nina Raine and directed by Sacramento native Jonathan Williams, will take the stage Sept. 3 through Oct. 5. The narrative follows a deaf man named Billy navigating the struggles of belonging, family, and communication. Billy is played by Stephen Drabicki of New York who is hard of hearing, much like his character.
