Why California still has some of the worst air quality in the country. Meet Polartropica, the artist behind the theme song of CapRadio’s podcast “Mid Pacific.” Insight’s “Concert Connect” curates upcoming concerts in Northern California.
California Air Quality Report
Despite years of trying to get our air quality under control, California still has some of the worst air in the country. In fact, almost all California residents live in an area with a failing grade for air quality according to the American Lung Association. One of the worst areas on the list is right here in the Sacramento region. After decades of trying to improve our air quality, what more needs to be done? We are joined on Insight by Will Barrett, National Senior Director of Clean Air Advocacy for the American Lung Association to discuss the findings, next steps on how to improve our air quality, and the risks if we fail to act quickly.
CapRadio’s new podcast “Mid Pacific” explores Asian American identity through food, politics, family, and much more, to better understand the feeling of being between two worlds. On Insight, we’ll meet the artist behind the theme song. Polartropica is a Los Angeles-based galactic dream pop artist and composer. They join Insight to share how their Asian American identity has shaped their music.
