Big Blue (Episode #239H)

KQED 9: Fri, Aug 28, 2015 -- 8:00 PM


Big Blue
A few decades ago, dozens of species in Monterey Bay were on the verge of extinction. Today, many of those species are now thriving. This success story is the subject of "Big Blue Live," a three-night television special that begins on Monday. PBS and the BBC are producing the show, which airs from 8 to 9 pm.

Despite the successes in Monterey Bay, oceans throughout the world are facing a new threat: acidification. KQED's Scott Shafer explains.

Thuy Vu and Scott Shafer host a discussion about the health of the oceans, and lessons to be learned from Monterey Bay.

Guests:
• Paul Rogers, managing editor of KQED's Science unit and environment writer for the San Jose Mercury News
• Dr. Emily Rivest, researcher at UC Davis Bodega Marine Laboratory
• Paul Michel, superintendent of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary

Drought Update, State of Higher Education, Julie Lythcott-Haims (Episode #238H)

KQED 9: Fri, Aug 21, 2015 -- 8:00 PM


Drought Update
Scientists have uncovered new information on the impact of California's drought. Scott Shafer talks to KQED Science Editor Craig Miller about these findings.

State of Higher Education
It's back-to-school time. Thuy Vu and Scott Shafer talk with University of California President Janet Napolitano and California Community Colleges Chancellor Brice Harris about tuition costs, class availability and student loan debt.

Julie Lythcott-Haims
Author Julie Lythcott-Haims talks with Thuy Vu about her new book, "How to Raise an Adult." The former dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford contends that a rise in so-called helicopter parenting is damaging not only to kids, but also to society as a whole.

Investigating the Use of Lethal Force by Police, Drought Update, Insurance Preparedness, Artist David Maisel (Episode #237H)

KQED 9: Fri, Aug 14, 2015 -- 8:00 PM


Investigating the Use of Lethal Force by Police
This week, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill banning the use of criminal grand juries in investigations involving the use of lethal force by police. We talk to retired Superior Court Judge LaDoris Cordell about the limitations of the grand jury system.

Drought Update
It's been two months since the state imposed new rules limiting water use. We hear from State Water Resources Control Board Chair Felicia Marcus about whether Californians are complying with those rules.

Insurance Preparedness
California's propensity for fires, floods, droughts, and earthquakes tests the limits of insurance coverage. Nancy Kincaid from the State Department of Insurance talks about what Californians can do to prepare before disaster strikes.

Artist David Maisel
Natural disasters have certainly changed California's landscape, but so too has human intervention. Artist David Maisel has been documenting those changes using aerial photography. KQED Arts Producer Lori Halloran traveled with Maisel as he photographed a once abundant water source.

Corruption Allegations, Debt Hangover (Episode #236H)

KQED 9: Fri, Aug 7, 2015 -- 8:00 PM


Corruption Allegations
Convicted felon Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow has accused San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and other city hall officials of accepting bribes. Chow was indicted last year as part of a federal criminal investigation that ended the career of a prominent San Francisco politician, former state senator Leland Yee. Newsroom takes a closer look at the allegations Chow's attorneys have made.

Guests:
• Marisa Lagos, KQED Politics and Government Reporter
• Professor Rory Little, Hastings College of Law

Debt Hangover
Arnold Schwarzenegger rode into the governor's office on a promise of putting California's fiscal house in order. But when the smoke cleared, it was evident he left behind a serious debt hangover. This week California taxpayers are finally off the hook for a debt that has loomed for more than a decade. KQED politics and government desk editor John Myers shows just how much it cost.
