    The State of California Politics
    In his annual state of the state address Gov. Jerry Brown touted California's comeback, but he also acknowledged long-term challenges, from drought to pension deficits. As election season heats up, gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari criticized the governor's message, while Asian-American candidates Ro Khanna and Mike Honda vie for the seat of Silicon Valley's 17th Congressional district.

    Guests:
    Scott Detrow, KQED Sacramento bureau chief
    Carla Marinucci, San Francisco Chronicle senior political writer
    Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group politics reporter

    Mustache Wars and Commute Friction
    Pink mustachioed alternatives to traditional taxis, door-to-door service you can get with a cellphone app and company shuttles run by Silicon Valley employers — all efforts to expand the way we get around. But services like Lyft and Uber and the increasing presence of private buses are also generating friction and drawing increased scrutiny of their practices and insurance policies.

    Jon Brooks, KQED News Fix reporter
    C. W. Nevius, San Francisco Chronicle columnist

    Last Days of Man: Top Ten Ways to Extinction [#101H] Threats from Nature In the form of a top-10 list of doomsday scenarios, this 2-part scientific program examines disasters that have the capacity to annihilate the human race. Threats from nuclear weapons, climate change, and meteorite impacts are, of course, on the list. But there are a number of lesser known yet much more probable risks to humanity. Part 1: 5 potential threats to our survival are investigated. From risks such as collapsing stars and hostile extraterrestrials, which originate in outer space, to more down-to-earth but equally alarming dangers such as super volcanoes and natural pandemics, scientists and other experts outline the risks and potential solutions to humankind's greatest threats. duration 53:57   STEREO TVPG

    Nova [#4106H] Killer Typhoon It was the strongest cyclone to hit land in recorded history. On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan - what some are calling "the perfect storm" - slammed into the Philippines, whipping the low-lying and densely-populated islands with 200mph winds and sending a 2-story-high storm surge flooding into homes, schools, and hospitals. It wiped villages off the map and devastated cities, including the hard-hit provincial capital Tacloban. Estimates count more than 5000 dead and millions homeless.
    What made Haiyan so destructive? In-depth interviews with the meteorologists charged with tracking and forecasting Pacific storms take us inside the anatomy of the typhoon, tracking its progress from its start as a low-pressure area over Micronesia to its deadly landfall and revealing why the Pacific is such fertile ground for cyclones. But that's just part of the story of why this storm was so deadly. With crews on the ground within days of the storm, Nova reveals how conditions dramatically deteriorated in the storm's aftermath, as impassable roads and shuttered gas stations paralyzed the critical relief effort, leaving lifesaving food, water, and medicine to pile up at the airport. Disaster preparedness experts and relief workers scramble to understand why the Philippines was so vulnerable when other countries,like India, have successfully slashed storm casualty counts in recent years. As climate change and sea level rise threaten millions of the world's most impoverished people with stronger, and perhaps more frequent, storms, how can we prepare for the next monster typhoon?
