This week, Peninsula Press reporter Matt Hansen tells us that the waters are rising in San Mateo County – and coastal communities aren’t the only ones facing drastic changes as sea levels mount. Ben Custer reports from Palo Alto on how the local school district is making money out of compost. And Peninsula Report correspondent Katie Straub tells us about a design-thinking project aimed at our backsides. 

But first, news broke this week that ticks in local preserves pack a bacteria-loaded punch. Stanford researcher Dan Salkeld published research this week in the journal Emerging Infectious Disease showing that not only is Lyme disease present in California parks – it’s joined by a new, previously undetected tick-borne pathogen.

We take a big breath post Super Bowl and start thinking about a new year and a new season – San Francisco 49ers fans have said goodbye to Candlestick Park and will be flocking south in a few months. Will Santa Clara be ready for them?

It’s Halloween night and we bring you tales from tarantulas to the ghastliest subject of all: our daily commutes.

Peninsula Press reporter Maya Horowitz brings us a dirge for one local fixture: the Mermaid Inn Motel. The siren song of the El Camino strip has reached its end.

Citizen scientists have been creeping through the bushes of a local park tracking down creepy crawlies of all sorts – even a seasonally appropriate beastie, the tarantula. The Peninsula Press’ Emil Vazquez tracked the smartphone-wielding citizen scientists on their mission this month. 

California was once the flower capital of the US, but the blossoms of that industry have withered over time. Peninsula Press Reporter Matt Hansen went in search of the roses of yore.

And you’ve spotted them around the peninsula – big solid blue bikes holstered in racks along the Caltrain corridor. The Bay Area Bikeshare program is set to expand in the coming year. But as Peninsula Press reporter Lauren Goode has been reporting, the program has thus far launched with mixed results.

On KZSU’s Peninsula Report: Stanford University’s Eric Dunham is an assistant professor of geophysics and, perhaps most importantly, spends his time studying things that seem like they might kill us: big earthquakes. Volcanoes that are about to erupt. 

Dunham published findings in the journal Nature Geoscience this week about outcry emerging from a volcanoes depths. As earthquakes accelerated just before a recent Alaskan eruption, their sonified pattern sounded – well, sorta scary.

And Silicon Valley Business Journal reporter Luke Stangel joins me to scry the future - how is tech changing TV, what new products is Google going to throw in the mix, and how do we feel about the newest teen werewolf show. Spoiler: you will find the commentators divided.
