Right now, the city is ground zero in one of the worst Southwest droughts in recent history. Sacramento Fire Chief Walt White talks about the wildfire situation—and also what off-the-brochure restaurants keep him and his firefighters fueled so they can keep Sacramento safe. There are dozens of great choices, because Sacramento is not just the capital of California, but is also the self-proclaimed “Farm-to-Fork Capital of the U.S.” and  has compelling reasons to support that claim. How many farms are within a 30-mile radius of the capital? The answer might surprise you.

Also joining us is John Rose, COO of iJet, who considers the burning security question: “Where would you not want to travel?” Roger Dow, President and CEO of the US Travel Association, talks about how the Open Skies Agreements between foreign countries is pitting the major U.S. carriers against the Persian Gulf Airlines. We’ll separate fact from fiction.

Craig McNamara, Founder of the Center for Land-Based Learning, gives us some remarkably practical advice about living—and traveling—more sustainably. Then, Lial Jones, Executive Director of the Crocker Art Museum, explains some of its more unusual exhibitions and programs, including one on art and pain management. There’s all of this and more when Peter Greenberg broadcasts from Sacramento, California on Saturday, August 22, 2015.
