Issues & Ideas: Cal Poly fundraising, SLO County wine history and narcolepsy

May 9, 2019

On this week’s Issues and Ideas, we hear about a local mission to preserve the story of winemaking in our region. The Wine History Project of San Luis Obispo County is a museum without walls; we speak with Heather Muran and Libbie Agran about the effort to bring the county's wine history to life through unique exhibits. Also, learn more about the sleep disorder narcolepsy from local patient-activist Ashley Allen.

Later, we talk to Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong and Vice President Matthew Ewing about the university's newly-announced effort to hit the $700-million-dollar fundraising mark over the next two years, and how they plan to spend the money. And author Teri Kanefield discusses her new book on American activist, abolitionist, feminist and champion for women’s suffrage, Susan B. Anthony. And, finally, it’s Wildfire Preparedness Week in California; we learn about how one Central Coast community is getting ready, and what may have hindered preparedness in parts of the Sierra Nevada.
