Ears on Art celebrates its 19th anniversary with highlights from the archives. On April 4, we will feature some of our out-of-area guests, and April 11, we will showcase a few of the local artists who have joined us in conversation about their art. This month we begin a shorter format for the show. This is part of the revamping of the hour-long "Issues and Ideas," which will now feature an increased variety of segments.

On this week's Issues and Ideas we'll get some Ears on Art. Crissa Hewitt dives into the work of famed sculptor Francisco Zúñiga through an interview with his son who has spent years cataloging and documenting his father's work. We'll also explore Central Coast U.S. army base Fort Hunter Liggett through two stories from Journeys of Discovery's Tom Wilmer and KCBX's news director Greta Mart. We'll also learn about what some men at a local university are doing to support the #MeToo movement. And KCBX's Rachel Duchak gets some world travel tips, from Bangkok, Thailand!
