On the Peninsula Report radio show, Vignesh Ramachandran tells us about a rather chic event that happened at Stanford: the university’s very own version of the TED talks.

Jessica Parks reports on a network of earthquake sensors operating on ordinary people’s personal computers, and how you can get involved.

Holly Moeller talks about little known noise pollution that is damaging to local wildlife, and Stanford Daily editor Margaret Rawson takes a break from her newsroom to give us this week’s top campus news.

Stanford alumna Mai El-Sadany reports from Washington D.C. on Egypt’s election, and we end out the hour with a newscast of the day’s headlines from Marcella De Laurentiis.

Tune in 3-4 p.m. each Friday at 90.1 KZSU for news from Stanford and beyond.

Listen live to KZSU (FM 90.1) or stream the Peninsula Report online every Friday from 3-4 p.m.
