Conflicts on the Peninsula Report: Burning Man expansion, tree wars and UN Secretary General on Syria (PODCAST)

Peninsula Press reporters bring us stories of conflict: Burning Man seeks to expand globally through Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, and Cupertino residents fight with the city over public trees. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon gives us a glimpse into conflicts around the world.

On the Peninsula Report radio show, Peninsula Press reporter Xandra Clark tracks a changing phenomenon in the Nevada desert. Burning Man began as a refuge for the weird and off-beat, but it has become a Mecca for some of Silicon Valley’s upper crust. Young tech entrepreneurs aim to carry festival principles outside the burn, and the Burning Man organization sees innovation and expansion on the horizon.

Then, we hear highlights from UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s visit to Stanford campus in January. He took time to give a shout-out to Stanford’s Rose Bowl win before moving on to serious discussion of Syria, Mali and more.

Finally, Peninsula Press reporter Anna Li checks in with a story of trees and property lines in Cupertino. The city’s push to add greenery treads on property owners’ landscaping freedoms.
