Growth in Silicon Valley: economic gains, advocates for fatness and Burning Man expansion [PODCAST]

This week, Peninsula Report brings you stories about growth: Silicon Valley gains momentum in the marketplace, "fat activists" question the healthy body and Burning Man works with entrepreneurs to globally expand.

This week on the Peninsula Report radio show, Alexei Koseff brings us news from the 2013 State of the Valley Conference in San Jose. Regional identity in Silicon Valley and San Francisco is changing, and highly reported economic gains aren’t reaching every citizen.

Camira Powell talks bodies. Do “fat activists,” or advocates for societal acceptance of obesity, have a solution for women struggling to attain the perfect healthy body?

And we revisit Xandra Clark’s reporting on how Burning Man is changing: Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are helping to bring the principles of the desert festival to a global audience.
