The Peninsula Report: Pagan ritual, candy from computers and a personal take on football

If you missed our May 1 episode of the Peninsula Report on KZSU Stanford 90.1 FM, join host Eliza Ridgeway in this podcast version.

We head up the Peninsula to Burlingame, for a story of peppermint, radioactive ooze and the unlikely life of a Silicon Valley resident who turned away from computers and toward: PEZ.

If you overheard the pounding of drums or the soft swish of flying flowers this weekend, that’s because Beltane was underway. The pagan holiday celebrating the summer’s start has become a Stanford institution for some students and alumni. Emily Bookstein reports.

And Anthony Wilkerson, Stanford Cardinal running back, created a reporting project on concussions this spring, and how they can seem inextricably linked to the heart of a game. Listen to his take on the choices he, and his teammates, have made.
