On Wednesday, 13 CapRadio board members resigned, following a devastating audit conducted by the California State University system. CapRadio is an auxiliary of Sacramento State, which holds the NPR-member station’s license. Sac State President Luke Wood discusses CapRadio’s financial mismanagement, Sac State’s oversight, as well as how the public radio station and university move forward.

Navigating Healthcare as a Trans Person

CapRadio’s new podcast This Is What It Feels Like puts listeners in the shoes of everyday people at the center of issues often overlooked or politicized by society. The first episode explores navigating healthcare as a trans person. On Insight, we explore gender affirming care. Liza Thantranon is regional Counsel for Health at Legal Services of Northern California, and has been working with Sacramento’s Gender Health Center as a community partner. Pediatric Endocrinologist Dr. Tandy Aye is the founder and medical director of the Stanford Pediatric and Adolescent Gender Clinic.

Heart of Gold Gravel Race

The Heart of Gold Race & Festival in Nevada City is a unique biking event that is more than just a race.  While competitors whip around a gravel course and festival goers enjoy the great food and drink, the winners of this annual event are local organizations focused on addressing youth mental wellness in Nevada County.  Joining us on Insight to talk about the event and the mental health needs of their community are race participant and Nevada County Supervisor, Hardy Bullock, and Jennifer Singer, Executive Director of Bright Futures for Youth.
