Ocean acidification and the Santa Barbara County Vintner’s Festival

This week on Poodle Radio, Colin Marshall host three live guests in the KCSB studio. First up is Indy reporter Ethan Stewart, here to discuss his cover story on ocean acidification. What is happening to the oceans, anyway? How much of it is likely to happen? What sort of research did he have to do before grasping the scientific and technological issues at hand, much less being able to explain them and express their possible consequences to the general reader?

In the program’s second segment, Colin talks to Senior Editor Matt Kettmann, who attended the Santa Barbara County Vintner’s Festival on Sunday, April 17 in Lompoc. Joined by winemaker Matt Brady of Jaffurs Wine Cellars, they discuss what’s to be found and tasted in the oenophilic avant-garde, the public’s ever strengthening-embrace of wine and wine culture and whether or not the influx of Sideways tourists is ever going to stop.
