Our March 2014 story, “Nervous Energy,” on the potential impact of fracking on the food and water of California, appeared in Sunset Magazine, which has a monthly circulation of nearly 1.3 million. A companion radio piece was broadcast on Capital Public Radio to an audience of 470,000. In May of that year, FERN co-hosted a public panel discussion at Sunset Magazine, based on the story. The panel featured Barry Yeoman, the reporter who wrote the story; Amy Quinton, who produced the companion radio segment for; Paula Getzelman, a wine grower in Monterey County who was featured in the story; and Jayni Hein, the author of a report on the potential impact of fracking. Sam Fromartz, FERN’s editor-in-chief, moderated the panel.
