End of Year

End of Year

Join us as we wrap up 2016 in the last episode of this semester’s North Gate Radio. We faced an onslaught of surprises this year: Zika virus was declared a WHO emergency; Brexit changed the face of the EU; David Bowie died; a domestic terrorist incident lead to the deaths of 49 at an Orlando gay bar; an Oakland warehouse fire killed 36. Donald Trump was elected President-Elect of the United States. But there were some good surprises. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Domoic acid didn’t disrupt this year’s Dungeness crab season. Stranger Things. Well, maybe it was a rough year. We’re hear to bring you the best and worst, and will be for semesters to come.

This week, the North Gate Radio team takes on 2016. We have stories on Planned Parenthood, Tippi Hedren, the Zika virus, and more. Cheers to a new year!
