With the ever shifting boundaries between humans and wildlife in the Bay Area, the daily routine for many has it's challenges and rewards for all involved. Based on biological studies and direct experiences, we focus on a few of our favorite neighboring species who interact with us humans, and our way of life, in more ways than you may think. Seasonal cycles and winter storms bring extra-high "king tides" that can swamp coastal structures and habitats. Whats a coastal dweller to do? Take pictures! Its no joke: Educators from the California King Tides Initiative explain how citizen snapshots can be of real value to researchers and policy makers.
Take to the skies on board the zeppelin Eureka with pilot Andrea Deyling of Airship Ventures and get a crash-free course in lighter-than-air flight: Whats the difference between an airship, a blimp, and a zeppelin? How do they stay aloft? How high and how fast can they fly?

"Rat Creek is a broken tale, that trickles under the plastic welcome mats of a mobile home community..." In this special "b-side" edition of Driven, we continue our exploration of the work of Adam Ansell and the Gray Area Theater Ensemble. As the debut performance of "Rat Creek" nears, the actors are abuzz with joy and anxiety. When the actors finally enter the stage, Adam's work is done, and the play takes on a life of its own. Theater director Adam Ansell has developed a unique way of working during the 20 years that he's been running the Gray Area Ensemble in San Francisco. The doors are open to anyone who wants to participate, from experienced performers to those who have no experience in the arts. This uncommon group of ever-changing collaborators creates spellbinding, gorgeously dystopic theatrical spectacles which are both fantastical and very real. In this show, we enjoy a peek into the joyful and chaotic creation process of the "Rat Creek", The Gray Area Ensemble's latest work, which will be presented to the public at the Exit Theatre in San Francisco January 11-15th 2012.
