Is Nevada ready for a large earthquake? What does regenerative ranching in rural Nevada look like? And what’s the latest news on COVID-19, omicron, testing shortages?

This week, host Joey Lovato talks with State Geologist Jim Faulds and State Hazard Mitigation Officer Janell Woodward about earthquakes after a rather shaky 2021. While there are lots of faults in and around Nevada that could cause large earthquakes we focus on one area, the Walker Lane. After that, reporter Jazmin Orozco Rodriguez and photographer David Calvert talk about their story on an Elko family engaged in regenerative ranching in rural Nevada. At the end of the episode, reporter Tabitha Mueller and Joey interview Dr. Mark Pandori, director of the Nevada State Public Health Lab, about the omicron variant, testing shortages and more.
