Oroville, A History of Immigration Law, and A Valentine’s Day Rant

On today’s show, we discuss the Oroville dam spillway with Jay Lund (professor of civil and environmental engineering at UC Davis and director of the Center for Watershed Sciences) and Laura Feinstein (senior research associate at the Pacific Institute, a global water think tank). 

We also talk to Jean Felzer (professor of Asian studies and English at the University of Delaware) and Gabriel Jack Chin (professor of law at UC Davis) about Chae Chan Ping, the Chinese Exclusion Act, and immigration law in the United States.

Happy Valentine’s Day! To close out the show, we bring you a reminder to have love for everyone (perhaps even Trump) from Scooper Nisker.
