Devastating power outages and destruction in Houston left by Hurricane Beryl again underscored the city’s inability to sufficiently fortify itself against extreme weather events worsened by climate change. This was the lowest level hurricane, a Category One, and yet it knocked out power to millions and left the nation’s fourth largest city reeling. Past horrific hurricanes, including Ike in 2008 and Harvey in 2017, made crystal clear that the city needed to bolster its infrastructure including expanding flood-plain protections, burying more power lines underground, and hardening its power grid. But those city, state and corporate efforts have repeatedly fallen short.

Faturday Omaha
Faturday Omaha takes you to the delicious places to eat all around Omaha and elsewhere. Hosts Dave Zorko, Sam Rocha, and TJ dig into a smorgasbord of conversations with the people in the restaurant industry who make tasty creations happen, all with friendship and a sense of humor.Dave "The Optimist and Extrovert" Zorko is an Omaha native who's enjoyed food from Omaha and beyond for a long time. He's always on the lookout for new places to try...and to feature on Faturday Omaha! Dave's been known to mention his dislike of mayo and sour cream (although good aiolis and quality mayos may be granted a pass).Sam "Burger Specialist and Realist" Rocha is the Destroyer of least any in his path. Sam and Dave have been, in his words, "putting the hurt on food together for a long time, way back to 'Burrito Day.'" He's been known to tell it like it is, and is thankful that his voice sounds different than Dave's or TJ's.TJ "Dissertation Scientist" is the best cook in the crew, has the largest vocabulary, and possesses the quantity of research to match. He may sound a lot like Dave, but he isn't. TJ likes to break things down, and while his palate lines up with Dave's quite often, TJ likes his dishes with some spice.So join the Faturday Omaha crew every Saturday at 2 p.m. and tune in if you're hungry!
