KPBS Midday Edition

KPBS Midday Edition is a daily radio news magazine keeping San Diego in the know on everything from politics to the arts. Midday Edition airs weekdays from noon to 1 p.m. and again from 8 to 9 p.m.

HEADS UP: The Midday team is on a brief hiatus. But don’t worry! We’ll be back. We’re taking some time to reimagine the show and work on ways to tell stories that reflect and serve all of our communities. In the meantime, the folks at BBC Newshour are holding our spot.
  • A study from UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography shows that Tijuana sewage isn’t just ending up in our water - it’s finding its way into the air we breathe. The study, conducted in 2019, found that air samples collected in Imperial Beach contained the same bacteria present in contaminated ocean water. Then, the Department of Veterans Affairs has been studying the effects of psychedelic drugs in treating PTSD, but government regulation and concerns over recreational drug use may stand in the way of better understanding the treatment method. Finally, San Diego Opera announced this week the sad news that a beloved colleague and ambassador for the opera, Nicolas Reveles died of pancreatic cancer. We remember Reveles and talk about his newest work, “Ghosts,” which will have its world premiere at San Diego Opera in April.
