On this week’s Ally Radio, we head to Maui, where a wildfire has destroyed an historic town, killed dozens of people and destroyed homes and businesses. Our friends at KMUD Redwood Community Radio were able to connect with our radio friends in Maui to check in.

Then, we look at the world-famous El Capitan. This granite wall has attracted climbers from around the world for decades. But, what do we really know about ‘El Cap?’ We chat with our outdoors writer, Matt Johanson.

Listen to new episodes of Ally Radio every Friday at noon on KNVC, 95.1FM, Carson City Community Radio. The Sierra Nevada Ally is now available as a podcast! You can listen to the latest audio news reports from our team on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, or by searching “Sierra Nevada Ally” wherever you listen.
