Adamu Chan's powerful documentary transcends the COVID-19 pandemic, revealing resilience and hope inside San Quentin State Prison. As a formerly incarcerated person, Chan offers an insider's perspective on his journey to freedom while amplifying the voices of his community on both sides of the prison walls.

Join members of KALW's prison journalism training program and Uncuffed team to see the work of a contributing member of the San Quentin Media Center who is now working professionally as a filmmaker.

Friday, March 22, 6 pm - 7:15 pm

Tough Broad is a deeply researched exploration into the science and psychology of the outdoors, and our place in it as we age. Author Caroline Paul has always filled her life with adventure. Now in her late fifties, she expects this new stage of life to be every bit as invigorating and full of high adrenalin escapades as the last. But as she skateboards, paddles a SUP, or surfs in cold winter swell alongside many men her age, she sees fewer and fewer older women. Isn’t the outdoors a vital elixir? Shouldn’t adventure be something we pursue as we age? These are the questions she asks of the many women she interviews.

Caroline will be joined in conversation by Lauren Schiller. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Caroline Paul has written many books, including the New York Times bestseller The Gutsy Girl: Escapades for Your Life of Epic Adventure. She graduated from Stanford University, after which she became a San Francisco firefighter. Part of the San Francisco Writers Grotto, she writes, flies experimental gyrocopters, surfs, and reads as many books as possible.

Lauren Schiller is an award-winning audio producer, live event moderator, and co-author of It’s a Good Day to Change the World: Inspiration and Advice for a Feminist Future. She has created numerous podcasts and radio shows—including the nationally syndicated Inflection Point, about how women build power and lead change.

220 Montgomery is KALW's pop-up community events space in downtown San Francisco. It's part of the city's Vacant to Vibrant, bringing dynamic activators into previously empty storefronts to enliven the financial district. Since October, 2023, we've held town hall conversations, hosted live bands, run trivia nights, screened films, sung Karaoke, provided meals, and run this meaningful gathering space for people looking for information and entertainment. Come to 220 Montgomery to see and hear what the San Francisco Bay Area is all about.
