In honor of International Women's Day in March 2019, editor Lauren Katzenberg compiled "40 Stories from Women About Life in the Military."

Living With Animals

The Museum of Man in Balboa Park Living With Animals exhibit opened in March 2017. It explores the different relationships humans have with all kinds of animals. Tenley and Elu collaborated with San Diego writers, sound editors, and visual artists on a video booth for the exhibit. If you check out the exhibit, be sure to step into the yellow tent to listen to the stories.
