Outside Lands Podcast Episode 390: Zakheim Murals at UCSF

The New-Deal era, Bernard Zakheim murals at UC San Francisco are in imminent danger of being destroyed. Portraying the history of medicine, ten frescoes are displayed in UC Hall, which will soon be demolished as plans for a new hospital and research center on the site take shape. This week's pod discusses the artists and how you can comment in favor of the murals' preservation.
