- An Environmental History of San Francisco's 1906 Earthquake
- By: Joanna L. Dyl
- Narrated by: Ginger White
- Length: 13 hrs and 11 mins

The disaster in all its elements - earthquake, fires, and recovery - profoundly disrupted the urban order and challenged San Francisco's perceived permanence. The crisis temporarily broke down spatial divisions of class and race and highlighted the contested terrain of urban nature in an era of widespread class conflict, simmering ethnic tensions, and controversial reform efforts.
