Square Photography From its introduction in the 1920s via the clunky metal Rollei camera to Instagram, a photo sharing phone app, square photos have been around for a very long time. There's a certain intrigue to square photos that rectangular images lack, and here to talk with us about this mysterious beauty is Nicholas Wray, Sacramento photographer and Instagram extraordinaire, and Rebecca Gregg, lead curator of XII: Square  exhibit, a juried selection of square photographs at the Viewpoint Gallery in Sacramento.

Kushman by the Bottle Just in time for the end of the holidays, Capital Public Radio's resident wine expert (and occasional guest host) Rick Kushman joins us for the next installment of "Kushman by the Bottle," with advice on sparkling wines, which aren't just for celebrations.
 
Kushman's Sparkling Wine Recommendations:
La Marca Proseco ($15): This Italian sparkling is fresh, a little frothy, and seems a tiny bit sweet because of the fruit. A crowd pleaser.

Domaine Chandon Brut Classic and Domaine Carneros Taittinger Brut (Both $20-ish): Both are vibrant and clean, and both have mouthful of fruit. Of the two, I'm a bigger fan of the Domaine Carneros Brut and its soft, yeasty undertones.

Schramsberg Blanc de Bland ($30): This is the top American-owned sparkling wine house and this wine is rich and round but still bright.

Piper Heidsieck Champagne Brut ($34): Everything a genuine Champagne should be. It hits the sweet spot between the dry crispness of French sparklers and the richer fruit flavors Americans love.

Veuve Clicquot Brut ($42): This is a go-to Champagne for lots of people. Starts with apples, pears and hints of bread and yeast, then finishes crisp and clean.
