This week’s Sunday issue dances among free speech, marijuana and pedestrian culture in Berkeley.

Weekender contributor Francesca Munsayac asks a Holocaust survivor about her point of view regarding free speech, almost preparing our readers for what would have been Milo Yiannopoulos’ ‘Free Speech Week.’ Senior staff writer Robert Tooke interviews a local author about her new book on starting one’s own marijuana business.

Staff writer Molly Nolan spotlights both the health benefits and dangers of walking to class in Berkeley, providing a new perspective on such a mundane phenomenon.

After receiving an email about choosing a major from the campus, staff writer Alejandra Dechet begins to question whether or not she is ready to make a decision about her major. Staff writer Bailey Dunn, on the other hand, thinks back to a time when her Uber driver inspired her to continue with her love for literature.

We invite you to take a seat, grab a cup of tea and relax for your first weekend of this fall.
