We visit the USA’s 13 coolest college towns! Also, see how you can win a free trip to this week’s travel destination, Puerto Vallarta, where you’ll find family adventures, foodie heaven and romantic getaways in one of Mexico’s top international destinations.

If you’re a fan of Saturday Night Live, (or SNL), then you won’t want to miss our interview with director Lisa D’Apolito who’s documentary film about the life of legendary comedian Gilda Radner Love. Gilda is coming soon to theaters featuring Melissa McCarthy, Lorne Michaels and Amy Poehler.

Later, we find out why the indie-feature Eighth Grade has Oscar buzz, and we talk to the film’s young, new star Elsie Fisher.

Plus, see how the new Phantom of the Opera musical literally made us jump!

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month. A captivating short-film, Father’s Challenge focues on a father of two – and illustrates a larger story of what can happen after being diagnosed with a rare blood cancer disease.

Sadly, September is also National Suicide Prevention Month. On average there are 123 suicides per day. We explore a new solution Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) that may provide an answer.

All this and more airing on this week’s episode of California Life with Heather Dawson.
