April 18 marks the centennial of one of America's greatest catastrophes, the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. In the second of a two-part report on the legacy of the quake and its fiery aftermath, independent producer Jesse Boggs and the Hearing Voices radio project offer a look at the almost-immediate campaign to put a positive spin on the disaster.
