Call It What You Will Salinas


Welcome to Call It What You Will.  This is a show that focuses on politics and social issues here in Salinas and our neighboring communities.  We aim to provide interviews that give listeners a more in-depth perspective on local leaders in government and the community.  We are not limited by the word count of a newspaper article or the time constraints of a tv news report.  We are simply some people sitting at a table having a conversation that we hope you find interesting and most of all, informative.  

Our show usually has two formats.  When we have a guest, our show focuses on having those conversations that we hope bring you a better understanding of the politics and social issues of our community.  When we don't have a guest, we tend to just sit around the table and have those random conversations about politics that happen when one sits at a bar sharing a few drinks with friends.

This episode is recorded on the road as Dom travels with local community group, Safe Ag Safe Schools (SASS), to Sacramento to join organizations from all over California to call for the ban of the pesticide, chlorpyrifos.  Chlorpyrifos was on the brink of being banned across the United States by the EPA under the Obama Administration.  However, with the new administration in power, the use of chlorpyrifos is still being allowed.  Hear from SASS organizer Lucia Calderon, co-director Mark Weller, and many of the local activists that came from Salinas, Watsonville, Greenfield, and Santa Cruz to join a demonstration of 250+ people in our state capital.  Listen in and learn about a group that is working to make our local community safer.
