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.

In this episode we speak with City Councilmember, Tony Barrera, and learn about his life as a Mexicano, an American, a community member, a family man, a city councilmember, a son, a father, and ultimately, as a person. He takes us through adventures from Sinaloa to San Francisco, until he eventually makes it to Salinas.  We follow his life through US-Mexico border towns and analyze the border between US born Chicanos and Mexican born immigrants. Through it all, his integrity about paying it forward and humility about positions of status and power tie it all together and bring us a message of community engagement and helping your neighbor.
