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, Dom sits down with Marcos Cabrera from the Monterey County Youth Media Project.  This was a 2 week course that local students could participate in to learn from industry professionals on how to become better journalists.  This free program for high school and college students brought in veteran journalists that were able to work with students on taking their journalism skills to a higher level.  This program was modeled on the Mosaic High School Journalism Workshop that was founded by San Jose Mercury reporter, Joe Rodriguez, in 1993.  One of the first graduates was Marcos Cabrera and now he and others are sharing what they know with young journalists from our community.  This episode takes us not only into the program the participated in, but also the work Marcos has done as a reporter and as an active member of the local arts, such as Baktun 12.  Dom tries not to go off on tangents, but Marcos brings a diverse experience to the mic, so that there were a lot of interesting conversational roads to go down when talking to Marcos.  Listen in and Call It What You Will Salinas!
