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.

Salinas is far from an affordable place to live and a big reason why is we have more people crammed into a city that doesn't have enough housing to hold everyone. Getting housing built, especially affordable housing, is never easy and so this week we speak to Matt Huerta, Salinas City Planning Commission member. Matt has long been involved in the process of building affordable housing going back to his days as the first Latino ASB President at UC Davis. This week is a longer interview because there is a lot to learn. Listen to Matt's experiences organizing at Davis as he becomes a student leader and begins his career studying, organizing, and implementing affordable housing from Silicon Valley to Salinas.
