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.

Understaffed and overworked, members of the Salinas Fire Department are on pace to answer 14-15,000 calls this year.  Salinas is home to 76 firefighters at the taping of this episode and there is room for at least 9 more.  Being understaffed by 9 firefighters may not sound like a lot, but realize that Salinas Firefighters are sent to help in emergencies such as Hurricane Irma and wildfires here in California.  That puts on extra pressure for the firefighters here in town to pick up extra shifts week after week.  This week it's an honor to sit down with Josh Hostetter, President of the Salinas Firefighters Local 1270, and Martin Flores, Salinas born firefighter on 9/11.
