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 week an appeals court ruling by a normally liberal court stated that the 2nd amendment did allow for the open carry of firearms.  This set some thoughts off as you will hear in this week's episode.  Gun culture surrounded us growing up in the 80s, from tv to video games. As we got older the nature of that culture evolved to include not just the imaginary, but the real.  It seems like everyday there is another headline about a shooting involving people from all walks of life.  And so we ask ourselves, who gets to carry and who doesn't because while a court may say yes, the headlines show a different story.
