East Side, West Side, All Around the Town
Talk of the Bay, with Chris Krohn, 5-6 PM, Tuesday, December 13th, on KSQD
On Part I of this Tuesday’s show,we take a ride with the number one bicycle taxi guy in Santa Cruz, Aidan Hosler of Rainbow Rickshaw. How does he make a paycheck in Surf City? Who does are his passengers? And, how much do local politics come into play in the bike taxi business? Come along for the ride with your host Chris Krohn as he digs deep into bike taxi do’s and don’t’s.
During Part II, we talk with Nadia Lucia Peralta of the group Protect East Meadow. This discussion centers around the land and living struggles inherent in the UCSC campus. It is a battle over where to build and not build that continues to unfold within “The City on a Hill.” This fight involves more than just housing; Protect East Meadow is seeking a seat at the table for the indigenous people of the Monterey Bay Region. Another campus confrontation that the UCSC administration does not relish.
