Talk of the Bay
Talk of the Bay is committed to covering political, social, and cultural topics from around the Monterey Bay.

We also consider national and international issues, their impact on the central coast, and local responses. We tackle perennial topics like housing, homelessness, transportation, education, and more from a new angle.
