On Issues & Ideas, we take a look at the labor rights of farm workers in "Beyond the Furrows", KCBX's 12 part series. Car Week in Monterey is this week, and 85 thousand visitors are expected, adding 67 million dollars to the local economy. Dr. Allen Radner, the chief medical officer at Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System, talks about the continued threat of the Delta Variant in Monterey County. You’ll hear from local earthquake experts about the probability of “The Big One”, and it's potential damage to the Central Coast. On this week’s Nonprofit Story, you’ll hear from Amy Lewis of ECHO, about their 20 years of helping unhoused individuals. And finally, you’ll hear from SLO County's 1st District Supervisor John Peschong on redistricting.
