Issues & Ideas: Off the Grid cooking, inclusive weddings, and the wildfire litigation industry

SLO Chamber of Commerce

In our series “Beyond the Furrows”, KCBX’s Francisco Martinez introduces us to a local farmworker who came to the U.S. from Oaxaca Mexico; her dream is to return to her home country someday. In “Playing With Food”, Father Ian explores the homestead of former SLO city council member Aaron Gomez to learn about Off the Grid cooking. In “Working Lunch”, you’ll meet local photographer and activist Ranoda Campbell, who specializes in LGBTQ and BIPOC weddings. Finally, the emerging wildfire litigation industry in California has become big business for attorneys in recent years.

Fr. Ian Delinger currently serves as Rector at St Stephen's Episcopal Church in San Luis Obispo. He was born on the Central Coast, and was raised in both rural western Nebraska and on the Central Coast. He studied Chemistry at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri. Then, he moved to the Silicon Valley where he was as a project manager in a consulting firm which specializes in environmental, health and safety issues for the semiconductor manufacturing industry and other high technology industries, followed by a couple of stints in corporate events management and marketing.
Francisco Martinez joined KCBX in January 2021 as a substitute staff announcer, then became a regular midday host, occasional reporter, and host of Citizen Sound — the alternative music show each Sunday night at 11:00 on KCBX. Francisco left KCBX to move back to the Bay Area in January 2022.
