Issues & Ideas: a multi-city suicide prevention summit and a student start-up


On this week’s episode of “Beyond the Furrows”, KCBX's Francisco Martinez introduces you to a farmworker who has spent much of her life giving back- to her kids, and to her community. In our new feature “Agenda Breakdown” Kim Bisheff explains the process used when a city’s mayor steps down. Also, from student reporters at UC Santa Barbara, you’ll learn about ways to coexist with the wildlife which is increasingly showing up in urban areas. In the “Nonprofit Story”, Jill Bolster-White of Transitions Mental Health Association talks about helping others with mental health struggles. And finally, on “Working Lunch” you’ll meet Walt Lafky, co-founder of the successful Cal Poly student start-up Harvestly.

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.
