Issues & Ideas: Gun safety, bringing bicycles to the developing world and avoiding employee burnout

Dec 9, 2019

On this week’s Issues and Ideas, we talk gun safety and gun violence. As of Monday, December 9, 2019, there have been been 393 mass shootings across the United States and more than 55,000 acts of gun violence. We speak with two Central Coast community members with differing perspectives on the issues surrounding gun violence, gun safety and the 2nd Amendment. Dr. Bill Pummer of the San Luis Obispo Sportsman Association and Morro Bay city councilmember and Women’s March SLO founder Dawn Addis join host Brian Reynolds in the KCBX studio.

Also, we talk World Bicycle Relief. On December 13th, San Luis Obispo bicycle component facility SRAM will host a fundraiser to support giving bicycles to those in need in the parts of the developing world. Correspondant Tom Wilmer sits down with design engineer Will King and director of design engineering Garrett Smith to talk about their passion for the project.

And, KCBX Morning Edition host Rachel Duchak meets with master trainer, speaker, author, and blogger Beth Kanter about her recent workshop aimed at helping business, especially short-staffed and overworked non-profit organizaions, identify and avoid employee burnout.
