Issues & Ideas: 'Your Own Backyard,' Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance and connecting seniors

Dec 8, 2020

On this week's edition of Issues & Ideas: Chris Lambert created the podcast "Your Own Backyard," about Kristin Smart and the nearly quarter-century-long unsolved case of her disappearance from San Luis Obispo's Cal Poly campus.

We speak with Lambert about what's new with the podcast and its genesis. State lawmakers reconvened Monday, and are expected to introduce a pair of bills aimed at extending eviction protections for Californians. There’s one industry in California that is seeing a resurgence because of the pandemic — hunting. Meals That Connect provides free noontime meals to seniors throughout San Luis Obispo County, and you’ll get an inside look at how the organization delivers. Also, you'll get a bit of history and an update on the Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance. Finally, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has moved online, providing recommendations for film lovers stuck at home.
