Poodle Radio on Promoting Civil Discourse and Latino Arts

January 4, 2010


First on this week’s Poodle Radio, it’s a conversation about bringing a new forum for civil discourse on issues that matter to Santa Barbara with Ted Tedesco, founder of the Santa Barbara Institute on World Affairs. Tired of the name-calling and ideological tribalism in the mainstream media, Tedesco, a former city manager and American Airlines executive, figured he could do better. Tedesco and the Santa Barbara Institute on World Affairs were the subjects of a recent article in the Indy by Senior Editor Matt Kettmann.

Then, Indy reporter and KCSB News Director Cathy Murrillo discusses her cover story on Viva el Arte, the program that has brought musical and dance performances to the Latino community, from mariachi to rock, countywide and free of charge, for six years. She’s joined by Arts & Lectures program coordinator Cathy Oliverson and Isla Vista liaison Catherine Boyer. Tracks organized this week by Pop Culture Editor Aly Comingore include selections Brett Dennen, Lee Koch, and Ra Ra Riot. You can tune into Poodle Radio live every Tuesday morning from 8-9 a.m. on KCSB, 91.9 FM in Santa Barbara or on KCSB’s webcast at KCSB.org.
