First on this week’s Poodle Radio, Colin Marshall talks to Brandon Fastman, UCSB graduate student and author of this week’s cover story, on the challenges of generating green energy in Santa Barbara County. Then, Rob Fredericks and Veronica Loza from the Santa Barbara Housing Authority pay a visit to talk about Artisan Court, their newly opened housing development for post-foster care youth and low-income Santa Barbara downtown workers. Finally, for part two of Poodle Radio’s Vintners’ Festival preview, Santa Barbara County Vintners’ Association Executive Director Jim Fiolek brings in winemaker and Vintners’ Association President Steve Fennell for a return visit to the studio.

Music this week, organized by the Indy’s pop culture editor, Aly Comingore, includes tracks from AgesandAges, The Morning Benders, and Those Darlins, all of whom are scheduled to play Santa Barbara soon. You can tune in to Poodle Radio live every Thursday morning from 8-9 a.m. on KCSB, 91.9 FM in Santa Barbara or on KCSB’s webcast at
