First on this week’s Poodle Radio, Colin Marshall talks to Indy writer Rebecca Bachman, who recently took a trip with the Santa Barbara Adventure Company to Santa Cruz Island’s legendary Painted Cave, the second-longest sea cave in the world. Along with her friend Sam, she gives a preview of her article about her experience soon to appear in the paper. Then, artist, musician, and entrepreneur Matthew McAvene discusses and plays songs from Macky World, his brand of “original stuff for original kids” a decade in the making. Finally, Indy reporter Chris Meager brings in Joe and Jean Pommier of the youth-focused Primo Boxing Club, whose recent financial hard times and possibilities for recovery make this week’s cover story.

Music this week, organized by Pop Culture Editor Aly Comingore, comes from artists like Liturgy, Warren G, and the Steve Miller Band, all of whom will play live in 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
