The Indy is the Santa Barbara Independent’s podcast, hosted by Molly McAnany. On this week’s episode, we speak with Santa Barbara County supervisors Gregg Hart and Joan Hartmann about this month’s 3-2 vote against ExxonMobil’s offshore oil trucking proposal. We dissect the potential impact of phasing out oil on the local job sector, decommissioning offshore platforms, and the push toward renewable energy. Then we talk to Nadia Abushanab from the Santa Barbara County Action Network (SBCAN) about misperceptions regarding the oil industry and the Santa Barbara environmental rights coalitions.
