Valley Public Radio - Live Audio

Valley Edition - August 16, 2019 - Lost Hills Oil Fields, Leticia Perez, Miwuk Nation, Frank Bergon

 


 

This week on Valley Edition: we visit residents of a community surrounded by highways, agriculture fields, and oil and gas development. We learn about their grassroots efforts to find out whether those industries are polluting their air.

In Kern County, we look into the case of Supervisor Leticia Perez who faces two conflict of interest charges relating to her ties to the marijuana industry.  

We also speak to an author who knew the Marlboro Man; he was a real cowboy from the San Joaquin Valley.

Listen to those stories and more on the podcast above.
