District-based City elections

Councilmember Dan Carson helps us understand WHY the City is changing to District-based elections and WHAT people still have an opportunity to weigh in on (the boundary lines of the districts) and WHEN this process will finish (November 2019).  This isterview cleared up a lot of false rumors that I had heard flying around and convinced me of the urgency of this change. 

NOW is the time to make any suggestions about districting, if you are interested in the topic.

Thanks to Dan Carson for another clarifying interview.

That's Father Murphy

Msgr James Murphy is both a Catholic priest and an historian.  Together these passions have led to his writing “Saints and Sinners in the Cristero War: Stories of Martyrdom from Mexico”.  The book recounts the lives of eight people who were involved in a Catholic rebellion against the Mexican Revolution.  In today's interview, Father Murphy gives us the general history of that time in Mexico and explains how the political changes effected (and were affected by) the Catholic church. This is the setting in which to place his stories.

That's John Natsoulas

Todays' guest, John Natsoulas, tells us about "Davis Transmedia Art Walk Tours" and other art in and around Davis.  The Art Walk is a unique method of interacting with the murals, scultures, and other art pieces in Davis.  Each piece has a scannable identifier which allows each viewer to use their phone/tablet to learn more about the work (sometimes including a video of the artist is process) and allows the viewer to leave comments for the artist as well.

John has been involved in many many things in Davis, where he grew up and has lived a full life.  In addition to running his art gallery, John has been active in getting art in public places -- such as many of the mosaics in downtown -- and more recently in adding publicly-viewable murals to private buildings.
