Salinas Underground

We tell the story of the city we grew up with by interviewing the people that make it what it is: the business people, the musicians, the scholars, anyone that adds to the culture of Salinas.

Last week was the 38th annual Steinbeck Festival in Oldtown and were there with our microphones to find some stories! Cujo's schedule was not agreeing with the one for the podcast, so our social media manager Leah jumped on the mic and handled co-hosting duties. We ended up having a great conversation with three powerful women that were all working on helping farmworkers across the country. Lauri Coyle and Albertina Zarazua Padilla worked on a documentary called "Adios Amor" about Maria Moreno one of the first organizers of farmworkers in this country. Also joining us is Valentina from Lideres Campesinas, a national organization working for the rights of women farmworkers across the country.
