This month’s topics include:
NEW MEDIA BRINGING NEW LIFE TO COLD CASE
Things had been quiet in the 23-year-old Kristin Smart case when Chris Lambert started a podcast about it six months ago. Since the episodes began airing, there have been new search warrants and renewed media attention – as well as hordes of hooked listeners. We asked him to tell us about the journey, how it started and where it’s going next.
SPECIAL SERIES | HOMELESSNESS AT HOME
Continuing our multi-part series on homelessness is CAPSLO Deputy Director Grace McIntosh, who will put a face on the issue locally. She’ll share insights on the trends, fastest-growing populations and biggest challenges the CAPSLO team sees at 40 Prado, as well as the homeless center’s successes in the year since it opened.
A PEEK BEHIND THE PEARLY GATES OF ANGEL INVESTING
While most of us are familiar with angel investing, the details can seem a bit ethereal. But it’s crucial in funding local start-ups, often through competitions such as April’s AngelCon. Rolando Locci, who manages the AngelCon investing group, will provide a look at how it works and dispel some common myths.
HACKING THE FUTURE
300 students. 36 hours of non-stop hacking. So what exactly is it all about? We asked Selynna Sun, who founded the SLO Hacks hackathon, to share what these events do for participants – and the wider community – as well as her experience founding the local hackathon and traveling the world to participate in similar events.
OFFICE SPACE | TPS REPORTS EDITION
Business expansion is a key driver of economic activity, which means that space for business to expand is a key factor, too. We wanted to get a pulse on the office and industrial market in SLO County, so we turned to Steve McCarty of McCarty Davis Commercial Real Estate to give us the scoop.
10o YEARS OF GETTING OUT THE VOTE
2020 marks 100 years since women first won the right to vote, thanks in large measure to the League of Women Voters, which is also celebrating its centennial. We asked centennial committee co-chair Juliane McAdam to reflect not just on that momentous event but also the hard work that followed to expand that right.
WHEN THE ‘STANGS COME MARCHING IN
No question the hundred-year-old Cal Poly Mustang Band is beloved at home and on the road — and at Good Morning SLO of course. A contingent of the 220-member band will send us off with the post-game tune “Ride High” followed by an enthusiastic “Yay Poly.”
