Airing Wednesday evenings at 7:30, North Coast Perspective provides highlights and in-depth discussion about the topics that matter to the north coast. Moderated by Julie Fulkerson.
What do you get when you add energy to genius and introduce humor into real world scenarios? Join us on North Coast Perspectives when Joan Schirle and Duane Flatmo reveal how they, as local icons, moved their art forms out into the world. Living behind the Redwood Curtain is an incubator of talent, not a barrier. Meet these two real life characters on North Coast Perspective.
What do pears and beans have in common? We learn how these basics are turned into unusual and valuable Humboldt County exports. Abe Stevens of Fortuna Distillery and Adam Dick of Dick Taylor Chocolates let us in on a few secrets.
Some believe that the local annual Marijuana production and sales could be in the billion dollar range. Is this realistic? How do we know? where does this money go? How does this impact affect our economy? our environment? our communities? Dr. Erick Eschker and Dr. Steven Hackett, economists, will shed some light on these questions.
Like it or not, Marijuana is the headline topic here locally and nationally. The environmental damage to land and property is reaching massive proportions, raising havoc in neighborhoods, stretching tax-dollars and stressing Humboldt county personnel. Sheriff Mike Downey and District Attorney Paul Gallegos address some of these issues.
Community Investing takes on new meaning on North Coast Perspectives. Humboldt County is richly diverse with business start-ups. One thing they all have in common... cash flow... and sometimes the need for capital investment. Our guests have years of experience in banking, investing, regional planning and crowd-sourcing. Watch and listen to learn about new possibilities to grow our economy. Patrick Cleary, Executive Director, Humboldt Area Foundation, Kathy Moxon, Director, Redwood Coast Rural Action, and Seth Geddes, Business Development Consultant specializing in Social Media Optimization & Branding.
