PT 244: “The whole economy still isn’t open yet”

Paul and Reggie talk about the county’s unemployment rate in comparison to the rest of the state, where most of the jobs have gone, Kaweah Delta’s $21 million shortfall projected for the end of the year and what to do about it, and then Visalia’s optimistic plans for their July 3 independence celebration.
Also, they encourage listeners to find The Sun-Gazette’s new podcast, “de-PRESSED.” An ode to the need for local news, de-PRESSED is a three-part series where Paul talks with newsmen around the country about what happens to communities without a local news source, how we should fund it moving forward and then I talk to those who have a vision forward. So, find de-PRESSED on apple podcasts, spotify, tunein or where you get your podcasts.
