A Podcast About Sacramento, CA

Episode 4 - Let’s Talk About Kink

Most of us have been exposed to the idea of Kink and BDSM in some form or another. Sometimes through a sanitized Hollywood-esque version like 50 Shades of Gray. Or (more likely) through male centric, online pornography. Neither of which bear much resemblance to reality.

This month, we take a peak into (just a few) aspects of the Kink world. And what we found, might surprise you.

Trigger warning: In addition to explicit descriptions of Kink in practice, this episode also deals with trauma related to sexual assault.

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, you can seek help by calling the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE (4673).

Episode 3 - The Trouble with Local Politics

Sacramento’s 2018 Measure U was a divisive tax initiative that sparked heated debate, especially between those who support affordable housing, and those who oppose police brutality. And the reason why these two constituencies would find themselves at odds, dates back nearly 40 years.

Episdoe 1 - Urbs Indomita

Sacramento, California was first incorporated in 1850. That year would prove to be one of the young city's most harrowing; that it survived that year, let alone the remainder of the 1850's, is astonishing. Listen to the full story here. 

Correction - California was known as Alta-California in the pre-American period, not Nueva-California, as stated in the episode.
