3M ago
We are in our changing era, it's true, but some things will always stay the same, so here we are to talk about balls.    In this episode, we talk about Supervisor Phil Serna's recent Facebook rant & Councilmember Sean Loloee's laundry list of malfeasance. We love to see elected officials having a normal one all the time.    Thanks for listening, and, as always: defund the police.    Twitter: @ShanNDStevens & Gabe (who is not on the bird).   Support us on Patreon to help us keep the lights on: patreon.com/voicesrivercity   Sacramentans can he ..read more

Testing…testing…Spotify are you there? This is a duplicate episode (for Apple users) because our connection to Spotify went goodbyeler. Testing… That's right, the fellas are leaving. What does that mean? A freer and more incisive V:RC moving forward. But in the meantime, listen to the originals talk to the last of the initial crew about why it's time for them to shove off and let the show turn into its next, more free, iteration.

Prison guards aren’t labor +Sac County does nothing with $25 million for unhoused folks
Voices: River City
by VOICES: River City
5M ago
Today we're discussing a few hard truths: 1. It's time to cut back on California's prison guard "union" stranglehold on power. 2. Sacramento County doesn't really care about housing folks on the American River Parkway (or else they would have spent the $25 million the state gave them to provide housing). 3. El Dorado County appears to be cool with the new anti-semitic rhetoric coming from public commenters.

”How did we get here?” Harvey Dent (Thien Ho) sues Sacramento over homelessness
Voices: River City
by VOICES: River City
5M ago
Today we're discussing Sacramento County District Attorney Thien Ho's decision to sue the city of Sacramento on civil charges over leadership's approach to homelessness. It's notable to the V:RC crew that, in his dramatic press conference, Ho pulls language directly from Gotham City District Attorney Harvey Dent's language in the Batman classic, "The Dark Knight." We also take a moment to note that he's only acting out of a political impetus. If he weren't he wouldn't be attacking the only people in City Hall actually presenting options on homelessness. Yes, Ho's out here fighting for reaction ..read more

”Why do we say yes to everything you ask for?” - Mayor Steinberg to cops
Voices: River City
by VOICES: River City

Today we're discussing the Sacramento Police Department's waning credibility not just with the public, but now with crucial city officials. Why are they unable to provide a comprehensive inventory? What are they doing with all those tax dollars? No one appears to know, and not everyone is okay with that. We also discuss the pattern of nazis speaking during public comment at Sacramento City Hall. There's chatter of removing the public comment call-in functionality. Is that the way to go? Or can we consider something new? On a societal level, everything is devolving, of course, and we touch on t ..read more

Voices: River City
by VOICES: River City
6M ago
Today we're joined by Mia Roberts and Cory Copeland to discuss the ongoing strike authorization vote of the California Association of Professional Scientists (the state of California's unionized scientists), and how it fits into the larger trends of deepening solidarity throughout the burgeoning labor movement. Mia is a member of the CAPS board, a director at large, and Chair of the union's Member Action Committee. Cory joins us as a member of the Sacramento chapter of Democratic Socialists of America's Labor Committee, as well as its Solidarity Coordinator. Both are environmental scientists ..read more
