    School-to-Career Day with Rob Devincenzi, Marin Independent Journal

    School-to-Career Day with Rob Devincenzi, Marin Independent Journal

    S1 | E27:  Today, we met Charley Conner, a San Marin High School student on School-to-Career Day.  She was shadowing with our friend, colleague and silent podcast partner, Rob Devincenzi, Publisher of the Marin IJ. 
    They came downstairs in the office building we share to see our podcasting studio in action.  It was an opportunity we couldn't pass up, since we've wanted to interview Rob, who prefers to stay out of the spotlight, all season long.  But, the newspaper man stayed true to his craft and he turned the tables around on us.  It seems that he got us to do most of the talking. 
    Stay tuned as Kalina and I share a little of our own experiences about how Marin works.
    Guests:  Rob Devincenzi, Marin Independent Journal and Charley Connor, San Marin High School

    S1 | E26:  In our final episode of Season 1, we continue inviting you, the listener, deeper into our process. 
    Today, you will hear our conversation with Ogi Teker, 4th generation owner of Istanbul Rug - and you'll hear it from start to finish, literally, as we hit the record button right when Ogi arrives. 
    Ogi and his father Esref opened their San Rafael store in 2019 right on 4th Street.  Now, one of three locations in the Bay Area since Ogi's dad moved the family from Turkey, when his son was only 10. 
    Join Kalina and I as we pull back the rug on how Marin works - the thing is, all we found were treasures.

    S1 | E25:  You just heard strong words from KPIX-TV sports broadcaster, Vern Glenn, from a recent story he did about the Play Marin program and its creator, Paul Austin.  We talked to Paul a few episodes ago about the success he has had teaching life lessons to kids of all colors through sports. 
    Back to Vern, you may know him from his current 11 year run at KPIX or previously as "Mr. Involvement", during his 22 years at KRON.  Vern started his career at a TV station near his hometown of Richmond, Virginia.  After 38 years in broadcasting, most of them while living in Marin and raising a family here, we wanted to ask him what it's like to be a public figure, a role model, and a Black man in this county that is 85% White. 
    Join us as Kalina and I continue our look at how Marin works.

    S1 | E22:  What do a pickup truck, a Valentines Day dance and an auto body shop have in common?  You'll have to meet the Llamas family to find out.  And what's funny is everyone in their auto body business has a different answer.   But, whatever the family stories are, one thing they all agree on is how the parts fit together, at home and at work - it starts with a strong foundation.  Join us for a conversation with a father-daughter duo whose Novato business, Carroceria Collision, needs no repair as we continue to navigate how Marin works.
