The Petalumans

A short drive north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Sonoma County is a little town called Petaluma. Like many small towns, its residents have a sense of pride and love calling the town home. It is quaint, picturesque and all the other comforting adjectives. And it has its own unique set of town tensions and problems. But as any one knows, if you want to get to know a town, first you have to get to know its people.

The Petalumans is a radio show that documents a small town through a mix of interviews and location sound recordings. Each episode focuses on one person who lives and/or works in Petaluma. Their words, their stories, their lives.

The Petalumans airs live on Mondays at Noon. You can listen at KPCA.FM or locally in Petaluma at 103.3 FM.
