North Coast Conversations

North Coast Conversations is a weekly segment where we meet with local community members developing ways to improve the quality of life on the north coast.

  • Thank you for listening to North Coast Conversations on KHSU! I’m proud to announce that NCC is now in a new, longer time slot so that the people we interview have more time to talk about the incredible work that they do! This is the first episode that utilizes our longer format.This week, we are revisiting the Homeless in Humboldt documentary crew as they prepare to release the second episode in their series. Homeless in Humboldt has been filming and interviewing local homeless citizens for nearly two years now, and in that time they have shed more light on situations that so many of our houseless neighbors endure on a daily basis, and how the pandemic has exacerbated those problems.The first episode of Homeless in Humboldt focused on an individual named JP and his struggles to find stability in a pandemic world, and can be watched on Youtube here.I met with the 4 person crew consisting of Cal Poly Humboldt students and graduates Valentina Dimas, Skylar Gaven, Gabe Kim, and Rachel Marty via zoom as they were finishing editing the second installment of their series. In this episode, JP has found stable housing after nearly 3 years of living on the streets of Eureka. Part 2 of JP’s story premiered at the Minor Theater May 11th and can now be viewed here.To learn more about the series, please visit their website at and consider donating to their GoFundMe which will support both the documentary crew and the people that they interview. While this episode concludes the JP arc, the homeless in Humboldt crew is far from finished. Episode 3 will feature a new couple’ story and will be premiering later this summer.Thank you for listening and stay tuned for more episodes of North Coast Conversations as we explore more of what the North Coast has to offer.
