Pandemic Precipitates New Podcast
Speaking of stories, the Santa Barbara Public Library is launching its own virtual archive of aural adventures via a new podcast called Cover to Cover. Hosted by Norma Cervantes and Jace Turner – a library administrator and its Community Relations Librarian, respectively – the podcast is set to explore the spirit of Santa Barbara through the voices, stories, and personalities of the greater community. The premiere episode features Jason Harris, Santa Barbara’s first Economic Development Manager, who talks about his early impressions of Santa Barbara, the vitality of the closed-to-traffic State Street during the pandemic, spending weekends on the Westside, and which books reside by his bedside.
