In this week's episode Matt and Rod talk with Miguel Guillen, the creator of the @stocktonca Instagram account. 

They also talk about this weekend's Asparagus Festival and the return of Johnny Milford to the airwaves!

Miguel Guillen

In 2012, Miguel started an Instagram account as @stocktonca. He posted one picture and then ignored it for a while. What he didn't realize then was that he was starting to build a community on Instagram, the social media app and website where users share photos and short videos.

The @stocktonca account on Instagram has over 12,000 followers and features photos with the hashtags #stocktonca and #IGersStockton.

Miguel recently helped organize Stockton's second Instameet, where Instagram users got together at the Stockton Arena

Listener Feedback

Gabriel wrote to us in response to our previous discussion about what we were reading. It's good to know that the Nook offers support for sharing ebooks. Thanks for sharing your feedback!


Back to School

It's that time of year again, all of our local school districts are back in session. Matt and Susan discuss back-to-school as each of them have a high school freshman daughter (which should be easy by now since each of them already had a daughter graduate high school).
