Vintage Orange      Wednesday, September 28  2016

Do media perspectives effect the way history is recorded? Are immediate access and 24-hour news outlets effecting the way history unfolds?  Social Media gives everyone a voice, but is it getting a little noisy out there?

KUCI's own social media expert, Ryan Foland and I discuss how social media may be influencing history today.

For more social media wisdom, check out Ryan's show every Wednesday morning from 8-9am and

This week we travel outside of Orange County to Yosemite National Park and relive a three-day camping trip that changed American history.

My guest is Huntington Beach resident and author Chris Epting, who discusses his latest book "Teddy Roosevelt in California; The Whistle Stop Tour That Changed America." 

The book chronicles Roosevelt's 1903 trip to California and his camping excursion with conservationist John Muir.  A lover of the rugged outdoors, Roosevelt was humbled and impressed by the experience, which proved to be one of the most important sojourns in presidential history.
