Paul Rivas interviews Cathy Murillo LIVE on being born in East L.A., growing up Mexican-American but not speaking Spanish, having a drug-dealer father who went to prison, getting accepted to Brown but going to UCSB because it was a nice place and her friends were going there, majoring in drama and never getting a bad review as an actor, writing for the Los Angeles Times and Ventura County Star, reporting on politics and the legal system for The Santa Barbara Independent, transitioning to different media by serving as News Director for KCSB 91.9 FM in Santa Barbara, being the first Latina elected to the Santa Barbara City Council, how to win an election, the Santa Barbara gang problem, her whole life having led up to her budding political career, donating to KCSB on-air in the studio during the annual fund drive, and how people can reach their goals. Music by The Double Zeros.

Real Gauchos is Thursdays 8am on KCSB 91.9 FM in Santa Barbara and kcsb.org.
