This podcast is dedicated to stimulating healthy dialogue surrounding topics of local policy in the North County San Diego region. Join us weekly as we interview political leaders, analysts, professionals, and leading community members on major issues facing our region such as homelessness, housing density, and the upcoming elections. Stay Classy San Diego was launched by freelance journalist Steve Wyer, who has worked with The Coast News and The North Coast Current locally, among other newspapers. The goal of this program is to provide a platform for the free exchange of ideas from all sides of the political aisle, including views that some may find controversial or even distasteful. As the moderator, Steve works to facilitate the flow of civil dialogue during these conversations while keeping a nonpartisan unbiased stance on the issues being discussed. The views expressed in the podcast are those of the guests themselves and do not necessarily reflect the views of Steve or of The Coast News. Guests on the program are expected to abide by the following ground rules: 1) No personal attacks, ad hominems, or insults of any kind towards other guests on the podcast are allowed. 2) Guests are expected to treat each other at all times in a courteous, respectful, and upstanding manner. Inappropriate behavior of any kind will not be tolerated, and the host reserves the right to ask individuals who fail to adhere to these standards to leave the studio.3) Anything said on the podcast is fair for publicization; that is we will not retroactively edit the podcast on request to remove any statements that were made. Once something is said, it is said, and it is 100% up to our discretion (the hosts) as to how we choose to edit and publish podcast episodes. We also reserve the right not to publish content, again at our discretion. 4) Guests are expected to stay on topic, be truthful, and be fully transparent in their answers. 5) Guests are expected to wait their turn to speak as called upon by the moderator and to not interrupt other guests during the conversation. Cell phones and other potential sources of disruption should be silenced before the start of the podcast. 6) Any question, within the standards of basic propriety, is fair game to be asked by the host. 7) The host retains the right to end the discussion at any time. 8) Guests will not be given questions in advance of the podcast recording and should come prepared to speak on any relevant topic. The podcast is in partnership with The Coast News and is currently sponsored by Max Lux Media and Barn Time productions, both Encinitas-based production entities.
