Hometown California, RCRC’s exciting new podcast series, launched this week. Hometown California tells the rural story through the eyes of those who live, work, and play in the rural communities of California.

In the first episode, our host, Paul A. Smith of RCRC, chats with Merced County Supervisor Daron McDaniel who currently serves as the Chair of the Rural County Representatives of California. McDaniel shares how, as a teenager from Illinois, he found himself in rural California and eventually elected to a seat on the Merced County Board of Supervisors. Listen in to hear his story and what it has been like to lead an association of the state’s 37 rural counties during a worldwide pandemic.
