Fresno! Let's keep calm. The heat will end. The fires will be put out. The sky will soon be less orange.

While we wait for that, let's talk about the firestorm that followed a Clovis girl moving to a loft in Downtown Fresno. Followed by a Fresno City Council acting like mom is not in the room, during meetings. We also cover some Fresno places we miss, Fresno's homeless "problem", wonder if we should care that Granville Homes is running a news website, play some new stuff from Patrick Contreras and a lot more Fresnooooo!

Thanks for listening!

It's Fresno. It's June. Let's get to talking.

Josh explains why the Fresno Bee laid-off some important people last month and how he and the Fresno Bee competes in today's click-bait world. Also look out for a good Fresno music discussion, what is this viral thing that goes along with Crackle Barrel and if it's a good thing that it is coming to Fresno. The Highway 99 corridor and how people from Los Angeles perceive Fresno. Is it bad that Amazon and Ulta are coming to Fresno? Plus, much more Fresno talking and plugging.

Band Of The Episode: Sparklejet.

Hello and welcome back to our little Fresno podcast, Flowing With Famous!

Our Fresno culture for February 2017 includes an evaluation of how Mayor Lee Brand has done so far, we check in with Fulton Mall Street to see how it's going, talk about Fresno's beer scene and a podcast we were on (and forgot to mention Mikey being on Spanspek).

We take music break with Band Of The Episode, John Clifton Blues Band. Talk about all the music festivals coming to Fresno and remind ourselves that Clovis Unified is still, in some ways, living in the 1930s.

Thanks for listening!

This month of the show, we welcome the Fresno heat and discuss many Fresno things:

  • How about that Fulton Mall? You know we can't have an episode without a Fulton Street Mall talk. Right now everything is jacked up on Fulton and businesses are struggling, can they hold out until next year? Will the change in business on Fulton be dramatic, once it's completed.
  • Fresno also became President hopeful central for a couple weeks there and we break down Bill's, Hilary's, Bernie's and Donald Trump's visits to town.
  • The race to be Fresno's next Mayor is getting focused and we try to figure out if these guys will be good for Fresno.
  • An old Fresno business changing over to sex shop and the city is trying to stop it.
  • Full Circle continues with new owners.
  • Darius Assemi and Granville seem to have issues with Ashley Swearengin and thinks Fresno should be Clovis.
Also, we have a nice music break from Amoret!!
