Podcast Stockton is a blog and podcast all about the great life in Stockton, California, hosted by Matt Beckwith and Rod Villagomez.
We feature discussion on local issues, fun things to do in Stockton, technology and social media, listener comments, and interviews with local people.
In response to press coverage of our city that nearly always focused on the negative, Matt started Podcast Stockton in 2009, releasing the first episode in March. Choosing to focus on the positive side of Stockton, Matt sought to bring listeners local business reviews, commentary on local issues and interviews with local residents.
In November 2009, Rod came on-board as co-host of Podcast Stockton. Rod’s background in journalism and media along with his passion for Stockton made him a natural fit for the show.
Matt lives in Stockton with his wife Dawn and their two wonderful daughters. Matt has lived in Stockton since he was a child and is proud to still call it his home. You can learn more about Matt and his family by visiting his blog, following him on Twitter @PGHMatt and @PodcastStockton or his family podcast, Pizza Go Here. You can reach Matt by e-mailing email@example.com.
Rod is a native of Stockton and a graduate of Lincoln High School Class of ’94. After serving 10 years in the United States Army, Rod came back to Stockton to be close to his family, and ended up starting a new one himself. Since returning to Stockton, Rod has worked for KJOY, EPSN Radio, KWSX and can currently be heard on KWIN or as the on-field emcee for the Stockton Ports.
Matt and Rod both enjoy being active in the community and helping to showcase just how awesome Stockton is. If you’re looking for a dynamic duo to emcee your event in Stockton, give them a call.
We are always interested in your comments and suggestions for show topics and interviews. If you have a local event or news, we’d love to hear from you.
