Bonnie J. Rough

(First airdate: December 5, 2018) Bonnie J. Rough is a writer and speaker on sex education, parenting, gender, and the #MeToo movement.  She visits with Cris Wilson to tell the story of her new book Beyond Birds & Bees: Bringing Home a New Message to Our Kids about Sex, Love and Equality.


#125 Mauricio Cisneros, San Juan Tacqueria

(First airdate: December 4, 2018) LIVING THE AMERICAN DREAM. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Mauricio Cisneros, the owner of the San Juan Taqueria. Mauricio first came to the USA from Mexico as a teenage migrant worker. He started his culinary career as a bus boy in Sequim’s first Mexican restaurant. He slowly worked his way up the ladder and along the way became an American citizen. Many people know Mauricio as the owner of El Serape and Nifty Fifties in downtown Port Townsend. But he’s now the owner of the San Juan Taqueria near Kala Point. Despite the constant scramble for good staff, Mauricio loves the restaurant biz - he’s a people person who loves catering to his customers.
