Humboldt Last Week is Humboldt County's award-winning weekly news podcast, plus new-alt-indie-radio.
Podcast listeners will hear "quick local stories" summarizing the previous week's top stories, delivering crucial community information that some may have missed or not yet heard.
Showing appreciation for the county's beauty, upsides, and potential, the program's mission is to prepare regular listeners with essential local information, conversation topics, and further reading topics.
In addition to the news podcast, listeners can discover new music. Humboldt Last Week Radio streams a new, alternative, and indie music radio station with high-quality audio and no commercials.
