Oildale Native Gerald Haslam Coined The Phrase ‘The Other California’ – He Tells Us Why

We’ve told you about a podcast we’re hoping to roll out sometime next year called The Other California. It will take a more intimate look at the part of the state where we live, the area that is often considered fly-over or drive-through territory. The phrase comes from a book of essays on the Central Valley by the well-known author and Oildale native Gerald Haslam. I recently caught up with Haslam to find out why he called the book, The Other California: The Great Central Valley in Life and Letters. In the interview, he talks about why this region is different from other parts of the state.
