coastal windageThe Coastside’s only live, call-in talk radio show, Coastal Windage features Coastside issues, hot topics, and live comments from Coastsiders in real time. Finally, the people of the Coastside have an opportunity to participate in their own community. Co-hosts Reuben TruthMaker and Livvy Streetwise provide a curated and encouraging forum for discussion while regaling listeners with their informed, entertaining, and insightful takes on a full spectrum of topics. This is not a platform for endless arguing and posturing. This is free-range thinking applied to local issues and daily lives with expansive, explorative discussion. No dogma, no entrenched positions, no talking points or political agendas — just two Coastsiders with the time and curiosity to dive deep and go anywhere.

To be on the show, listen from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Fridays and call 650.560.9851. You can also email Reuben and Livvy Streetwise with your comments at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Reuben TruthMaker

A 20-year resident of El Granada, Reuben TruthMaker is a dedicated husband, dad, coach, community volunteer, and creative professional. He is also a confirmed cynic, a notable futurist, and a passionate iconoclast forever seeking the greater good. Voted “Most Likely to Wear a Tin Foil Hat” during his senior year of high school, Truth loves a good conspiracy theory. Humor him.

Livvy Streetwise

Livvy and her family have lived here on the coast for 20 years and look forward to the next 20! She is an active volunteer in the community, occasional coach for her child's soccer team, and champion of good vibes. As a 'foil' to Reuben's cynicism, Livvy tries to look on the bright side of the issues, however, she has been known on many occasions, to break out the ol' soapbox, asking "why the heck can't we all just get along"???

Half Moon Bay coffee mugs (December 17, 2021)

Last month, Reuben practically lost his mind when he spent three hours with his family scouring the Coastside over the Thanksgiving weekend for a simple coffee mug emblazened with the legend "Half Moon Bay." Nary a one to be found. Since then, he has followed up several leads and ultimately ended up commissioning local artist Vanessa Lamascus of Coastal Custom Designs to make one for him to give to his sister. This week, Reuben followed up more leads provided by listeners and found HMB coffee mugs for sale at CVS in Strawflower Village and at Coastside Books on Main Street.
