This week on Valley Edition reporter Ezra David Romero takes a look at Fresno's tech boom, Grist writer Nathanael Johnson and Robert Rocha of Madera based Enzo Olive Oil chime in on whether olive oil will be the oil in the next California oil boom, and host Joe Moore speaks with Marshall Tuck who is running for state superintendent of public instruction.

Also on the program we talk about the phenomenon called #DroughtShaming used on social media to point out the ill use of water. Fresno citizen Jefferson Beavers, Mark Standriff with the City of Fresno and Felicia Marcus with the State Water resources board join the conversation.
