Siyamak Khorrami, host of the successful “California Insider” audio/video podcast and editor of the Southern California edition of The Epoch Times, explores the unprecedented mass exodus of California and its root cause in his new documentary, LEAVING CALIFORNIA: The Untold Story, an Epoch Original production. In the 70-minute feature-length film that premieres tomorrow (4/21) on, Khorrami takes viewers on an intimate journey of love, loss, tragedy and hope as residents face the prospect of leaving their beloved state. As a regular guest of the show, California Policy Center president and award-winning journalist Will Swaim says, “California’s bad ideas go national really fast. And if California fails, the United States fail.” This cautionary tale highlights crime, education, business environment, cost of living, environmental legislation and homelessness that are trending beyond California. “California Insider” is a twice weekly 30-minute podcast (Apple, etc.) and television show (in 30 million homes on NTD cable network). Episodes are also available on YouTube and Epoch TV. Launched in 2020, Khorrami focuses on the critical issues and current events of the wealthiest and most populated state in the nation.
