California Insider Podcast/TV Host Siyamak Khorrami 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, April 21 on LeavingCAmovie.com, 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.
“I have the opportunity to reach as many people possible about the true hardships in our state,” says Khorrami. “While their stories are frustrating and heartbreaking, it’s inspiring to witness the tenacity and will of the people who are surviving despite their circumstances. Hopefully others, after seeing this film, will be equally inspired to act and make change.”
