Saul Aroha Nui Tea, who goes by “Salty,” has chosen to walk a different path than many of the other vendors of the Street Sense newspaper in Washington, D.C.

“The life I have chosen is a preparation in the Gospel of Peace and a full commitment to being willing to lay my life on the line as a pilgrim diplomat,” he said.

Salty expresses his peaceful activism through the stories he writes for Street Sense, his puppets, and music.

In this week’s episode of the “Look at This” podcast, Salty talks about his recent trip to California, how he learned to play guitar, and what inspired him to walk a path of peaceful activism. He also plays a new song written especially for the Street Sense podcast.
