Tune in to Episode Eleven of the Esotouric podcast as we visit with Vince Lugo, direct lineal descent of Don Antonio Maria Lugo, whose 19th century Spanish Land Grant helped define Southern California. Vince talks about his family and his father’s pride and joy, San Gabriel’s beloved–-and recently landmarked-–Monster Park. We’ll also talk with Darrell Kunitomi of the Los Angeles Times about the Chandler family’s legacy and how it is manifested and continues to evolve at the newspaper’s headquarters at 1st & Spring.

All this, plus cultural musings on the Hollywood Millenium and USC Village redevelopment plans, Mount Zion Cemetery in East Los Angeles, and our upcoming Literary Salon on Dashiell Hammett as Kim & Richard usher in the week of April 1st, 2013.
