Tune in to Episode 22 of the Esotouric podcast as we talk with Southern California tile expert Brian Kaiser about the German exile culture that flourished amidst the lovely tiles of the Villa Aurora in Pacific Palisades. We’ll also visit with retired National Guard Lt. Col. Tom Lasser, to learn about the Joint Forces airbase in Los Alamitos and the influential role it played in Southern California’s aerospace legacy.

Plus discussion of how Welton Beckett’s Santa Monica Civic Auditorium has been saved from the wrecking ball, big news for Pasadena’s long-derelict Julia Morgan YWCA, and a glaring shortcoming in a pilot project for sidewalk dining and beautification in Downtown L.A.‘s historic core. All this and more, as Kim & Richard usher in the week of June 17th, 2013.
