Episode #7: Jazz Age Los Angeles: Haberdashers and Hermetic Rites

Tune in to Episode Seven of the Esotouric podcast as we talk with Maja D’Aoust, the White Witch of Los Angeles, about the Southland’s occult legacy, the real meaning of Karma, and the incredible library at Manly P. Hall’s Philosophical Research Society in Los Feliz. We’ll also talk with Marc Chevalier about the life and times of James Oviatt, his
eponymous building, how he helped bring the Jazz Age to Downtown Los Angeles, and of course, all those lovely suits.

All this, plus cultural musings as Kim & Richard usher in the week of March 4th, 2013.
