Episode #20: Sacred Sites & Sacred Streets

Tune in to Episode Twenty of the Esotouric podcast as we talk with Phyllis Comstock about Tomo-Kahni near Tehachapi, the historic winter home of the Kawaiisu tribe and one of the most remarkable parks in the California State Park system. We’ll also visit with artist Jori Johnson to discuss the “Sacred Streets” installation on downtown’s Skid Row, and its role in bringing the transformative power of art to this troubled neighborhood.

Plus we’ll discuss some good news and bad at the north end of Echo Park Lake, the title and artwork revealed for John Banville’s new Philip Marlowe novel, the “Jesus Saves” replica neon installed in BIOLA’s parking structure, Esotouric and 1947project folks featured in an ode to Angels Flight, historic preservation gets a boost in unincorporated L.A. County, an F. Scott Fitzgerald walking tour of West Hollywood, and a Jazz Age Los Angeles LAVA Sunday Salon. All this and more, as Kim & Richard usher in the week of June 3rd, 2013.
