2021 Jan 111h 4m 34s
Hello everyone and welcome to a special episode of Surviving L.A., a podcast hosted by three L.A. natives. We decided to record last minute touching upon what happened on Capital Hill last week. I know it has been a tough week but we are here for you! Don't hesitate, you can reach out to us on social media or on our email listed below. Disclosure, we encountered an issue with the recording so we had to cut out the last couple of minutes. The podcast does not end with our traditional outro speech.

Hello everyone and welcome to another episode of Surviving L.A., a podcast hosted by three L.A. natives.

Episode 1: Welcome to Surviving L.A.!
2020 Dec 0436m 58s
Hello everyone and welcome to the first episode of Surviving L.A., a podcast hosted by three L.A. natives. In our inaugural episode, we dive into on what motivated us to create this podcast and what it was like growing up in L.A. during the late 80's and 90's. During the recording of this episode, we discovered a great Instagram profile called This Side of Hoover, documenting gentrification and resilience along the East Hollywood/Silverlake border. I highly recommend you give them a follow, it does a better job of archiving and informing all of us of East Hollywood's past and present better than we ever could.
