EPISODE 57 – RODERICK HALL ON L.A. AS THE CITY OF THE FUTURE

In our 57th episode, we hear from Roderick D. Hall (@RoderickDHall1), formerly with Abundant Housing L.A. and now at Pacific Urbanism, a research firm for community planners in Los Angeles. Listeners will remember Roderick from the Fight for Housing, our third panel for Making Our Neighborhood: Redlining, Gentrification and Housing in East Hollywood. For our conversation, Roderick describes growing up in rural North Carolina, living on his own for the first time in Los Angeles in none other than MacArthur Park, why moms love Denzel Washington, and how a non-judgmental approach towards organizing is crucial for movement-makers everywhere.
