EPISODE 36 – GARCETTIVILLE

In our 36th episode, listeners meet Lettwrs, a graphic designer based in Koreatown who just helped launch Garcettiville, a new website and initiative documenting Eric Garcetti’s broken promises as mayor of Los Angeles over the last seven years. We talk about how social media has utterly transformed the way in which communities engage with politics, especially in forms and on a scale that the political establishment couldn’t ever have anticipated, as well as mutual aid work for unhoused folks with and by Ktown For All, and how listeners can support such work or related initiatives in Los Angeles. Follow Ktown For All at @KtownforAll. And find Lettwrs’ graphic design work at @cantypelettwrs.

EPISODE 10 – THE THINK FARM

In our tenth episode, we sit down with Helen Kim of THE THINK FARM, the design studio whose flyers promoted our Back 2 School events beyond expectation. We discuss how gentrification of our neighborhood brought us together, the way “intimate” storytelling in Los Angeles is growing, creative collaborations in Koreatown, and more.
