Customer Reviews

Interesting Topics and Varying POVs

LA focused talk about design and infrastructure. It generally delves into current issues, trying to breakdown different viewpoints and motivations. Surprised by the negative comments here, bc I think the topics and content are great. It is helpful for navigating the complexities of such a sprawling city. This has yet to become the habitual listening some of my other fav podcasts have, but I've enjoyed every episode I've listened to.

A nice cultural cross-section of L.A.

A clever and informative way of telling the story of a young major city. Bravo.

Strange hosting for this type of podcast

It's...not what I expected. It feels like the host is angling for sensational takes on "hot" design "issues," but that is probably an inaccurate and unfair perception on my part. The reason I have that perception is a simple fact however: the host scatters emphasis across sentences like a local news anchor and asks questions with that peculiar tone of winking incredulity you hear on local news. I couldn't get through more than one episode without becoming annoyed and disinterested.
