Nice addition to the local scene. Shows that there is more to downtown than just the Chargers. Yes I do know that Barrio Logan is not downtown but the relationship is symbiotic.
By far the most interesting SD podcast I've heard. Keep up the great work!!
Great insights into arts, culture, and communities
I had a feeling this podcast was going to exceed my (already high) expectations, and I was right. I’m a sucker for information about arts and culture. Kinsee Morlan and the rest of the folks behind Culturecast took it to another level by integrating a neighborhood focus to tell a larger story. It’s one thing to simply cover an interesting artist or event. Culturecast explores the communities that nurture artistic expression, and make it necessary and worthwhile. This is a great listen, highly recommended.
