Curiosity is exciting

I love hearing stories and cross sections of LA. Am I pretentious or precious show that lets everyone’s story unravel. Tony is a great interviewer and does a great job of getting to the core and heart of LA.

Neighborly conversations with incredible Angelenos

Really great conversations with an amazing cross section of the incredible individuals who call LA home. This is one of the very few endeavors that captures the true essence of Los Angeles. Tony is brilliant. I hope he doesn’t stop until he’s interviewed every last Angeleno.
