My name is Ana Fernatt and I don't know anyone in LA.

With more than 4 million people bumping up against each other, how is is possible to feel so alone and isolated?

Each week, I sit down with a Los Angeles resident to connect, talk about our lives and what got us to where we are today.

It's also a show about connection in a larger sense, because each guest introduces me to the following week's guest. As the week's progress, it'll filter up a chain on people who can all be linked back to each other through who they know.

    Meet Reuben Bresler

    Meet Reuben Bresler, professional DnD Dungeon Master for The Broken Pact, former professional Poker player and voice actor. In this episode, we talk about how to read body language and what our special skills are for the Apocalypse...little did we know how relevant that would be! About The Show: LA is a city of 4 million spread over 503 miles, 114 neighborhoods and can take over an hour to get from one side to the other. With that many people bumping up against each other, how is it possible to feel alone and isolated. It's a city of paradox: dreams and heartbreak. Lifelong locals and those just coming in for a shot. Each week, I sit down with a Los Angeles resident to connect. Talk about our lives and what got us to where we are today. Talking. What does it mean for two people to get to know each other? It's also a show about connection in the larger sense, because each guest introduces me to the following week's guest. And as the weeks progress, it'll filter up a chain of people who can all be linked back to each other through who they know. That person we pass in the street, get behind at the grocery store, sit next to at the bar. They are all more connected to us than we may realize at first glance. A couple handshakes away...or, for the bold, maybe just one. I'm Ana Fernatt and I don't know anyone in LA. But...now I know you.
