LA Maker Love!
What a wonderful, thoughtful, well-produced podcast! I can’t believe this is only the first episode!! I’m not a maker and it’s very cool learning about the artist’s process and history and connection to LA. Looking forward to more!
Interesting, informative and the production value is off the charts! High-five, LA Makers Posse. Excited to see where this goes and get to learn about more of your vendors... Viva los Tacos! ;)
Looking at LA differently
This is a really cool way to get a different point of view of LA! Pumped to hear more about different makers and their own journeys.
