Ep. 13: Patti Podesta & Tony Salome at the Ambassador Hotel from "Bobby"
Production designer Patti Podesta and location manager Tony Salome meet up with us at Robert F. Kennedy Inspiration Park, just outside the former grounds of L.A.'s magnificent Ambassador Hotel, where we dive into the locations of Emilio Estevez's critically acclaimed 2006 film, "Bobby". Salome and Podesta discuss the intricacies of trying to film at the Ambassador Hotel when, after decades of being seen on screen, the property was off-limits to filming. They also reflect on the reverence of filming at the actual location where Bobby Kennedy was fatally shot, doubling the Ambassador Hotel at other L.A. locations, and Estevez as a writer-director.

We head up to Starfleet Command, aka the Getty Center, and dive into the locations from J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" (2009) and "Star Trek Into Darkness" (2013) with Steve Woroniecki and Scott Trimble. They talk about the monumental job of putting together the locations for both films, their genuine love of the series, and working on subsequent "Star Trek" projects. www.getty.edu
