Binged all the episodes

StreetTV is the best show and Alex Alonso is the best person to approach these stories. Love California history especially from the street perspective. I’m Black and born in ‘75 from San Diego. The Southern California Black and Brown experience is so similar, in words and deeds. Please keep the shows coming. Reading TERRITORIALITY AMONG AFRICAN-AMERICAN STREET GANGS IN LOS ANGELES, love California

I really like how you finding the OG’s. Can you do one on 135 Piru Gang (E/S)?

Love the content

This platform is my fav YouTube channel and the podcast is growing to be one of my favorites. As someone born and raised down south, I find the history of LA gang culture to be intriguing despite the unfortunate acts of violence associated with the culture. I’d love to see a video or hear an episode that goes into the history of the Hoovers—how they started, their past history with the Crips, why they split from the crips, why they chose orange, etc.
