Absolutely delightful

Allan McLeod is one of my favorite guests on several podcasts. So happy to listen to this.

Allan McLeod leads the best walking tours

I’m so happy this podcast exists. It’s equal parts funny and informative with great guests and witty banter. A must listen if you live in or visit LA or are just curious about the city’s history and walking routes.
