About Podcast Series

You Can’t Eat the Sunshine is the podcast of Esotouric, the offbeat Los Angeles company that turns the notion of guided bus tours on its ear. Each week, join Kim Cooper and Richard Schave on their Southern California adventures, as they visit with fascinating characters for wide-ranging interviews that reveal the myths, contradictions, inspirations and passions of the place. There’s never been a city quite like Los Angeles. Tune in if you’d like to find out why.

Join us this week as we talk with Kate Eggert & Krisy Gosney of the Save the Santa Monica Boulevard Streamline Moderne campaign, for the riveting saga of their astounding grassroots preservation efforts to save these important structures from what looked to be certain demolition.

We’ll also discuss the return of swap meet vendors to Echo Park lake, a modernist Bakersfield architecture tour, the slow path to L.A.‘s anti-mcmansion ordinance and a possible community notification system for demolition permit requests affecting older buildings. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of September 29th, 2014.
