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.

Our Theme Song is by The Ukulady

Join us this week as we visit with Louise Ivers, Long Beach architectural historian and preservationist, for an overview of that city’s rich and quickly disappearing architectural legacy. We’ll also talk with writer Steffie Nelson about the people and ideas that have helped shape her concept of “Cosmic Los Angeles.”

We’ll also discuss Kim’s discovery of Raymond Chandler’s comic operetta “The Princess and the Pedlar,” preservation concerns about the Redlands Passenger Rail Project, sidewalk vending push in Los Angeles and Francis Anderton’s reporting on Pershing Square Renew. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of December 8th.
