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 Steve Lech, historian and docent with the Mission Inn Foundation, to learn about that hotel’s rich history, which dates back more than a century. We’ll also talk with Erin Gettis, Principal Planner and City Historic Preservation Officer for the City of Riverside, about Riverside’s great mid-century modern architecture, and the recent public policy decisions that foster its preservation.

We’ll also discuss: Modesto’s modernist architecture, radio feature on proto-hard-boiled author Jim Tully and the L.A. Conservancy advocates for preserving the Bob Baker Marionette Theater as a working theater. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of November 24th.
