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 Ellen Calomiris, Executive Director of the historic Rancho Los Cerritos in Long Beach, about the past three decades of curatorial strategies for preserving and interpreting this time capsule of California’s Rancho days. We’ll also visit with the Los Angeles Public Library’s Map Librarian Glenn Creason, to learn about an astonishing, and nearly lost, hoarder’s treasure that his department recently accessioned.

We’ll also discuss a new campaign to put images from the Los Angeles City Archives online, the pending demolition of the Wham-O / Sriracha plant in San Gabriel, adaptive re-use options for the recently purchased Broadway Trade Center / Hamburger’s Department Store on Broadway and possible freeway cap parks in Downtown, Hollywood and Boyle Heights. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of September 1st, 2014
