WILD

LAist Studios

Introducing WILD, a podcast about growing up… kind of. About those moments big and small that transform us forever.

WILD is about origin stories, OUR origin story. Hosted by award-winning New York Times writer Erick Galindo, in collaboration with Adweek’s producer of the year, Megan Tan and LAist Studios. Season 1 is a time capsule of 10 people and how they found light in a year of darkness.

    JB Hamby and the other lead negotiators on the Colorado River have to come up with a long term solution to manage the river in the face of climate change. Will they reach a deal before it’s too late? 

     

    LAist correspondent Emily Guerin examines how JB's position on water has dramatically evolved since he first won office a few years ago. She brings us back to the current water negotiations as the conflict between the Upper and Lower Basins becomes very public, and JB struggles to convince Imperial Valley farmers that they need to cut back.

    HTLA Presents: How Not To Be Lonely: Part 6 - Connect To Yourself — And Others — Through Dance

    Part 6: Connect To Yourself — And Others — Through Dance 

    We're back with another episode in our How Not To Be Lonely in L.A. series. 

    Brian is out but, today, How To LA producer Megan Botel takes over the mic and explores these questions: What does it mean to connect to yourself, and why is it important for warding off feelings of loneliness? How do you do it? And in a group setting? 

    One way is to do the things you loved as a kid and connect with that "inner child."  For Megan, that was ballet, so we are checking out Studio A, a funky little dance studio tucked behind the Hyperion Arts Building in Silver Lake. 

    Guests: Cati Jean, dance instructor and choreographer at Studio A; Cat Moore, director of belonging at USC, dance student. 

    For more on the importance of moving in sync with others while connecting to oneself, read her LAist article here: https://laist.com/news/how-to-la/in-a-social-funk-pickleball-dance-and-other-physical-group-activities-could-be-a-solution

    HTLA presents: Revival House: Part 7 - The Long Road From Silent Films to Brain Dead Studios

    Go back to the movies with us!

    We're still profiling LA's repertory theaters in Revival House cause there are SO MANY to check out! In this episode, we explore a cool space with some deep, messy history.

    Fashion label Brain Dead has taken over a site that some would consider....a little cursed. Originally opened in the 1940s as The Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax, the venue was home to premieres and parties. Until a theft and murder shut the theater down.

    In the 2000s, it was taken over by Cinefamily, which programmed in that space until allegations of abuse came to light in 2017.

    But today, Brain Dead Studios is keeping the lights on for nerds, artists, and skate punks in Los Angeles -- aiming to create an eclectic community space to inspire creatives and show good movies. Take a listen as we explain the history and present of this theater.

    Guests: Professor and historian Ross Melnick, Brain Dead founder Kyle Ng
