Category?? a tragic event and a joyous event

This week’s Hear in the City takes you to the 10 miles of streets where countless thousands of Angelinos had the rare pleasure of walking, cycling, skating, and otherwise propelling themselves on human power, exclusively, for a day during this April’s Ciclavia event. We also spend time with three Chinese students at the University of Southern California in the wake of a tragic killing of two Chinese graduate students in front of their guest home in South Los Angeles.

it’s the year of the rabbit


This week, we go to the opening of an exhibition by a Mexican photographer whose project is documenting women who are most ignored by dominant Mexican society, and we learn more about how Chinese New Year is traditionally celebrated, and, we have an update from Luis Sierra Campos at City Hall about a proposal that would reduce the length of bus-only lanes on Wilshire Blvd.

On today’s show we want to wrap up the year with a review of what our dedicated producers felt were the most impactful stories we have covered since we launched Hear in the City in September. If you listen regularly (we thank you) and you’ve probably noticed that our show focuses on environment, arts, education, and culture in and around Los Angeles. Most of the stories you’ll hear today, as we wrap up the year, have to do with the economy–Why?

Well, we’ve been thinking a lot about what this show should do. What do we need in Southern California that a little radio show with a lot of voices can provide? We landed on this: community and equality in the urban environment.

Our goal with Hear in the City is to map the city through sound-rich profiles of people living and working toward creative social change and solutions. One way we do that, as journalists and producers, is working with community stakeholders who have important stories to tell.

the urban environment


We tour curb-side green interventions by activists, students, and community groups at Parking Day L.A., we check in with immigrants’ rights protesters arraigned by the city attorney, and we take a walk into the water with leopard sharks swimming around our ankles.
