Talking Headways Podcast: A Car Free Travel Guide to Los Angeles

This week we're joined by Nathan Landau, a transit planner in the Bay Area and author of the travel guide Car Free Los Angeles and Southern California. It's got great places to eat, theater, live music, and even local book stores. But why write a travel guide that focuses on getting around without a car? And why is a northern California planner writing about the southern part of the state? Listen and find out.

I put the question to Nathan: If he was Anthony Bourdain and had 24 hours in LA, where would he go? The answer might surprise you -- it certainly made me want to go take a look at places I hadn't been before. We also delve into books and movies about LA that folks should read before a trip, and why it is that disaster movies seem to destroy the city over and over again.

So join us for a fun conversation about Los Angeles and learn a few places to go and how to get there on the bus or train.
