Artbound on LA#itself
Welcome to the first installment of the limited series podcast, Los Angeles Hashtags Itself. Our first episode features a conversation with Juan Devis, senior vice president of content development for KCETLink, the largest independent television network in the United States and executive producer of today’s focus, KCET’s Artbound.
Devis shares with us what happens when you dedicate multiple online platforms, streaming video capabilities, and the power of social networks to telling the story of Southern California’s rich and diverse arts and culture. For starters: despite what many believe, Angelenos love their local history.
Enjoy, and click below for shows and topics we discussed.
