LA Hashtags (Her)self

Brettany K. Shannon, the Bedrosian Center’s inaugural Scholar-in-Residence, is the voice and brain behind this innovative look at placemaking.

Los Angeles Hashtags Itself, multi-season serial podcast, featuring various Angeleno agencies leading the critical trend of using digital media for urban and social development. This diverse group serves as both a reminder and an analytical insight that digital media are neither just “useful” nor peculiar to the sharing and cultural economies, but fast becoming standard to the practice of material and social placemaking.

If you like art, community benefits organizations, cultural journalism, real estate, transportation, and the technology industry generally, we hope you will find something worth hearing.
