LA DOT POD

A series of podcasts highlighting interviews with LADOT staff, past, present and future.


Continuing with the LA DOT POD series, this podcast focuses on retired LADOT engineer Martha Stephenson whose history is really the history of the City agency. Alan Nakagawa had the opportunity to sit down with her in her amazing garden to talk about her history and the history of LADOT.

Scott Schultz has dedicated his time, storytelling talents, stand up experience, news media pedigree and Los Angeles residency to the unique and colorful stories of LA’s bus riding culture. BUSted is a webcast about bus riding culture in Los Angeles. Facebook | YouTube
