South of Fletcher podcast has officially wrapped! But you can still get all caught up here.

Once one of Southern California’s most important rail yards, this site will soon become the next urban California State Park, joining a patchwork of other river-adjacent green spaces that are shaping the course of LA River revitalization. Through personal interviews with people who have worked, lived and otherwise made their marks at this post-industrial site, Fonografia Collective explores some of LA’s biggest challenges, and speculates about what change at this site might mean for the rest of the city. Written and co-produced by Ruxandra Guidi and Clockshop, edited by Ibby Caputo and with music by Luis Guerra.

New Opinion Piece: Migrants’ Endless Walk North by Bear Guerra

“In a now-retracted description, the Associated Press called the caravan ‘a ragtag army of the poor.’ But I see this latest migrant pilgrimage as something entirely different: a bold people’s movement aimed at subverting the class disparities and strict immigration enforcement of a system deliberately stacked against working-class migrants.” Read the whole piece here.

New Feature: A California Mayor Wants His Beach Town to Retreat From the Shore by Bear Guerra

“At the start of each year, Southern California gets a glimpse into a future of rising seas, through an annual event called the king tide. On that day, the sun, moon, and Earth align to create a heavy gravitational pull, leading to the highest tides of the year. If “king tide” sounds ominous, that’s because it is, particularly for a city like Imperial Beach, a small coastal town near the Mexican border surrounded by water on three sides: San Diego Bay to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Tijuana River Delta to the south.”
