This week's show features an interview with Ryan Gattis, author of All Involved, a novel set during the 1992 LA Riots, focusing on a sliver of Los Angeles almost completely ignored by the media at the time and told through seventeen interconnected first-person narratives. Gattis, who is a member of the LA street art crew UGLARworks, describes how he spent over two years researching the novel, interviewing a wide range of people that had lived through the riots, from nurses, firefighters, and police officers to gang members and graffiti artists.


Featuring Tom Lutz, Laurie Winer, and Seth Greenland. Produced by Alan Minsky.
