This is the city Podcast is from producing team Gerren Kelsaw and Jana Sosnowski. As long time downtown Los Angeles residents and creatives, they decided to help bring a stronger connection between the community of Los Angeles and the events and texture active within the city.
Our belief is that conversation and information is key to civic prosperity and we’re glad to be part of that discussion.
Jana is a native Angeleno with a passion for politics, the urban outdoors, and the Dodgers. She is a graduate of the University of Southern California with a degree in Print Journalism and has spent the past decade teaching high school. Now a mom, she is often seen pushing a stroller around downtown, viewing the neighborhood with a fresh set of eyes. Jana is the writer and co-producer of This is the City.
Gerren has called Los Angeles his home for over a decade. He has adopted the city and is an active participant in politics, community service, and the entertainment scene. He has spent a majority of the last decade working in both radio and television production and is now excited to combine his passions as host of This is the City. Gerren is the reporter, host and co-producer of This is the City.
Eat! Drink! Podcast is about exploring deliciousness in Los Angeles. Come enjoy with us as we explore libations and good eats around the neighborhood. Gerren and cohost Anthony Bejarano take their recreation seriously as professional advocates of a good night out.
Anthony was born and raised in the L.A. area before heading to Washington, D.C. to pursue a degree in writing from Georgetown University. He has been a purveyor of fine DTLA haunts since 2003 and became a full-time resident in 2010. A one-time political activist, community organizer, and elected official, Anthony now spends his days as an in-house attorney and his evenings exploring all of DTLA with his family and friends.
