On Thursday, September 3, KPCC and LAist Studios co-presented a special live conversation in partnership with The Autry Museum of the American West featuring “California City” podcast host Emily Guerin, the Desert Oracle’s Ken Layne, and artist and curator Kim Stringfellow. Together they explored the myths of the Mojave Desert as "wasteland," failed schemes and utopias, Instagram-driven tourism and coronavirus refugees.
