On Sunday, April 23, KPCC will launch its Unheard LA series - a collection of stories told live by people of different stripes living all over LA and Orange Counties.

For a sneak peak, Take Two's A Martinez spoke with Jon Cohn and Ashley Alvarado of the KPCC In Person team.


Jon Cohn: We've engaged the community beyond the KPCC listening audience with a variety of tools to hear real stories, real people, things about Southern California that may be a little off the beaten path. And we've assembled them in a series of live shows. It'll be a combination of spoken word, music, visuals as a way to sort of celebrate and illuminate the complexity and diversity of Southern California.
