David Ulin Wonders What City Life Will Look Like in the Future
From the Quarantine Tapes Podcast with Paul Holdengraber
Hosted by Paul Holdengräber, The Quarantine Tapes chronicles shifting paradigms in the age of social distancing. Each day, Paul calls a guest for a brief discussion about how they are experiencing the global pandemic.
Today on episode 85 of The Quarantine Tapes, Paul Holdengräber and writer David Ulin discuss Los Angeles in the last few months, how the pandemic is changing public space, and speculate on what city life might look like as we move through this time. David and Paul also talk about walking, monuments, and the consolation they can draw from reading literature about previous plagues throughout history.
