On Episode #1 of CAN YOU HEAR ME, LONG BEACH? pop culture anthropologist/architectural historian/entertainer Charles Phoenix talks about his upcoming Long Beachland show at the Art Theatre, part of Architecture Week, and why he loves everything about Long Beach… yes, even the Queen Mary. (Two words: Drink tickets!)

Also, Asia Morris gives you things to do this weekend, one of which is NOT getting hit while riding in the new bike lanes. And did we cut the part where Asia called someone “murderous?” Because we should totally do that.
