PODCAST: On Opera, Donald Trump’s golden toilet and the Long Beach Post turning one… again

On Episode #3 of “CAN YOU HEAR ME, LONG BEACH?” Long Beach Opera director Andreas Mitisek talks about what went into the highly anticipated production of “The Central Park Five,” and whose idea was the golden toilet.

Long Beach Post is celebrating its first-year anniversary with new management and an expanded staff which, in one year, has become the city’s leading source for news and Asia Morris biking videos. Asia, managing editor Melissa Evans and old guy Tim Grobaty gather ‘round to tell how all this continues to happen.

Finally, Asia and Steve Lowery review “The 7” and what to do this weekend, including Harrison Ford and “Raiders of the Lost Ark” plot holes (i.e. submarines).
