Dish Yo Deets! Bay Area Residents Represent Their Cultures

Ep. 1: November 19, 2015

The San Francisco Bay Area is one of the most diverse places on the planet, yet dialog between culture creators and change makers is often limited…until now! 360BayArea dives into the lifestyle, politics, and unique perspectives of colorful voices from all around the Bay. On this episode we brought Elizabeth, Kat, John, Maria, Lamat, Lulue and Jamarr to talk about their ethnic backgrounds, upbringings and family traditions.  It's what we around here  call "Dishing your deets!" That's short for details. (wink)
