BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A new podcast featuring California City is set to drop next week and this morning, Mike Hart 23ABC spoke with its host Emily Guerin about what listeners can expect!
The podcast takes listeners into the Mojave Desert to understand the complicated history of the town where, for decades, local real estate developers have sold a dream – you buy land now, you’ll be rich one day. Thousands of people, from young couples to hard-working immigrants, bought into this dream only to find out the land is worthless.
Emily has been working on this project for several years after she stumbled upon it in 2016 while reporting on the drought.
The podcast will feature seven episodes and will be available Monday wherever you get your podcasts.
