Comedian Heather Gold reinvents the jalopy known as the talk show live from Luscious Garage. With just a theme, 3 diverse guests, and the people formerly known as the audience (that’s you), Heather puts life up on the lift (literally!) and looks under the hood.
"a talk show San Francisco-style...delivers genuine conversation." - SF Weekly
"frequently funny...[n]o talking heads, no sniping, no snarking." - San Francisco Chronicle
"utterly inspiring" - Rhodessa Jones, founder Media Project
Along with guest Dale Dougherty, founder of MAKE magazine, Carolyn Coquilette, owner and chief mechanic of Luscious Garage, America’s first green, hybrid-only garage and rapper/performer Juba Kalamka, founder of Sugartruck Recordings and the Peace Out HomoHop Festival, and the people formerly known as the audience (thats you), I conversate about Doin’ It Yourself. Why is it so damn satisfying? What is better left to pros? Is poverty the only thing that gets us to DIY? Is it just a new hipster name for a hobby or a mindset that is our best hope for a better life than GloboCorp can give us? What have you done yourself recently?
