This is the full piece, At Home, by Ben Adair
At Home explores ideas of memory, home and place through a lens particular to Southern California, Los Angeles and greater Silver Lake. Voices of longtime residents, newcomers and those who have come and gone show how even a relatively young city like L.A. makes and re-makes itself in its own unique way.
What's left after we've moved on? How do we preserve unwritten histories? Which parts, if any, of those histories should be preserved, and why? By whom?
At Home is a series of personal documentaries told via audio. You can access all nine episodes here: bit.ly/AtHomeBenAdair
