With interviews and in-the-field reporting by L.A. Taco contributors, the Taco podcast is your source for comprehensive local news that captures the vibe on the streets, and analysis on the evolving food landscape in L.A.

    We embed with the inaugural run of Tacos 1986 at Smorgasburg LA, where long lines showed up to taste the Tijuana-style sensation starting off the year. Plus, a discussion by Cesar Hernandez on three street vendors taking over Smorg in 2019. First in news, reporter Melanie Gonzalez tells us about the historic start of the L.A. teachers strike.
