Every neighborhood has a soundscape, a mélange of musical and sometimes nonmusical noises all its own. Whether it's music, birds, car horns or ice cream trucks, KPCC's Take Two morning show wants to feature those sounds (good and bad) that provide a soundtrack to your every day.
We have created a short set of questions and a way to record and upload audio.

We are creating sustainable meetups where everyone who want to live off grid in a sustainable community and want to grow ones own non gmo healthy foods has the opportunity to do so.

The United States is simply not the same country that it used to be.…Continue

She was in the street walking when an on coming car approached her; she stood in the path of the car with her arms in the air, the car stopped and drove in reverse to prevent…Continue
