Charles Phoenix is a mid-century pop culture expert, humorist and author celebrating classic and kitschy American life and style. He is known for his spirited live performances, colorful coffee table books, “field trip” tours, and madcap videos. The Los Angeles Times says, “Call him the King of Retro.”

Join Charles and I in this fun episode as we discuss retro design, classic cars, Long Beach, the Cherpumple (a three-layer cake/pie hybrid), and much much more!
