The coworking giant WeWork said it would raise world consciousness and rebuild cities, with help from architect Bjarke Ingels. Now it has pulled its IPO, after firing its CEO last week. Where does that leave WeWork and coworking spaces in general? We hear about LA's booming coworking scene, how spaces are differentiated through design, and we’ll talk to the founder of Epiphany Space, which aims to raise consciousness in a very different way.

And, what do autographs reveal about Los Angeles? Josh Kun’s "The Autograph Book of L.A.: Improvements on the Page of the City” uses the LA Public Library’s extensive autograph collection to explore who gets to leave their mark.
