The turbulent history of the Dodgers and their stadium

Hosted by

It may be commonplace now to root for the Dodgers, but it wasn’t when the team was moving to LA from Brooklyn. Author Jerald Podair tells the story of Dodger Stadium, a rancorous referendum, forced evictions from Chavez Ravine, and how the stadium gave birth to modern Los Angeles.
