Joe and Babe #59: Downtown Phoenix History with “Dr. Anderson”

Joe and Babe LIVEWe’re baaaaaack!!  We’re super-excited to be back on the Internet airwaves in 2012!  Our first guest of the year is no stranger to QTalk Arizona, he’s none other than J. Seth Anderson who started our “What The Hell Is Going On In Arizona?” podcast!

Seth has lived in the Valley for many years, but over the past decade has really to come to love downtown Phoenix.  He’s very actively involved in preserving historic buildings and working to create better ways of using our existing land.  In fact, he’s so active that he recently co-authored a book on the very subject!  The book, aptly named “Downtown Phoenix” is now available and it’s a beautiful book with countless wonderfully historic photographs that tell the stories of our downtown.

Listen as we talk about Seth’s background, what he’s up to lately and what he might be doing next!  Also, we’re giving away tickets to the Street Eats Food Truck Festival on certain LIVE shows this weekend on QTalk Arizona, so stay tuned to know how you can win!

You can grab a copy (get a few while you’re at it!) of Seth’s new book at local retailers, online at Amazon and also at Seth’s website.
