We had the good fortune of connecting with Greg and Daniel Gonzalez and Zafran and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Greg and Daniel, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
Above all, being consistent. It gives off a degree of dependability that translates to professionalism and legitimacy. More importantly it keeps US moving forwards always by imposing a schedule and deadline to strive for all the time.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
With our podcast, L.A. Meekly, we provide a digestible and casual way of absorbing the history of the city of Los Angeles. There aren’t many others doing that and, certainly, no others that do it like us. It wasn’t easy getting to the level we are at now. Just years and years of pushing forward and finding new, fun ways to connect to people who have never heard of us. The biggest lesson we learned was, to coin a phrase, to just do it. Waiting until the opportune time to start a new endeavor is the worst idea you could have and just jumping in completely unqualified is the only way to make progress.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would insist they spend every breakfast, lunch and dinner during their stay eating in a series of great restaurants in strip malls across the entire county. The museums and sites are great but food is one of the greatest joys Los Angeles has to offer a visitor. That and great movie screenings in gorgeous old theaters with the makers of the movies in attendance.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Our fans and significant others who for some reason like us and won’t stop rooting for us.
