Spectrum News 1 host Alex Cohen has lived a crazy life, from radio to roller derby and everything in between, and she talks about all of it on the latest A La Carte conversation. Alex discusses growing up in the hills of Los Angeles in the ’70s surrounded by parents who taught transcendental meditation, filmmakers and musicians; attending fine arts boarding school with plans to become an actress, followed by stops at Brown University, Portland and Japan; and eventually ending up at NPR, including here in LA at KPCC, as a producer, reporter and anchor. Now, she’s a morning show anchor and the host of “Inside the Issues” on Spectrum News 1 as well as a podcast of her own, “SoCal in 17.” Christy has known Alex longer than anyone who's been on this podcast, but she had a blast discovering her all over again during this lively and wide-ranging conversation. Hope you enjoy, too.
