YCETS: A Forgotten Resort From The Jazz Age Revisited


You Can’t Eat the Sunshine is a weekly podcast series produced by Kim Cooper and Richard Schave in which the Esotouric founders talk with L.A. personalities about the city’s myths, contradictions, and inspirations.

This week, Richard and Kim speak with architectural historian and City of Norco council member Kevin Bash about the Norconian Supreme Resort, Southern Californias forgotten jewel of the Jazz Age. They also sit down once again with Julie Rivett, granddaughter of author Dashiell Hammett, about the Flintcraft Parable in his 1930s detective novel The Maltese Falcon.

In this exclusive clip, Bash imagines a day-in-the-life with vaudeville performer Will Rogers at the Norconian Supreme Resort.
