Jonny Moseley, Orange County, Museum Hack

Learn about an Olympic Gold Medalist’s Wildest Dreams, explore the O.C., and see two museums in a new light

Episode 10 of the California Now Podcast begins with a conversation about Jonny Moseley’s Wildest Dreams, including several nail-biting anecdotes about the making of the video series. The always-engaging Moseley also shares insights about a few of the locations he discovered while filming, including the beautiful scenery in Siskiyou County and the raw wilderness of Catalina Island. At the end of the segment, Moseley invites Soterios Johnson to join him on a future shoot…and you’ll have to listen in to hear how our podcast host responds.

Also in this episode, Mission San Juan Capistrano Executive Director Mechelle Lawrence Adams takes us on a jam-packed tour around Orange County that includes her favorite spots for shopping, margaritas, tacos, and more. The episode closes on a fun conversation with Tasia Duske, CEO of a tour company called Museum Hack that brings tons of energy, and a healthy dose of irreverence, to two of California’s best museums.
