Episode 1 of Season 2 is finally here! We're super starstruck to have Shaheen Sadeghi in studio.

Sadeghi is celebrating the 25-year anniversary of his flagship project - The LAB (Little American Businesses) anti-mall right here in Costa Mesa. He's also the creative visionary behind The Camp in Costa Mesa's SoBeCA District, as well as the Anaheim's Packing District, and others too.

We talk to Sadeghi about his beginnings, his process, his views on where the future of food, shopping and neighborhoods are growing - and why he thinks Costa Mesa is still a phenomenal place to start your own business.
