Deep in the Mojave Desert, there is a little town with a big name and a bizarre history: California City. For decades, real estate developers have sold a dream here: if you buy land now, you’ll be rich one day. Thousands of people bought this dream. Many were young couples and hard-working immigrants looking to build a better future. But much of the land they bought is nearly worthless.  In this new podcast from LAist Studios, host Emily Guerin tells a story of money, power and deception.

California City is a fascinating look at a massive real estate scheme you've probably never heard of. The reporting is balanced and fairly objective -- a rare treasure in today's world. Many journalists and investigative podcasters could learn a lot from Ms. Emily Guerin. I can't wait to hear what comes next.
