Let It Ride Episode 101: From The Ground Up

Our guests on this episode are a San Diego grassroots community-building love story, who from the beginning shared a mutual agreement they would be creating alongside each other for the rest of their lives, who strive to instill a sense of self-love and pride in people and communities, paying homage to the cultures that formed them, with imagery you can see, relate to, and connect with—from the ground up.

They seem to share a close belief with one of our own core values, “Building and influencing community from San Diego outward.”

Lovers and artists of color, painting the town with hands that are brown, they’re the artists of Ground Floor Murals: listen to Signe Ditona and Paul Jimenez on The Longhairs podcast.

What you'll hear about:

  • Paul and Signe’s creative love story
  • Spray painting during quarantine
  • Ground Floor Murals’ first commission
  • The importance of community
  • Getting commissioned by the Padres
  • If you should need an extra boost of motivation

Don’t miss the best love story we’ve ever heard on Let It Ride.
