Meet Mr. Orlov

LAO podcastRick Orlov gives a sneak peek at tomorrow's Tipoff column in the Daily News to LA Observed video blogger Jacob Soboroff — psst, there's a good item about City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo. We also get to see Orlov's office in the third floor press rooms at City Hall and hear him chat about the differences between covering Antonio Villaraigosa and previous mayors.
