Beneath the city’s trendy surface, Austin’s undersung “Taco Mile” (located up north on Rundberg Ln.) is serving up some of the most authentic tacos in the area. In this episode, we’ll examine how this hidden gem of a taco scene reflects Austin’s segregationist history, changing demographics, and the plight of immigrants in Texas’ capital city. Guests include Laura Toledo, owner, and operator of Taqueria Ceibas, Greg Casar, Austin City Council Member, Representative for Austin’s District Four, and Jose Carrasco, Director of the Family Resource Center at Austin’s Dobie Middle School.
