Faith Pinho on fortunetellers and the Romani community
Faith Pinho, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, created and hosted a new nine-part podcast series, called “Foretold,” that delves into the rich history of the Romani community in California, with a focus on Los Angeles. The narrative unfolds through the perspective of a young Romani American woman, Paulina Stevens, who defies her predestined path as a fortuneteller to rewrite her own story. Pinho’s storytelling takes us beyond the neon glow of “psychic” signs and the allure of trendy tarot card shops, challenging us to confront our preconceptions about fortunetellers and the Romani people.
