Ep 28 - The Dim Knight Rises
In a world where podcasts are as ubiquitous as air, water and Adele, one man dares to fill time by muttering on about movies with San Francisco connections. Meet SK Morton. a tour guide who relies on his knowledge of San Francisco to feed himself and what he doesn't know could kill him.
When a plan is devised to discuss SF based movies a rag tag team of misfits must, first, make their way through updates where the Warriors are invited to come over to playay, big history is being dug up in little Chinatown, and all are encouraged to remember the Alamo Draft House.
Somewhere between Bridal Fitness Coach and Amazon commercials lie discussions about Steve McQueen, Bruce Willis, Frank Sinatra, Sean Connery, Kate Blanchet and Margret Keene as well as movies like "So I married an Axe Murderer", Towering Inferno", Star Trek IV, "Blue Jasmine", "In & Out", "Big Eyes", "The Conversation", The Parrots of Telegraph Hill and "X-Men". But a musical interlude featuring TV theme songs was one thing they didn't count on.
In the middle of it all, SK ties in a story about Donaldina Cameron and her crusade against human trafficking around the turn of the 20th century - but this was one crime SK didn't commit.
Every generation has a story, every legend has a hero, every blurb has a theme...This time it's unintelligible.
For those of you who like to talk a lot of nay
