Ep 80 - Let This Happen
"Phoning it in" is often used as a derogatory term. But this week, on the Lousy Podcast, we prove that it can also be used to describe a lost cause.
All parties concerned gave it a good try this episode. Pete was quite sincere in his assessment of jazz/bluegrass fusion. Shantwon was back in the bomb shelter with zealous promotion of his new digs at Trinity Place. And SK - poor SK - as usual, had prepared for a guest that hadn't shown up. All of these factors lead to a show with an earnest, if not mind numbing, consciousness of the fate of our fair city.
We started out with a quick rundown of what makes SF different and discovered man buns, lines, and jay walking. Then, as is our want, we linked everything (From private streets to the Gold Rush to ill-perceived intestine fountains) to racism. Finally, we managed to sum up every mega project slated for the next 30 years in as many minutes. We even went inside Cricket.
It was a wicked googly.
