Ep 45 - Six Degrees Of San Francisco
This week we see the culmination of all of SK's hopes and dreams and they are quite underwhelming.
Among such internet diversions as kick-starter campaigns, movement challenges (Referring to ice buckets and not constipation), and kitten videos, one will also encounter an infinite amount of podcasts, each with its own agenda (All are eagerly pursuing fame, but each one makes it their own). This is where SK Morton's Lousy San Francisco Podcast sets itself apart. For it is wholly the vehicle by whitch SK had hoped to lure his unsuspecting mentor, Daniel Bacon, to the bomb shelter.
And O summer's day, see where his dutch uncle comes. San Francisco's renowned historian, "Big Pappa", did indeed attend and regale the Throng with tales of near vandalism, seats near the stage at the SF Jazz Center and nearly avoided being sucked into a bridal fitness commercial.
Of course it is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a podcast host without accepting him and Mr. Bacon delivered with aplomb as he gave engaging insights into his new novel, "Frisco". He covers the history of San Francisco's general strike in 1934; locations in the book that can still be seen today (Such as the Arch Bishop's mansion, Julius' Castle, and Coit Tower); and even explains the title as he describes the City's own type of accent.
The final arena is an interesting discussion about the Barbary Coast Trail, of which Daniel Bacon is the founder. And when SK saw the breadth of his domain, he wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.
Get Daniel Bacon's Latest Novel, "FRISCO", and his guide book/collection of historical stories, "Walking San Francisco on the Barbary Coast Trail". I hear they're pretty good:
