One Day in San Francisco (podcast 49)


Bush Street

After our wedding, Jessica had our honeymoon in Maui–and in San Franicso for a day. We checked into our hotel downtown, then ventured west into the city where we first met. That day we took the N Judah under the peaks and visited Sharon Meadow and Golden Gate Park, along with old Haight Street, and Jessica explained some artistic ideas.

This podcast features a bit of San Francisco and a bit of Cleveland, featuring a segment outside the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame hosted by Jessica, Lebron James shooting a free throw, lots of cool animals at the Cleveland Zoo, back to SF for a trolley taking off on Powell Street, and exclusive clips of a BART ride through the south of the city along with Joey thrown in for good measure.

Jessica and I took a wonderful trip to Yosemite National Park in California last summer, seeing beautiful animals, amazing rocks and a stunning lake at the end of our hike.

One of the “lost episodes” for a while, it is now edited and ready to be enjoyed. We had a wonderful anniversary trip, and this video gives a little taste of it. This should go a long way toward convincing you to take a trip out to see Yosemite yourself!

(View on Youtube.) podcast 9 – MUNI car crash

I was in the front of the 38 MUNI bus moving east on Geary Boulevard through the Inner Richmond when a car slammed into the back of the vehicle.

Quickly I turned on my camera, as the bright San Francisco day illuminated scenes of confusion. So podcast #9 is the Geary MUNI car crash edition.

A mangled car, the bus full of shocked riders that quickly become gawkers, the parking officer as the first official showing up on the scene–it’s all a bit crazy really, and all I did was follow the mob and record.

In our continuing MUNI adventures (see other MUNI happenings here and here) we see that someone has crashed his car into the 38 inbound bus. Chaos, mid-day San Francisco style ensues. From the lovely Richmond neighborhood, this one is real adventure [with some sound issues].

(View on Youtube.) podcast 14: film noir

Podcast #14 is an 11-minute journey through San Francisco along Geary Boulevard, by bus and by bike, from the Fillmore to 20th Avenue, from light into darkness.

As the days get shorter and shorter so quickly now as we head into November, I offer my own tribute to film noir.

podcast 10: birds of Mountain Lake Park

This podcast is a tribute by me to our local lake–actually the same one where Jessica and I made a skateboarding movie earlier this year—starring a group of ducks and some other birds.

So enjoy the birds of the Presidio and Mountain Lake Park in this high-fi, low-key tenth edition of the podcast!
