Original, personal stories from San Francisco
I highly recommend KQED's daily Perspectives. The Perspectives series highlights the best of the SF Bay Area's personal stories and opinions, but with resonance for everyone. They give me the world in miniature. I especially look forward to Michael Ellis' natural history Perspectives.
One of the most interesting podcasts
I am a podcast junkie. I listen to at least an hour of podcasts everyday and this is one of my favorites. The perspectives range the gambit from political to humorous to interesting and sometimes just absurd. Almost all of them have something interesting to share. Definitely worth the 2 minutes of your day.
