Customer Reviews

Locals must (everyone should) listen

Really enjoyable conversations about people and places in the Bay Area. Insider without being pretentious.
Start with “Destination: Hangover” for a sentimental and practical conversation about the best late night and not so early morning shame eating locations. Anybody who ever brought a big group to a Lyons in high school can relate. You will end the pod with a list of places you want to go to and a hearty appetite.

Hartlaub knocks it out the park

Intriguing topics, fascinating guests, good bumper music. Must listen for Bay Area residents, instructional for those of us who
SF but live far away. Jim Hayes would be proud indeed.

Epic every time!

Always epic!
