    The Ultimate Party Foul: Vaccine Refusal

    The Ultimate Party Foul: Vaccine Refusal

    On this week's episode of the SF Weekly Podcast we chat with our newest columnist, Stuart Schuffman — better known to many as Broke-Ass Stuart — and we discuss what is quite clearly the biggest party foul of the summer: Not getting the vaccine.

    In addition to joining the SF Weekly team, Schuffman is also co-hosting a web series about the resilience of San Francisco businesses.

    Delta Variant: What's the Deal?

    Delta Variant: What's the Deal?

    This is why we can't have nice things. Just as Americans were finally beginning to truly let their guard down, mother nature and a fair amount of unvaccinated folks, joined forces to put our hot vax summer on hold.

    But, in all seriousness, the delta variant is serious. It is more contagious than previous strains of the novel coronavirus, it is more deadly for the unvaccinated, and it is even causing so-called "breakthrough" cases of COVID-19 in those who have received the vaccine.

    So, what are we to do? Well, none of us at SF Weekly is qualified to answer that question, so we called up Dr. George Rutherford from UCSF to get his take on the situation.

    Parklets, Bars & Clubs, Best Music of 2021

    Parklets, Bars & Clubs, Best Music of 2021

    As the Irish glam rock god once sang: The bars are back in town! (The bars are back in town!) One month after California's official unmasking, San Francisco just might be the safest place in the state, country, and even the world, to party... at least for now.

    But as we hopefully, truthfully, for real this time, begin to put the pandemic in the rear view mirror, there is a question on every San Franciscan's mind: What's going to happen to all those parklets?

    As of last week, the Board of Supervisors ruled they can stay and on this episode of the podcast we explore how they came to be and where they might be headed. Plus we run down some of the best albums of 2021 so far.

    Happy Birthday, America. God... you're old.

    Pridecast: Rainbow Corporation + Re-Fund the Police?

    On this week's episode of the SF Weekly podcast, contributor Saul Sugarman discusses how social media platforms like Instagram and Shopify are turbo-boosting the commercialization of Pride.

    Also, Veronica Irwin and Benjamin Schneider talk about Mayor London Breed's promise to divert funds from the police department to help underserved youth of color — which didn't exactly pan out the way all the glowing headlines made it appear earlier this year.
