Curious about the Bay? You’ve found your podcast!

This is such a great podcast. It helps me stay connected to my greater community and answers those questions that come up when you pass quirky landmarks. It’s a mix of fun, local stories and serious, important, philosophical questions that Bay Area residents must grapple with.

Love the podcast, hate all the sound effects

This podcast is great, the hosts are cool and I’ve learned a lot of interesting facts. However the sound design is atrocious. It’s just a constant barrage of cheap sounding sound effects basically any time a noun is mentioned. For example, if someone says the word “train”, well, you’re going to hear a train. It’s really annoying and makes the podcast borderline unlistenable.

I had to stop listening to the latest one about the glass windows in the sidewalks because it was just basically 7 minutes straight of corny sound effects. Please, PLEASE stop with the sound effects.
