    Family Plot: Alfred Hitchcock's last film. Talking with Shaun Chang of the Hill Place Movie and TV Blog.

    Family Plot: Alfred Hitchcock's last film. Talking with Shaun Chang of the Hill Place Movie and TV Blog.

    Set in San Francisco in the mid-1970s, Hitchcock captures the Zeitgeist of the City by the Bay at that time. A light hearted thriller that features an amusing couple as the protagonists - she a clairvoyant, he an aspiring actor/taxi driver, they cross paths with a calculating pair of villains. Listen to this podcast before watching the film for a richer more nuanced experience.

    Roe versus Wade overturned. In conversation with Associate Professor of Constitutional Law Luke Boso at University of San Francisco School of Law.

    Roe versus Wade overturned. In conversation with Associate Professor of Constitutional Law Luke Boso at University of San Francisco School of Law.

    The United States Supreme Court overturned this 49 year landmark precedent which gave a woman the right to an abortion. As a result of this decision, regulation of abortion will be de-constitutionalized and returned to the states. But 26 states plan to restrict or abolish abortion. The remaining 24 states where abortion will remain available may become sanctuaries for women to obtain abortions.

    Prisoners of Geography : 10 maps that explain everything about the world. By Tim Marshall. A Review by Jim Herlihy

    Prisoners of Geography : 10 maps that explain everything about the world. By Tim Marshall. A Review by Jim Herlihy

    The physical geography of countries, mountains, rivers, lakes, coastlines etc  largely dictate the political decisions of their leaders.  We tend to overlook those critical facts when conflicts arise. And no country is as much a victim of its flawed geography as Russia. On the other hand, few nations are as advantaged by their geography as the United States.

San Francisco Experience

Jim’s presentations are modulated and easily understood. The subject matter is well researched and brought to life by its relevance to today’s events. Jim has been able to bring a richness to the San Francisco experience for visitors like myself. From the history of SF to current event like the response to the pandemic to the obscure fact, unique to San Francisco. I feel rewarded for my time, having learned something new and interesting. I’m always looking forward to the next installment. Definitely worth a listen.
