Interesting Slice of Bay Area Life

I have listened for a long time. I appreciate the diversity of experiences that each host brings. The podcast is 3 minutes or less, so it provides a quick snapshot of Bay Area Life.

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.

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.
