Ep. 129: Of trauma and forgiveness at a 22-Fillmore stop
San Francisco native and San Francisco Standard journalist Meaghan Mitchell takes the stage, sharing this life-changing experience from her youth at a 22-Fillmore stop. A reminder that stories on Muni Diaries can range from sweet and quirky, to weird and funny, to powerful, at times uncomfortable, and personal.

Ep. 128: BART Board by day, Muni superhero by night
When BART Board Director Janice Li saw a fight break out on the bus, she took matters into her own hands. But what she saw after making a public information request for the bus footage (which anyone can do, BTW) was something else entirely.
Ep. 127: Katie Haverkamp and LeBron James (the cat) just can't quit SF
The world’s biggest Boat Tram fan Katie Haverkamp (mom of Muni-riding cat LeBron James) returned to the Muni Diaries Live stage to explain why she can't quit San Francisco. Spoiler alert: this lady has got zero commitment phobia when it comes to her love for this city.
Ep. 126: Hayden Miller's wild ride
Safe streets advocate Hayden Miller joined the Muni Diaries Live stage for the first time in April 2022. He might be in high school, but his expertise was known to a n00b Muni operator, who leaned on that knowhow for driving directions (seriously). All ended up in some...uncharted territory.
Ep. 125: A Muni operator you really need to meet
We're thrilled to bring you a live taping from our return to the stage at Muni Diaries Live on April 7, 2022! In this episode, Muni operator MC Allen explains how he went from transit fan, San Francisco devotee, to a Muni operator who went absolutely viral on Twitter.

Ep. 124: Two poets enter, one poet leaves...it's the Muni Haiku Battle!

Love the diverse local stories!
Enjoyable mix of new and old stories about the greatest city. As all are ‘linked’ by public transportation, this is a wonderfully diverse podcast.
such great stories! want more!
Great stories! Intro/host seems off though
I used to go to the live shows often when I lived in SF. I live abroad now and I’m so pleased to be able to get an SF fix. The tone of the host seems off though. It almost sounds stereotypically public radio-esque but this is storytelling. The host doesn’t need to have that whispering public radio thing. Either way, I’m so pleased to have found this podcast.
