Entertaining and educational

King Kaufman finds such interesting nuggets from the past and tells the stories in such an engaging fashion. The episode on Randy Shilts was a real treat - a deep dive into a little remembered story of a real titan of journalism who plied his trade at the Chronicle.

For all history lovers, local or not

These are short and fun to listen to, and you will learn something every time you spin back in this audible time machine whether or not you are from the Bay Area. King Kaufman has the perfect century-spanning voice and great tidbits of historical detail, plus archival material from the Chronicle. I love the one on the Golden Spike.
