A must for any denizen of San Francisco!

Even though I grew up in San Francisco’s Richmond District, I have learned so much more by listening to the Outside Lands podcast! Anyone who lives in The City with enjoy this, but it is an absolute must for Richmond and Sunset District dwellers.

good people if San Francisco ,

Great history podcast

The West side of San Francisco is one of the most interesting areas to live and learn about its rich history. Nicole and all of her hosts are very entertaining and serious about historical insights in the area. I've learned so much about the outside lands area with this podcast.
I'd love to hear more about the surfing and ocean related history.

Love the podcast keep up the great work!
