Do you love San Francisco? (radio interview)

Whether you live near or far, anyone who loves San Francisco should enjoy this interview I did with my friend Gary Kamiya, author of Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco, which has been topping Bay Area best-seller lists. The one-hour interview was done live on stage at the Commonwealth Club and aired on public radio station KALW, 91.7FM: http://kalw.org/post/gary-kamiyas-cool-gray-city-love/.

    I’ve spent time in San Francisco and would love to be able to live there. Unfortunately, rents within the city are like NYC. The last time I was there I spent a lot of time in downtown (Market St. Height/Ashbury, Chinatown, etc.), and I was amazed in a way to see the income gaps in the same area. Literally on one block lots of successful urban professionals. Then on the next, lots of homeless people. Having been homeless twice myself (not by choice), that bothers me. SF is a tolerant city in many ways. However, it needs to deal with the income gap.

By now, almost everyone knows what Edward Snowden did: leak top secret documents revealing that the US government was spying on hundreds of millions of people around the world. But if you want to know why Snowden did it, the way he did it, you need to know the stories of two other men.


The first is Thomas Drake, who blew the whistle on the very same surveillance ten years before Snowden did and got crushed. The other is The Third Man, a former senior Pentagon official who comes forward in this book for the first time to describe how his superiors repeatedly broke the law to punish Drake—and unwittingly taught Snowden how to evade their clutches.
