The Big Event


Feb 23, 2018

Episode 18 of The Big Event podcast features host Peter Hartlaub and Chronicle columnist Heather Knight interviewing Larry Baer about his 1980 college-era “Total Muni Experience” stunt, where he and friend Andy Coblentz rode every Muni line in one day. Baer tries to convince Hartlaub and Knight to try repeating the stunt in 2018. He also talks about his early love of baseball and brief career as an A’s broadcaster – answering the question: “If the Giants broadcast crew all got sick on the road, could you take the mic as the emergency catcher?”
