The Big Event


Feb 19, 2018

Episode 17 of The Big Event podcast is a celebration of “The Birds,” the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock thriller starring Tippi Hedren as a San Francisco socialite who finds avian terror in Bodega Bay. San Francisco style reporter Tony Bravo and Chronicle columnist and Alta Journal digital editor/writer Beth Spotswood are guests. The Big Event is hosted by Peter Hartlaub. In this episode, we talk about the fashion of "The Birds," the compelling cast and discuss whether a pack of birds indeed could wipe out the human race. (Or even a single person.)

Recorded in the San Francisco Chronicle basement archive.

Theme music is "The Tide Will Rise" by the Sunset Shipwrecks. Opening signature by Leah Garchik.
