The Big Event


Apr 13, 2018

Episode 23 of The Big Event podcast is a rundown of Total Muni 2018, with a date set (April 30, 2018), a route (mostly) completed thanks in large part to Chronicle reader Jerry White, and a plan to end the route with a beer at the Giants night game. A panicked Chronicle columnist Heather Knight and host Peter Hartlaub talk about their daunting attempt to ride every Muni line in one day – replicating the 1980 stunt completed by current Giants CEO and president Larry Baer and his friend Andy Coblentz.

Recorded in the San Francisco Chronicle’s basement archive.

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