#DamienTalks Episode 26: Roger Rudick

Today, #DamienTalks with Roger Rudick, a long-time contributor to various Streetsblogs and the incoming editor of Streetsblog San Francisco.

We promise this is the last picture of Roger we're going to use for awhile. On the California Zephyr Silver Lariat Car last April.

In the interview we cover varied ground including how Rudick’s world travels inform his writing at Streetsblog and elsewhere, his views on some of the major stories breaking in the Bay Area, and some get-to-know-you questions including “have you ever ridden Critical Mass?”

If you’re just dying to learn more about Roger, read our “Welcome, Roger” post and yesterday’s “Hi, I’m Roger” post at Streetsblog San Francisco.

Given that this podcast is occurring during our pledge drive, I would be remiss if I didn’t post the links to the donation pages for Streetsblog San Francisco and Streetsblog California.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter@damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.

Thanks for listening. You can download the episode at the #DamienTalks homepage on Libsyn.
