[Contains explicit content] It might seem like the San Francisco Bay Area is turning into a shortsighted technotopia, but on this episode of Sounds Like America, you'll learn that the progressive crown jewel of the U.S. has so much more to offer than eco-conscious startups hell-bent on disrupting how you get your take-out. The Talk's Aisha Tyler, who grew up in San Francisco and Oakland, plays host on this comedic tour of the Bay Area — where gentrification, sexual diversity, and aging hippies abound. So grab your freak flag and get ready to dive into the funk of the Bay.

This is a fantastic episode and so true to the feel of San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area. If you are a native you'll enjoy hearing this and connecting personal experiences. If you are just curious about the Bay Area it's informative but also lighthearted.
I'm glad I listened to this episode because it really did a nice job of reminding me why I love the Bay Area, which is important, especially since it can be easy to lose sight of what makes it so beautiful.
