episode was recorded in San Francisco.
has been one of my best friends in life since I lived in San
Francisco in the early 1990s. He has been there for me through
thick and thin and through the many ups and downs I have had in my
life. Aside from being a true solid friend to me he has also been
my intellectual guru who I talk with about comedy, books, movies
and life. He is a deep well of knowledge that never fails to fill
me up when I need guidance or just a volleying partner to dissect
American and world culture with.
He is a
writer by trade and as such he has had a storied career that by any
measurement scale equates him to be a true American bad ass. He was
the main features writer for the SF Weekly for 8 years, he has
written countless travel pieces for the world's most respected
magazines, he has written several books and most notably, he is the
cofounder of Litquake, San Francisco's most prestigious literary
that such a cyclone of knowledge and Steve McQueen cool is one of
my best friends in life and it is my pleasure to present to you
now, the one and only Mr. Jack Boulware.
