Joe will be discussing his latest cover story for SF Weekly, "In Transit: From S.F. to L.A. via Public Transportation."
It's a first-person account of Eskenazi's journey from S.F. to L.A., using only municipal public transit. The route was laid out by 24-year-old transit nerd Matthew Nelson, but Eskenazi was the first to complete it.
As Eskenazi explains in the article:
Nelson's 32-hour, 14-transfer trek from this city to Los Angeles seemed crazy, too, at first glance. Going over it again and again, however -- nah, still crazy. But it was too late. I was smitten. Just as the mountaineer George Mallory famously uttered "Because it's there" as his rationale for attempting Mount Everest, the notion of leaving the S.F.-L.A. route unchallenged ate away at me. I can't climb a mountain. But I can sit in a bus.The show airs at 7 p.m. in Los Angeles, and we'll post a link to download as soon as we get our hands on one.
