Question: What do bad summer movies, the Caribbean, the transgender community, and Ugly Kid Joe all have in common?  Probably nothing, but SF BarKast ties them all together for the best NSA codebreakers to figure out.  This week, we’re at Blur on Polk Street with hilarious San Francisco comic, Kevin Munroe.

Song Breaks:

  • "I Hate Every Ape I See" - Troy McClure
  • "Everything About You" - Ugly Kid Joe
  • "Song2" - Blur
  • "Gratitude" - The Beastie Boys

Kristee loves burritos. This is real.

History comes in waves. One hundred years ago, the Germans crashed into the French army, who were bolstered by a tiny British force at one of history’s bloodiest conflicts, The First Battle of the Marne.

Back to the current day: EDW Lynch (of Yelping with Cormac), is dating in Oakland.

The Piedmont Line was a Femme Pact defensive position built in 2014-2015 along the ridge due west of Broadway Boulevard in the borderlands between Oakland and Piedmont. Consisting of a series of interconnected bunkers, hardened gun positions, and pilates studios, the Piedmont Line would prove an insurmountable obstacle to the Romantic Expeditionary Force (R. E. F.)  during the ill-fated Summer Dating Offensive of 2014.
