VOICES: River City, Episode 100: Milestones and exorcism

It’s our 100th episode! We take some time to look back on our work during an absolutely wild year, and to thank the godfather of the VOICES: River City podcast, Anthony Siino, for his pioneering work in the first 22 episodes (seriously, go back and listen to them — they’re works of art).

Then we get into some current events.

Did you hear the one about the Bay Area archbishop exorcising the spot where a Junipero Serra statue was torn down over the summer? As that went down, the city of San Francisco held discussions on renaming 44 of its public schools schools, including ones named after George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Dianne Feinstein. (Mayor London Breed didn’t seem to approve.

Speaking of Feinstein, the California Democratic senator is now facing calls to step down after her buddy-buddy behavior with GOP colleagues at the Amy Coney Barrett hearing. Has anyone else seen a resurgence of this SNL skit in the last couple of days? We have. 

Thanks for listening, defund the police and, as always:
