Tales of Two Cities #2: All about the Benjamins

on February 25, 2016

Howdy Listeners,

This week on Tales of Two Cities we take a look at four unique businesses and how they reflect what’s happening in Richmond and Oakland’s economies. From a legendary deli in the heart of Temescal on the brink of shutting down because of rising rents, to a local factory that hires an unexpected workforce; and from a man who depends on year-round love to sell his flowers, to a woman who makes fairy wings out of her house.

Don’t miss contributor Matt Beagle and this week’s host Katherine Rose discussing what could have been their last sandwiches at Genova deli while they ponder what the loss of that experience would mean and introduce our reporters’ adventures from this past week.
