Tales of Two Cities #4: Changes
on March 24, 2016
Today’s episode is all about change: people and places going through powerful transformations. Tune in to hear about the ever shifting cannabis industry in Oakland, and the promise of big money as the legal framework regulating it shifts. Also, we have the story of an Oakland business that suddenly had to change its name when international events conspired against it, and we report live from Hood Slam, Oakland’s pro wrestling event which turns gender stereotypes—and actual people—on their head.
