In Episode 61 of The Big Event, Jesse Thorn, host of NPR's "Bullseye," owner of the Maximum Fun podcasting network and San Francisco native, comes to the archive podcasting studio. We also invited his dad, protester, activist and frequent Chronicle article subject Lee Thorn. Jesse talks about his foundational San Francisco years at Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, building his podcast network and why he still reps the Bay Area hard - even though he lives in Los Angeles. Lee Thorn and Kevin Fagan talk about Lee's activism, including a trip they took to Laos to install the internet in a remote village. And we learn how art and service intersect with the father and son.
Produced by Peter Hartlaub. Theme music is "The Tide Will Rise" by the Sunset Shipwrecks off their album "Community."
