Talking Headways Podcast: Trinidad, Transit Dates, and Dive Bars
This week I chat with my good friend and Bay Area affordable housing developer Ed Parillon. We talk about transportation in Ed’s original home of Trinidad (which has an early busway) and the American influence on the island starting during the second World War.
Ed tells me about his favorite world city and what he thinks about being a parent in San Francisco. We also discuss how we first met on a “transit date” set up by friends, and why it took so long to build a small multifamily building in San Francisco’s Mission District. Finally, we talk about the disappearance of dive bars in big cities and why they need regulars to keep going strong.
