For Patrick O'Malley, music and politics evolved side-by-side.
In this podcast, Patrick talks about how he came to understand housing policy, both in San Francisco and statewide in California, through his day job. He goes on to tell us about some public-transit advocacy work he's done in light of Google busses and ride share companies in the city. He ends the episode talking about the various music projects he's been part of, including his solo act, much of which involves political and social commentary.
Be sure to listen to the entire episode—after the outro, you can hear one of Patrick's songs.
If you missed Part 1, when Patrick talked about growing up in Southern California and coming to San Francisco in the late-1990s, please go back and check that out.
We recorded this podcast at Patrick's home in the Inner Richmond in July 2019.
