Lincoln Mitchell's family came to San Francisco from New York City in the 1970s.
In Part 1, Lincoln talks about growing up in The City and being a fan of the Yankees and the Giants. He discusses how he came to love baseball, his family's and his own sense of politics, schools he went to here, and both the differences and similarities between New York and our city.
In his book, San Francisco: Year Zero, Lincoln ties together threads of the Giants, punk rock, and the political upheaval that hit The City in November 1978.
In Part 2, Lincoln talks at some length about those three topics: baseball, counterculture, and the assassinations and their aftermath of Harvey Milk and George Moscone.
