Ed Wolf worked for three years on San Francisco General Hospital's Ward 5A, where AIDS patients came when the epidemic first hit. Part 2 of Ed's podcast details two stories from his time in Ward 5A. One is a story of an unexpected kindness Ed experienced after crossing a line he wasn't supposed to cross. The second is a tale of survival and heroism that should surprise you.
Check back tomorrow for Part 3, when Ed will share the story of moving to San Francisco just before AIDS happened.
We recorded this podcast at Ed's house in the Mission District in June 2018. Listen to Part 1 here.
