Taler Nicols is a fifth-generation San Franciscan. Her family here dates back to Potrero Hill when it was called Goat Hill.
In this podcast, Taler, who is a tattooer now, talks about growing up in bars and restaurants in North Beach, thanks to her man-about-town dad. She ends the episode talking about neighborhoods and the changes in San Francisco this decade, ending on a positive, hopeful note.
Check back Thursday for Part 2, when Taler will share the story of how she became a tattoo artist.
We recorded this podcast at Vesuvio Cafe in August 2019.
