Del Seymour's arrival in San Francisco was one wild ride.
In this podcast, Del describes his literal first hours in The City. He touches on nearly two decades of drug addiction and sets the scene at a park in the Tenderloin where he was inspired to sober up a little more than a decade ago.
Around that time, he started Tenderloin Walking Tours, inspired in part by Del's time driving cabs in San Francisco. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they've shifted their focus to developing a virtual version of the tour, which they hope to have ready for folks soon. Please see the clip below.
Del also talks about launching Code Tenderloin, and lets us know ways to get involved.
He ends this episode with his love letter, not to San Francisco, but to the Tenderloin.
We recorded this podcast on Zoom during quarantine in San Francisco in August 2020.
