Storied: San Francisco interviews 48 Hills publisher Marke B. (that’s me)

Thanks to the local podcast for featuring my story, through Detroit roots and wild SF arrival to the Bay Guardian and the Stud.

Storied: San Francisco has been recording terrific podcasts of local characters and everyday neighbors, and I’m honored to now be counted among them. If you’ve ever been curious about my story—from being raised in Detroit and London through hopping a train to the bay Area, scoring a dream job at Green Apple Books, wild ’90s SF nights at the height of AIDS, Gay.com and Web 1.0, and becoming a legacy keeper of the Bay Guardian and the Stud—including why I think what we’re doing at 48 Hills is so important, please take a listen.

There’s probably waaay more than you need to know, and maybe a few giggles along the way. Anyway, the story of how a queer Arab American from the Midwest (and Southern Ontario) got into this crazy SF media business via nightlife and music may be of interest. Thanks to Jeff Hunt and the Storied SF crew, and check out all their great podcasts!
