Broke-Ass Stuart (S4E21P1)

Storied: San Francisco

Let's try this again. Back in Season 1, ​we met our friend Stuart Schuffman, aka, Broke-Ass Stuart, for a recording at The Willows. We have to admit: What we did for the podcast back then is much different than what we do now. Let's just say that the episode is more about Stuart's whacky San Francisco stories than about his total being. Fast-forward to this summer, and we sat down with this affable SF character at The Wooden Nickel to hear his life story. Check back Thursday for Part 2 and more from Broke-Ass Stuart. We recorded this podcast at The Wooden Nickel in July 2021. Photography by Michelle Kilfeather

301 - Saying Goodbye to the Hemlock Tavern w/ Broke-Ass Stuart

Bitch Talk

Another one of our favorite SF dive bars is closing on October 6. The Hemlock Tavern is near and dear to our hearts at Bitch Talk. Not only have we spent many a night drinking and listening to local, live music in the musty back room, we also celebrated our 100th episode (200 episodes ago?!?) with a live event in said musty room. We thought we'd honor the place with travel writer, blogger, ex-Sf mayoral candidate, and all around good guy to drink with: Broke-Ass Stuart. You won't want to miss his eloquent ode to the bar entitled "The Hemlock Tavern is Trying to Kill You" (spoiler: he means it in a good way).  If you believe in the importance of art, creating community, writing articles, and stirring shit up, support Broke-Ass Stuart on patreon!
