Add to Calendar
San Francisco is currently at the center of so many debates: the front lines of technological development, the battle to fight gentrification, to house the homeless, to be the beacon of liberal values to a country shrouded in darkness emanating from the other pole of the Country in Washington D.C.
Our Mayor came up through housing projects, the non-profit world, and elected office. She will be in conversation with one of the great media personalities and truth finders in the country - editor at large of Record and New York Times Columnist Kara Swisher for a live taping of Kara's Recode Decode podcast.
