The Chronicles of San Diego Podcast - Episode 5
Welcome back to the Chronicles of San Diego Podcast.
This is a show all about San Diego and the various different individuals, businesses, events, civic and cultural issues that represent the spirit of America’s Finest City.
On today’s episode I’m joined by recent retiree Hank Ramirez. We talk about his role as a community activist, his work with the County of San Diego, what it means to be a gay man in today’s world and what drives Hank to action now that he’s retired. Hank provides some first-hand insight into how the County of San Diego responded to last summer’s Hepatitis A outbreak, and recounts his start as an activist with HIV/AIDS organizations here in town. We also spend some time talking about the major issues impacting San Diego today and what we can do in the present to affect the future we want to see.
This episode was recorded in the back room of Bay City Brewing, as are many of the podcasts I record. Big thank you to Ben and Greg and Scott for letting me barge in and bring strangers behind scenes.
