Join us for a special edition of the monthly podcasters' meetup featuring Liam O’Donoghue of the local history program East Bay Yesterday. Following a discussion about the origins and mission of the show East Bay Express called “the best podcast about the East Bay,” Liam will be joined by Oakland librarians Dorothy Lazard and Kathleen DiGiovanni. The topic of conversation will be myths, misconceptions and legends of Oakland history. Will they be able to untangle fact from fiction? Come find out!
