This week, we're joined by punk rock and free speach legend Jello Biafra. As the former frontman of the seminal punk group Dead Kennedys, Biafra fused political agitprop with humor, changing the face of punk rock. He also ran for mayor of San Francisco, gaining thousands of votes with a platform that included a requirement that businessmen downtown wear clown suits and that policemen be elected. Since his time with the DKs, he's become a free speach leader, travelling the country giving spoken word performances. He's also the founder of Alternative Tentacles Records.

We spoke with Biafra during our live show at SF Sketchfest in San Francisco.

Podcast: Danny Hoch Live in San Francisco

The third in our series of podcasts from our January live show at SF Sketchfest.

Danny Hoch is a multiple Obie award-winning playwright and actor, and the founder of the Hip-Hop Theater Festival. His newest show, "Takin Over," is currently in its premiere run at Berkeley Rep in Berkeley, California. The show examines the gentrification of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, using character monologues from a variety of community members. It is way, way better than that lame description makes it sound. Hoch talked about being a native New Yorker, how he feels when he's looking at the organic produce in Whole Foods, and how all the women he meets in New York seem to have come to the city from somewhere else to "find themselves."
