Sparkletack is Back!


My favorite podcast , Sparkletack – the San Francisco history podcast, as told by a distant relative of Mark Twain, is back after a longish hiatus. If you, like me, have a long commute and are looking for something to listen to and enjoy a good tale, subscribe to Richard’s podcast.

The latest episode, The Crocker Spite Fence, is about the 40-foot tall fence built by the railroad baron Charles Crocker around the one fellow who would not sell so that Crocker could build his hill top mansion on Nob Hill.

  1. I cannot open your #57 and need the information about the Reber Plan that you include. The site was up yesterday but not today.

  2. Hi John,

    I just sent Richard, the publisher of the site, an email to let him know his site was down. Hopefully he can give it a swift kick and get it running again!
