When nudity became an everyday occurrence at the Castro's Jane Warner Plaza, San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener felt the situation had gotten out of hand. Now, he has proposed legislation requiring people to wear clothing most places in the city, or pay a fine. Is the proposal simply common sense, as supporters argue? Or does it criminalize nudity and hamper freedom of expression?

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Scott Wiener, San Francisco supervisor for District 8
  • Dan Schreiber, staff writer for the San Francisco Examiner
  • Daniel Bergerac, Castro district business owner
  • George Davis, nudist activist who ran for mayor of San Francisco four times, and has been affectionately dubbed "Nude Yoga Guy" by the media
