In the 1970s, San Francisco emerged from the summer of love into a much darker period. From the assassinations of George Moscone and Harvey Milk to the massacre at Jonestown to the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, the city was rocked with calamities. Journalist David Talbot takes on the tumultuous years from 1967 to 1982 in his book "Season of the Witch: Enchantment, Terror, and Deliverance in in the City of Love." We listen back to a portion of our interview with David Talbot, founder and former editor in chief of Salon.

Host: Michael Krasny
