"Frisco," the word San Franciscans love to hate -- or do they? KQED's Bay Curious podcast recently took up the question of why Bay Area locals are so divided over the nickname. We'll talk to KQED producer Vinnee Tong about what her reporting on the moniker and the city's relationship with it. And we want to hear from you: How do you feel about "Frisco"? Do love it, hate it or are you happy as long as no one says "San Fran"?
