Hip-hop, hills, and art drew Jeremy Fish to San Francisco from 3,000 miles away.
In this episode, the prolific and iconic SF artist traces his family line back to both grandfathers. One worked with his hands to make art; the other was a salesman. Jeremy sees bits of himself in both ancestors.
He was born in Albany, New York, and spent most of his youth in Saratoga Springs. When it came time to go to college (in 1994), not only was The City less expensive than Boston and New York, but Jeremy also had one hell of a trip out here, which he retells in the podcast.
Check back Thursday for Part 2 to hear more of Jeremy's story.
We recorded this podcast at the Doolan-Larson building at Haight and Ashbury in October 2020.
