Science writer Annalee Newitz fulfilled our geek dreams by sharing a story of how Muni is actually on the side of righteousness when an obnoxious driver gets in its way. I particularly love that she recounted the early days of being in the tech industry in the Bay Area. Here’s the video of her terrific story as told at Muni Diaries Live on April 5.

Missed this show? We’ve got the spring show recap and recap of all of our past shows to tide you over.

Video: Gina Gold’s One Very Special BART Ride

Every single person in the room at Muni Diaries Live was hooked when Gina Gold opens her story by saying, “I have a BART story. I’m not proud of it because usually people are telling stories about a person not acting right, but I AM that person.” Here’s the video of Gina telling her you-wouldn’t-believe-it story that started out with a perfect morning in a Beale Street penthouse.

Let’s just say that Gina’s story makes these BART twerk-a-holics look like junior varsity players.

So put your headphones on and enjoy Gina’s BART story. Oh, and it’s Gina’s birthday this month. Go to her TMI Storytelling show next week in Berkeley and give her a high five in person.
