Hear Here: Meet Carlisle Haworth & Diana Hartman

San Francisco resident Diana Hartman remembers the lengths to which her family would go to accommodate her childhood distaste for cheese.

We've been meeting some of our neighbors in San Francisco and Oakland through our new community storytelling project, Hear Here: A Pop-Up Radio Project. Our Hear Here producers have been popping up in libraries, food banks, and schools to capture snapshots of life in these two cities, and we've been airing some of these stories on Crosscurrents. Hear Here met the two following San Francisco residents, Carlisle Haworth and Diana Hartman at the Polish Club in the Mission. They shared these stories about food from their childhood.
