We've been wanting to do this episode for years.
826 Valencia is a non-profit whose aim is to help young people write creatively. They’ve operated out of the space at the address in their name since the early 2000s. For Part 1, we sat down with 826’s Director of Volunteer Engagement Kavitha Lotun and Pirate Supply Store Manager Byron Weiss to discuss their respective stories of moving to San Francisco and the origins and mission of 826 Valencia.
Check back next week for Part 2 of our talk with Kavitha and Byron.
We recorded this podcast at 826 Valencia in March 2023.
