Such a great podcast. I totally relate. And especially heavily related with a recent episode with Ericka. I’m from Fairfield, and it’s a balancing act of either Bay Area or Sac living. Love the show, can’t wait for more from Ericka! Missing your voice Devin!

Used to be a great show. Somewhere along the social upheaval of 2016-current the company took a side and reports one sidedly with major bias. Sad.

I’ll miss you Devin Katayama the MVP host!!! Amazing local SF podcast at just the right length for locals and expats alike. I always learn something new, cool, and interesting!

I’m so glad I found this podcast! As a Bay Area native and resident it’s so important to understand what’s happening, and the historical context for it. Love the host, the stories, and this narrative way of presenting the news.

I used to like this podcast and appreciated the deep dives into local issues. Lately, the topics have all been social injustice of the week. It’s not journalism when only one side is presented. This podcast, and the left, are so obsessed with race and oppression.

I’m just going to leave it at that—this show chooses meaningful content, rigorously researched, and presented in ways that move us to think, be and do something about parts of life that matter deeply.

I return to this podcast day after day to feel connected and knowledgeable about this place where I have lived for over 50 years and still don’t know as well as I should.
Mom, Inc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/21
I love this podcast. The team always finds interesting topics with a new spin. Knowing more about the area where I live is invaluable.

Don’t listen to this podcast if you’re looking for a balanced reporting. The stories are done from a social justice, leftist perspective. There is a very clear editorial bent to every episode (namely that capitalism is evil). I nearly fell out of my chair when I heard the host used to do stand up...Read full review »

I really can’t say how much this podcast helps me keep my sanity. Without the morning commute, daily sights sounds and smells of a before-times day and little ways we get news throughout the day it’s so easy to fall into your own oblivion. The Bay reminds me that there’s something bigger than me....Read full review »

Thank you Devin, your voice is great and I enjoy the subjects and your delivery of information about our wonderful Bay Area and people who make it unique. I live in Vallejo. (these kids are fearless) Great coverage of our struggle here with police and community. I have been in the Bay Area...Read full review »

I love this podcast!
Dusty Tattoo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/21/20
I’ve learned so much from listening to The Bay. Can’t recommend it enough. The hosts are so good at storytelling about people and communities in the Bay Area, and often bring out hidden or underserved voices you don’t find in other major news outlets.
hshfjeneicj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/20
Every area in the country needs this type of quality reporting.
Aaron Quinn via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/20
This wonderful team gives the people of The Bay a voice, and shines a light on the issues and happenings impacting us.
MrsEC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/20
This podcast informs you on tons of things that go on in the Bay Area. Very in-depth in so many areas. My brother who moved away from the Bay Area 6 years ago listens just to keep him informed on what’s going on in the bay.
bubbles47 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/31/20
Devin + Ericka + Alan and the entire team at The Bay podcast are ~phenomenal~ at getting to the heart of a local story. If you’re tired of reading/watching local news just touch the surface here in the SF Bay Area, LISTEN to KQED’s The Bay. Don’t see a Bay Area story being told? just ask this...Read full review »

Born and raised in the bay (although some wouldn’t consider Petaluma the bay) and I have loooooved every single episode of this podcast, no joke. They tackle everything from social/racial justice, to highlighting local leaders, to life (um episodes about BART!!? Yes???!!), art, and culture. The...Read full review »

Love Mr Branch. Knew him from Montera Middle School. Thank you for sharing his story and wonderful work
Scooter11! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/20
From issues such as housing to social equity, Devin and team have done an awesome job creating and producing the content of this podcast. I particularly enjoyed the 5 part series How We Got Here that talks about the various facets of the current economic and labor conditions. Keep up the...Read full review »

The five part series “how we got here” is fantastic. Can not recommend it enough.
Low71 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/12/20
How many businesses are now being allowed to discriminate against homeless and poor by refusing cash during a pandemic? I’d like a show on that if possible.
mihyphyke via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/27/20
Love the show, hopefully you guys fix the download issue where the entire back catalog redownloaded soon
Spiffandbiff via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/20
This is a must if you’re from The Bay. Straight up. Lets freakin go! ⛽️
Gas Light Apparel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/20/20
...everything having to be race related. Seriously, once you let go of your anger and not look at EVERYTHING through a racial lens, the world opens up. Also, “Laninx”? Enough already millennials, you can’t re-brand a race with an x. Maybe it’s just me being 42 but it looks foolish. I have an...Read full review »

Thank you for unifying the voices and communities within the Bay.
Asarien via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/19
Objective reporting of facts that impact the community. This podcast is fun, very interesting, and informative.
Food admirer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/16/19
Though I’m on the east coast, I listen to this excellent podcast to feel in touch with the Bay Area, where my grown children live. Its coverage of area issues is both granular and widely relatable. I look forward to every episode.
nichcnm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/19
Excellent perspectives on current events relevant to the Bay Area. Well produced, well sourced, well reported. Thanks for helping keep us aware of important issues.
fnordy mcfnord via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/14/19
Can you please not subsidize and support the terrible regime of the CCP and its puppets in Macau? The fact that you’re running Beijing-sponsored ads for Hong Kong’s neighbor that capitulated to the PROC while Hong Kongers are fighting for the survival of their democracy is a bit gross.
Sleepyjl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/29/19
Maybe it’s a sign of the times we live in, but most of the topics are real downers. I like to listen to pods that brighten up my morning - or at least don’t put me in a bummed out mood. But from local shootings to the homeless and housing crises, it feels like only 1 out of 5 episodes have...Read full review »

The Bay keeps it’s local and keeps us in the know... but can we all also admit how cute the host is?
Hamid85 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/19
Ericka Cruz Guevarra absolutely makes my mornings!
poddconvert via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/07/19
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a year and I am confident that I am far more informed of the issues and challenges in the bay.
PipeliningRocks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/19
Great mix of in-the-field and in-studio coverage of hyper-local, Bay Area topics. Keep up the good work!
SFEileen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/19
If you want easy to follow, brief and relevant reporting of what’s happening around The Bay Area, look no further! This podcast is my friendly nugget of investigative local journalism. Thank you Devin, Erika and the team at The Bay for all you bring to us! Keep up the great work!!!
yellikeh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/07/19
High production values and good stories. Similar to my other favs- CA report and the Daily but closer to home.
1245ww via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/19
Love how they focus on the biggest, most consequential news of the Bay Area and really explain things deeply.
@hubertallen via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/29/18
I really appreciate being able to feel informed about the different parts of the San Francisco Bay Area
BenjaminMeyers via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/18
Excellent nuggets of timely, relevant Bay Area news analysis. I like that it questions prevailing wisdom in the area. Thought provoking!
Dottieminerva via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/18
Very cool podcast and great info for us Bay Area residents . Let’s u know what’s going on I. The Bay while we live our busy lives.
ABELICIOU$ via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/23/18
Like The Daily, but about half the length and focused on local Bay Area issues. Really want podcasts like this all around the country.
Allen Erickson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/15/18

Great sound, mixing and production. You can tell The Bay Team puts a lot of work into each episode. Keep up the great work!
luna0314 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/18
This show is doing something really creative and important. It’s distinct from the station’s sound, well-produced and engaging. I cannot imagine how much work goes into it everyday! Keep it up!

The Bay is part of my morning commute now!
RawTRex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/18
so it gets a 5! Congrats!
MnWreckingCrew via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/30/18
This has quickly become part of my morning routine. Devin and his guests and amazing producers are fresh, fun, and feel like my friends. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a quick, sharp look at what’s happening in the Bay - not the headlines, but what’s Really happening.
