So they're curling in Oakland...

It's been a long and sometimes complicated journey, but there is a curling-specific facility in the Bay Area. On this episode, we're joined by two of the people who led the charge—Kate Garfinkel and Adriana Camarena—to talk about how things are going, their upcoming grand opening, and how they are working to weave the curling club into the fabric of the community.
