Brian Murphy: A Life in Sport

Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In partnership with Hinterland.

Broadcaster Brian Murphy is almost as well-known to Irish sports fans as to San Franciscans. He is the sage and erudite 'US Murph' of the Second Captains podcast. As well as four hours a day 'on air' on KNBR Radio's 'Murph and Mac' morning show he somehow finds time to write books! Six so far, three devoted to the exploits of the World Series-winning Giants of 2010, 2012 and 2014. He will be in conversation with fellow (transatlantic) Giants' nut, Irish journalist Myles Dungan.
