Today, we're also joined by Harry Campbell, who blogs as The Rideshare Guy, to play Silicon Tally. And then we talk to Laura A. Ackley, historian and author of "San Francisco's Jewel City: The Panama-Pacific International Exposition of 1915," about the first transcontinental telephone call ever made.
