An Interview With One of London’s Most Well-Known Black Cabbies
"I'm Tom Hutley. I'm 31 years old, London taxi driver. So in 2020, I had a bit of an identity crisis. Of course, you know, pandemic happens, stay at home, you're not allowed to go to work. So I'm thinking, well, if I can't drive my taxi, what am I? What can I do? So I got on YouTube and I was like, I'm just going to make videos about taxi driving, you know, the nuanced stuff, you know, what are passengers like? 75 ,000 people subscribe to Tom's videos, and over 6 million people have watched him driving around London. Most people who do watch Tom are surprised by something. They are surprised that he entirely navigates London without a GPS. Some cab drivers do use a GPS in their cab, but it's more used as a tool. We're not being directed by it. My analogy I would always use is that if you look at a professional chef, they can go into the kitchen, they can make any sort of like, you know, standard kind of recipe, and they can just do it by like intuition. I'll have a pinch of that, I'll do a bit of this, or I'm cooking for this person, I might change the recipe a little bit. Whereas the sat nav, using a sat nav is like going from a cookbook. We can all cook from a cookbook, but it might not turn out as well as what professional chef does. And the professional chefs can be more efficient, they might be able to get it done sooner, have that bit of flair about it. And that's what it's like being a taxi driver. From day to day, the same route I will take one day might not be the same the next day, even 10 minutes apart, you know, because something might have happened on the street, which then influences a small corner of London. And then that then has knock on effects across the rest of London. So how on earth does Tom navigate 25 ,000 streets in London without needing a GPS? Well, he's studied something called the knowledge. So I'll just introduce the knowledge of London. It's capital T, capital K. It's fascinating, even just the name of it just sounds so like prestigious, the knowledge and I'm like, wow. And it's the normalised process examination that us London cab drivers has had since around 1851. Its routes go back to the great exhibition held in Hyde Park during the reign of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. And basically the cab drivers, we've had taxis in London since the 17th century, we was first licensed by Oliver Cromwell, but taxi drivers would frequently get drunk, they would crash their carts of horses and stuff. It was astonishing that we still have a taxi trade today based upon those Hackney carriage drivers of the 18th, 19th century. So they brought in this formalised process called the knowledge whereby the drivers had to learn the streets that they were driving on. So if someone said taxi driver, take me to, they would know exactly where they were going. But yeah, effectively a character building exercise because of how long it would take to get your badge. In those sort of days back in the times of the great exhibition, it might have taken a year or so to do the formalised study to then eventually get to a badge. In my time, it took three years and the average sits around between two and four years. And as we can allude to that the knowledge basically involves learning just about anywhere within London within a six mile radius of Charing Cross, which is roughly the geographical centre of

"Even decades ago, to me it seems like it just was finished. A total of 36 bridges will be fixed. Marnie pike reports on transportation and politics for the daily Herald or weekly column is called in transit. You should sign up for that, especially if you're a commuter. We welcome her back to a double dash. Marnie, will you please explain to my listeners? How long and how bad? Will this get? Well, listen, thank you, John. To their credit I dot bought in a bunch of transportation reporters this week and we got to talk to actual engineers and they did not sugarcoat things. It's going to be a big deal for Kennedy drivers. It's going to take three years. It'll cost a 150 million and there it's going to be tough. So I like the 150 million because of generally goes to the construction trade, so I'm happy about that. Okay, that's my tax dollars. Hopefully well spend not too much wasted. So a year and a half inbound first, then Alban from the junction into downtown as am I understanding? Yeah, there's a lot of moving parts, no pun intended. They've got to rehabilitate 36 bridges. Between Eden's and Ohio. And they're also going to modernize the gates on the reversible lanes. And they are going to repaint Hubbard's cave, which is that's going to take a lot of paint. So in the first year, all right, they're going to start with the inbound lanes, and they'll be like closing the two of them first, and that's going to probably. And drivers will be able to use the reversible lanes. So there'll be like four in each direction. And then in July, they switched to the right lanes. Or the right lines closed and all that lanes reopen. But that means that coming outbound when I'm done with work downtown here when I leave just after 6 o'clock, I won't be able to utilize those express lanes outbound until they're done with the entire inbound project. Yes. Yes. I know. I know. And in 2024, they're going to do the reversible and then in 2025, they are going to do the open lanes. So yeah, it's not going to be fun. It seems to me, Marnie, we just completed the Kennedy. It seems like it was just a couple of years ago. We completed the last rebuild. Am I wrong or am I just old? Well, you know, what everybody was talking about was the fact that the burn interchange finally wrapped up, right? And that was pretty painful. But they are saying that actually the whole project is long overdue. Those bridge decks really need fixing. So it's just got a drive and Barrett. I've just memorized where every single pothole is on the Kennedy junction in downtown out to the junction and the hedonist too. What about the major streets that travel under the Kennedy express failure? Are they going to be closed or because sometimes debris falls and there's trouble with construction? What are they going to do about those arteries? Well, they are going to try to keep everything open. They're going to try to keep all the ramps open. However, they said there may be some ramp closures. And they are going to do protective shielding underneath the bridges to capture debris. So that is good to know. I guess, I guess. Well, here we go again, let me ask you a question. I'm going to turn this out to my listeners too. Have you ever quit a job or even retired because the traffic and the commute just became untenable, unbearable. And was that a good decision? How about you, Marnie? You know, I have had some horrendous commutes from Hyde Park

"The faculty of Hyde Park high school. I thought I'd start off by telling you what stress is. And driving over here, I always have trouble finding Hyde Park high school. Margaret Ennis, who lives close by, decided that she would lead me through. To get here. So I was following her and she came on a major street to a light that had just turned yellow. Well, she went through it. By the time I came to it, it was red. And I said, oh, the hell with it. And I just drove through. Well, within moments, there were the blinking strobe blue and white lights. And I thought to myself, oh no. So clearly I had to pull over, and I thought I would endear myself to the officer by getting out of the car. And he just shouted at me, get back in the car. So I did, and opened the window, and I said, well, look, I'm doctor Benson. I'm on the way to Hyde Park high school to talk about stress and the person I'm following went through a like. And I was wrong, I'm sorry. And he said, okay, next time, don't do it again. Very sternly. So that was the beginning of the day. And I thought it was a wonderful example of what stress is because my heart rate when those lights went going was the fight or flight response. When we're under stress, our body puts forth adrenaline, epinephrine, noradrenaline, norepinephrine. These are internal hormones. So what happens? It spills over into symptoms. For example, physical symptoms. There are headaches indigestion, stomachaches, sweaty palms, sleeping difficulties, dizziness, back pain, tight neck and shoulders, racing heart, restlessness, tiredness, ringing in the ears, all of these. Can be stress related. The body possesses an inborn response that's opposite to the fight or flight response. And that we call the relaxation response. And instead of feelings of anxiety, there are feelings of control, feelings of peace, feelings of being able to handle a situation. Would you like to just go through what it's like to experience the relaxation response? Did I have a show of hands? Terrific. And Margaret Ennis will take you through the kind of exercise that she routinely uses to elicit the relaxation response. What I invite you to do is to begin to focus your mind a little bit. And one way to do that is to, if you're comfortable, either let your eyes close or stare at the floor or the ceiling, because otherwise you'll be more you'll be paying attention to all the things that are going on outside. And we're going to begin by using our breath as our focus because we have that with us all the time. We're just going to notice the way we breathe. And that's going to be our repetitive focus. Our breath. And I'm going to invite you to focus on that in a non judging way. Am I breathing right am I breathing wrong? Drop those kinds of questions and just notice how you breathing. And just notice. What's going on in your breath and your body, how you naturally let go every time you breathe out, you let go naturally of the tension in your body. You let go of the stale breath, the stale air, each exhalation is an opportunity to let go. And you can ride the wave of the breath. And let that tension go ever more deeply with each exhalation. You can let go a little bit more. So breathing out and letting go. Breathing out. And letting go. Now you notice the tendency of your mind to keep focusing on other things. Your breath becomes the anchor. That you focus on to draw your awareness back to this single repetition. Let yourself settle. Being with your breath. Letting your mind focus.

"Into museums. What are some of the museums that should really visit? Well, the de young museum is amazing, but a lot of people don't know about the legion of honor, which is just beautiful. It's just this 1930s art deco, just the building itself is gorgeous to look at. Then there is the San Francisco Museum of Art. But there are a lot of other museums a lot of people don't know about like the cartoon museum, tiny little museum done in fisherman's work, but very fun. There's also the Greg Angelo museum. A lot of the locals don't even know about the Greg Angelo museum. It's a suburban house and Greg Angelo and his artist friends have turned this into a circus. There's time capsules that's been. There's hidden doors. There's paintings that are psychedelic or what you would think would be psychedelic. There's performers, acrobats, trapeze artists, and every single room has a different theme. There's Arabian nights. There's a spaceship. There's a bathroom under the sea. And a pink stuffed animal cave. You expect to see Salvador Dalí at any time. Walk out there. That sounds incredible. It really is. Like, a lot of fun. All right, well, I know we're kind of running out of time here a little bit, but we don't want to miss out on talking about some of the amazing food. We kind of hinted at that a little bit towards the beginning. So let's talk about some of the recommendations for food places. I know also that there's the Chinatown there and some other kind of villages within San Francisco. And so you get some amazing food in these little villages where these have kind of an enclave of people, right? Yes, north beach is the Italian place. I mean, it's hard to go wrong there. There are so many different great spots there. And then, of course, Japan town, Chinatown. All over the city, there are places like state bird provisions out on fillmore street, which is like dim sum. They come around in carts, but it's not Chinese food. And you have to get the quail there. That's the thing that everybody gets on that menu. There are classic places like tadish grill, which has the oldest restaurant in San Francisco and there you have to get the crab if it's in season. If it's not, I'd get the sand dab. And Sam's anchor cafe, Tony pizza in north beach. They always win international words, best pizza, their marguerite pizza. You have to try that. There's just so many to name. China live is a new place in Chinatown. It's fantastic. Be sure and try their dim sum. So many great options. One of the things that I remember when I used to stay kind of down the street from Chinatown, I think is like down one of the alleys. They actually have a place where you can create your own fortune cookies. You can insert your own message. Yes, that is so fun. Yes, it is a fortune cookie place where you write in your own message, but in fact, what I found out after writing this book is that fortune cookies actually originated in Japan. During World War II, the Japanese could not make fortune cookies in the United States anyway. And so the Chinese took over at the Golden Gate park, Japanese tea garden. And they started making them. And they're the ones who put the fortunes in. And the soldiers came from World War II from all over the United States, and they loved him. So they went back to their hometowns and said, hey, why didn't you make these? And that's how we got the fortune cookie that we enjoyed today. But it really started in Japan. What a story. I know. It's so fun. The Japanese tea garden to goldengate park is also a great place to go to as well as the entire goal to gate park, which is larger than Central Park. I don't know if a lot of people realize that. And it has a model built racing area, a little Lake. It has a Lake where you can paddle boat. It had horseshoe range. It has just about everything that you can imagine windmills. It's a great part. That's really awesome. Well, Ruth, I really appreciate you coming on the show and sharing all these amazing tips. It's like bringing back so many awesome memories for me and I can't wait to be able to go there and bring my wife and kids and explore again. But now it's time for the final countdown. If somebody only has time for one meal when they visited San Francisco, where should they go and what are they? Well, I have to say the tattoo girl. It is the oldest ongoing restaurant in San Francisco. It has a wooden boost that even curtains if you need a little privacy while you have your meal. It's just a fun place to bartenders, the waiters have been there forever. They have great stories. They can tell you that you sit at the bar. And you have to get the crab if it's in season. It's usually starts around Thanksgiving. If not sand dams. Water sand devs? Little San ambitious. Local. Okay. You ever heard of that? They're just a little white fish in San Francisco. Okay, cool. So ruthie you've lived in San Francisco since you were basically in high school. I'm sure you have a lot of great memories throughout the year. Which one of your most memorable? Well, I'd have to say one night I grabbed a cable car to take home. I'm lucky enough to live right across the street from it. That's another tip for people that wait in those long lines for the cable car. Go to the little signs that have the cable car written on it and take it from there. And if you do, they'll think you're local. So I was the only person scandal car that night. I was so excited. I was like running up and down the car. It was nobody but me and the conductor. And we had a great time talking. He told me some wonderful stories, and he also said, please tell people. This is not a Disneyland ride. I'm always worried about them following up. They don't understand. This is a real motive transportation. And they jump around and clamber around it. I want them to know that you shouldn't do that. Yeah, no, I mean, those things are serious business. And if you fall and it runs you over or something like that, man, you are going to be in a world of hurt. Yeah, luckily, we haven't had anything like that happen, but that is an issue. For sure. Well, let's move a little bit more happier talk. So where's the happiest happy hour in San Francisco? Well, I love to tell people about Las and trial, spelled like central. Herb king who was a colonist for the San Francisco Chronicle for gosh decades. And really everybody knew herb king and listen to whatever he wrote in his column. He would write about society and gossip, but also what's going on in the city. And herd had lunch there every day with Willie Brown, who was our mayor for a long time, and then a state assemblyman and Wilkes bashford. We owned a very fancy men's clothing store. They'd have lunch there every day and they had this happy hour. That's amazing. It starts early. It starts at like three. And their regular price items muscles, hamburgers, or marked way down. And it's just a great way to experience San Francisco. Kind of the real San Francisco traditional San Francisco and you might see Willie Brown in there. I saw him in the other day. That's really cool. I mean, there's very few places you can go where you can reliably see. Kind of people from history. The people that made the town and kind of made it what it is today. And so that's really awesome to be able to do that. Yes. The one thing I always do whenever I travel is like, check out the local pizza. What's the best place for pepperoni pizza in San Francisco? Well, you have to go to Tony's in north beach. He wins international awards, his pizza crust is amazing. The famous one is the marguerite, but he also has a pepperoni that's great. And if you go there, try to sit on our ravel is a kind of famous bartender in San Francisco. I don't know what he does, but he seems to be magic. He just brings everybody together and had been there. I have met fascinating people. Next to me, the whole bar really. A lot of them are people who have been in San Francisco a long time, grew up there or their families did. And they always have interesting things to say and recommendations and where to go and what to do and I never had a bad time there. That sounds like a perfect place for me. Now, I know that you obviously have written a book on San Francisco secret San Francisco, but you've also been an international travel writer for for many years. What's your best travel tip? Well, I say talk to the locals. You know, go to the coffee coffee shop, go to the bar. Try to talk to locals ask them where to go ask them what to do because travel books.

"Clipper card website. Okay, yeah, so you can either get it when you get there at the drug store or you can order online ahead of time that way you're ready to go as soon as you arrive. Exactly, either way. Awesome. Okay. Well, let's take a step back for a second. I am in Nashville now or people may be listening or in other parts of the country or even international, and they want to get to San Francisco. What's the best way? Because I know there's a couple of different airports that are there. What would you recommend and then how do we get around from the airport to the city? That's an interesting question because San Francisco international airport is the largest one. And it is the only airport that has an accredited museum. It has a whole staff there that puts up exhibits as you walk around the airport. So if you are stuck there for a while, you get to look at that. And the reason I say if you're stuck there is that we do get fog. And so that can delay flights. If you go across the beta Oakland, which is only about a half hour away, they don't get the fog. They're stunning. So that is also a good alternative. They're not as large and they don't have as many flights. So it might be cheaper to go to San Francisco, but you never know. There's new airlines coming out all the time with cheap flights. San Jose is only about an hour south. They're also good. And in Santa Rosa, is an upstart airport. It's small, but it also has a lot of cheap flights for people coming in the U.S.. And San Francisco and Oakland both have direct access to Bay Area rapid transit or Bart as everybody calls it here. And so once you get there, you can hop on Bart and get right into the city. That's a lot cheaper than getting a cab or an Uber. Yeah, that's awesome. Because when I used to live in Southern California, I would fly in Oakland all the time. Primarily because of the issue with the fog in San Francisco, but also because the fights are generally cheaper in Oakland. When I used to fly, they didn't have that direct connection to the bar. You had to take the little bus that take you over to the Bart station and everything. It was a little bit of a little bit of a hassle. Now you got the little monorail that goes between the two, which is makes it so much simpler and easier. And for people that are trying to figure things out, where the Bart station is, for the Oakland airport, that's where the a's play and the Raiders used to play there. But the Oakland a's play there, too. Yes, for now. Yeah. We're hoping they stay. That'd be awesome. Okay, so because we have the Bart, we don't need to worry about running a car when we visit there, right? Because parking is incredibly expensive and a little bit difficult. You don't want to rent a car if you're going to be just in San Francisco. If you're going to go to Napa, if you're going to go to Santa Cruz carbon valve then you'll need to rent a car. But what I recommend to people is they get into the city and then use we have an amazing number of public transportation options. My favorite one is walking. It's a great walking city, but there are hills, so you have to be aware of that. But there's also the bus, the muni bus. There's also the cable car, which is a great way to get around if you can get on it. There's also the streetcars. There's, of course, ride shares. So there are a number of options that you can use in parking is impossible in the city. I think they're really trying to get it to be a pedestrian only city because there is no parking. If you can come in through Bart from the east bay or now from Fremont down near San Jose, then you're going to be okay because then you can use ride share or use public transportation. But if you drive in and try to find parking, it's going to cost a fortune and unfortunately, we also have a lot of car theft of people stealing things in cars. So I recommend, if you come to the city, don't break a car. Okay, that makes a lot of sense. So when thinking about that, we have taken bar to get into the city and we're looking around. What part of the town should we look at as far as booking our hotel? I really like the presidio. It has two hotels there and you're right next to beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge and you're right next to the Marina area, which is really fun and a great walking area flat. It's a nice flat area. And they all have shuttles that'll take you down to Union Square if you want. They'll take you to different places around town. So I love that area myself to stay. That's what I recommend to my out of town visitors. Okay. And is there any areas that we should try to avoid? Yeah, they want to go to the tenderloin that is the dangerous area and a few places south of market can be dangerous. So I would avoid those. Okay. So let's talk about a little bit of the things we should do when we're visiting there. Obviously, like we mentioned in the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, some of the museums, those are all things that I think people kind of know about. But your book is like secret San Francisco. So you know some hidden gems within the city that maybe a lot of the listeners don't know about. Sure. Well, as I mentioned before, walk, try those some of those 600 stairways to see a different part of the city. You can walk up to coit tailor, which has amazing murals back from the 1930s and that's a great place to explore. The coit tower was started by a woman who volunteered for the fire department. Lillian Hitchcock quite and donated money for some sort of sculpture and they built coit tower, a lot of people say it looks like a fire engine hose, but supposedly the sculptor said that was not their intention. And we had at one time in San Francisco in early 1900 and emperor of San Francisco. Emperor Norton was a man who lost sell his money and really kind of lost his mind. And decided that he was emperor of the city and he dressed up in regal attire and he had his own money, his own currency that he would ask people to give him money for. And the city loved him that he got free opera seeds, ballet, CT get free dinners. Everyone just loved emperor Norton. And these days, Joseph amster leads a emperor Norton tour around San Francisco. It's really a fun time. And he shows you the history of San Francisco as well as some of the current things that are really fun. Gosh, there are so many things to do in the city. North beach is a great place to experience Italian food. If you want to see big schooners, I would avoid the crowds at pier 39 and go down to aquatic park Hyatt street pier. They have these historic schooners that you can get that led tours for very little money and you won't have the crowds. The water taxi. So many locals don't even know about the water taxi. So I love to go down to the ferry building on Saturday morning. Go to the farmers market, and then grab the water taxi down to fisherman's wharf. And then you can see the sea lions without all the crowds on the docks. You see them from behind. You can get right up close and personal at a boat. Those are some of these I love to show people. And also, I have to mention musi mechani done at fisherman's wharf. It has very old amusement park, arcade games. Like from 1800s. And also some from the 70s. And everybody I've taken in, no matter what age, old, young, in between, loved it. You just get your quarters and go crazy in these machines. It's just and it's right on the water. It's got this beautiful view. It's just a really fun time. That's really awesome. Now one of the things that I think San Francisco is really known for is Lombard street. It has a reputation as the windiest or pervious or whatever street in the world. But there's actually a different one that's probably even more curving and twisty, right? Yes. Vermont street. Lombard street is very pretty. It has beautiful garden, as you wind down a GCP beautiful flowers, but all the neighbors, by the way, put in the city doesn't do that. But Vermont street is cricketer out of portrayal hill. It's just not as pretty. So every Easter though, they have a big wheels contest. Where adults and some children, they let children go first. They have these big wheels, bicycles, that they go down this crooked street on. And it's just a big festival. It's crazy. Like San Francisco. That's awesome. Okay, so if people are planning to come there and maybe they're really.
