With 2014 coming to a close, VOSD Radio host Scott Lewis and special guest co-host Randy Dotinga decided to look back on some of their favorite stories of the year.

And in a special year-end edition of Hero and Goat, Dotinga and Lewis roll through a few candidates for both titles: Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, return-to-normalcy Mayor Kevin Faulconer and VOSD founder Neil Morgan‘s names rose to the top for the Hero list, while failed City Council candidate Sarah Boot and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis are in the running for the dubious Goat honor.

Stick around for the second half of the podcast for Dotinga’s infamous ham story and Lewis’ 2015 plans for VOSD.
