Jimmy Talks-a-lot talks to us about over-zealous city regulations, the economics of busking and his genuine love of Seaport Village. 

This might be the best podcast yet. For real.

Jimmy is just one of the characters performing at this weekend's Spring Busker Festival, happening from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 16-17.  Push play and hear his take on the life of a busker in San Diego.
