Since International Coffee Day will be celebrated on Monday (internationalcoffeeday.org), and this year’s theme is Women in Coffee, this is a perfect opportunity to introduce you to these two local coffee connoisseurs.

Today’s podcast focuses on story ideas and how to find great ones.Read the stories mentioned in the podcast here:Still shiningBy Lane DeGregory / Times Staff WriterOn the south side of the city pier, across from the hot dog stand, the old man parks his pushcart. He pulls out a metal folding chair, ties two corduroy cushions on the seat, unloads an amplifier, a microphone, a fistful of cords. Then he takes out his battered guitar.It's a sunny Friday, about 2 p.m. A light breeze is rippling the bay. Sea-green trolleys are clanging by. Hundreds of people are parading past the old man.Fake feathers sprout from his red straw cowboy hat; striped paper clips and painted hearts circle its blue ribbon brim. Thick, square glasses magnify his milky gray eyes. His nose is long, his ears oversized. His head looks too heavy for his body. It seems to sink into his stooped shoulders, maybe from the weight of his hat.He says he's just under 5 foot 6. (Just six inches under.)
