Tour exciting American cities with Timothy "Speed" Levitch in Up to Speed, A Hulu Original Series, from Richard Linklater, the writer/director behind Before Sunrise, Waking Life, and Dazed and Confused. The quirky historian and travel guide explores and makes acquaintances with monumentally ignored monuments and often overlooked, yet wildly interesting, attractions.
In San Francisco, Speed reminds viewers not to be afraid of being "accused of a little undiagnosed schizophrenia," as he embarks on an eccentric tour of The House of Falling Furniture, the Golden Fire Hydrant (which saved the city from the fires after the Earthquake of 1906), and the history of the controversial removal of the Embarcadero Freeway.
