THE INTERSECTION looks at changing cities through physical intersections. This time we’re doing something different: The city is temporary and the intersections are conceptual. We’re going to a remote corner of Nevada for Burning Man.
We begin where the highway meets the desert as I approach the entrance of Burning Man. I've been attending since 1996. Over the next few months, with a team of reporters, I will bring you episodes that go deep into the past, present and future of a cultural phenomenon that was born right here in the Bay Area.
THE INTERSECTION Is a co-production of David Boyer and KALW. Jonathan Davis is the associate producer. It’s edited by Lisa Morehouse and Ben Trefny. And engineered for your listening pleasure by Tarek Fouda and Gabe Grabin with theme music from Erik Pearson.
