This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...
The team at Black Gold Boom has interviewed folks from all over western North Dakota, gathering stories from those most affected by the oil boom there. You can find more short stories and audio at their website, including the interactive video journalism piece, Oil to Die For.
The locally-produced podcast Nocturne, explores the often overlooked and undisclosed stories that happen when the sun is nowhere in site. The show recently documented a bi-coastal nuisance, starting here in San Francisco.
Nocturne is also part of a new podcast collective called The Heard, which joins together other true-life storytelling podcasts like ARRVLS, First Day Back, and more. You can keep up to date with the collective on Twitter.
If you have a suggestion for a podcast or an audio project we should feature, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tune in next week for another episode of The Spot, only on KALW San Francisco.
