On December 8, KALW’s community storytelling project Hear Here put on a live presentation of some of the great Bay Area stories it has gathered so far. The event was in partnership with the second annual edition of Live Crosscurrents at the Oakland Museum of California. (Listen to a broadcast version of that show here.)

Watch the animated version of this presentation here!

From Chinese restaurants in Boston, to shuttered factories in Dayton, to the oil fields of North Dakota, to Bay Area startups, the ten Localore production teams are working with their public station incubators to uncover ground-up stories of America in transition. Follow their development, and learn more at Localore.net.
