We wrap up the first season of The Bridge with one of our favorite stories - about the aftermath of the closure of the NUMMI car factory in Fremont, California.

What happens when 5,000 people lose their jobs in an area where there are no other car factories for hundreds of miles? KALW's Angela Johnston goes to find out.

For updates on Season 2 of The Bridge, subscribe to our podcast. You can find the show in iTunes or Stitcher, add our RSS feed, or just search for "Bridge KALW" in your favorite podcast app.
