The Spot: Bad Gigs & Great Birds
This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...
Life of the Law is killing it lately. They’ve recently added new editors to the team, and new producers, and the stories they’ve taken on, well, you won’t hear them anywhere else. In their latest episode, they take a deeper look at rights -- or lack thereof -- for folks who work from home.
For many living in the Bay Area during this current boom, there are opportunities for lots of little bits of employment, which also come with extra risks. Now, I want to switch gears and introduce you to a small town that’s losing its younger populations to places with better job opportunities, and how the story of a bird is giving the community new hope.
This story is part of Long Haul Productions' song/story series. Long Haul releases most of their stories on their podcast, up now on iTunes. The song, "Lord God Bird," was written and performed by Sufjan Stevens. You can listen to the full song in the video below.
