The Spot: Climbing Trains & Trees
This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...
In the 1980’s, New York City officials were fed up with the graffiti coating subway cars. 99% Invisible has the story of how they eventually cleaned them up, kept them clean, and how it all has impacted the global community of taggers.
Just like tagging can be a lifestyle, so can hunting down and prosecuting taggers.
On the podcast Random Tape, Radio Reporter David Weinberg produces short episodes that feature unique, found recordings discovered from lost cassette tapes; or quick, individual sounds he’s captured on the road while reporting; or random recordings sent in to him from other radio reporters.
In this episode, Atlanta-based radio reporter Jenny Ament, shares some of her own random tape documenting a real-life cat and mouse chase.

Tune in next week for another episode of The Spot, only on KALW San Francisco.
