We spent 18 months at an intersection in the middle of
Google's Silicon Valley HQ. Over the past 30 years, this corner has gone from farmland to boomtown. But what happens next, may be the most dramatic change yet...

ARE YOU READY FOR SEASON 03?
WE'RE GOING TO BURNING MAN!
ONE CORNER AT A TIME.
THE BAY AREA is changing. San Francisco's skyline is filled with cranes. Dive bars and other beloved institutions continue to close. As we try to make sense of what’s happening, a simple narrative seems to have hardened into something resembling fact: Tech-fueled gentrification is destroying the progressive, multicultural, artistic soul of this city and region. While the latest tech boom may be part of the story of a changing Bay Area, it's not the whole story. Not even close.
This series of audio documentaries—produced in conjunction with local public radio station KALW and with grants from California Humanities and SF Arts Commission—explores the contours of change in the Bay Area and in city's in general. One corner, one person and one story at a time.
Welcome to THE INTERSECTION.
