The minds of many in the Bay Area are in Philadelphia this week, where top Democrats from around the nation have gathered for their national convention — right off the heels of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. How is all this affecting us back here at home? We’ve been sending reporters around the Bay Area to find out.

Our friends at Youth Radio in Oakland sent a contingent of reporters to Cleveland last week for the Republican National Convention. Reporter Soraya Shockley spoke to KALW's Ben Trefny about her experience covering the convention, and interviewing former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele.
