How about dance and drink champagne with everyone you've ever known? A Bay Area man and his husband try to greet death in style. But they discover that death has its own agenda.</p><p>KALW contributor Julia Scott produced this radio documentary in partnership with the <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00yc3q9">BBC World Service</a>.</p><p><strong>Bon Voyage</strong></p> Mon, 02 Sep 2013 22:41:00 +0000 Julia Scott 18083 at http://kalw.org Bon Voyage: A Bay Area couple try to greet death in style Fishermen harvest dinner in the bay – at their own risk http://kalw.org/post/fishermen-harvest-dinner-bay-their-own-risk <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">It’s crab season in California, and commercial fishermen can’t unload their catches fast enough to satisfy the crowds filling Fisherman’s Wharf. But out on the public piers behind the </span>Embarcadero<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, away from the big boats, you’ll find a different breed of fisherman. They set out their poles, unroll their lines, add some bait, and wait quietly for dinner to arrive.</span></p><p> Mon, 19 Aug 2013 23:57:59 +0000 Julia Scott 8249 at http://kalw.org Fishermen harvest dinner in the bay – at their own risk Homeless in San Francisco http://kalw.org/post/homeless-san-francisco <p></p><p>Joseph Luna woke up this morning in a sleeping bag under the Harrison Street on-ramp to Highway 101. He sleeps here when he needs to get out of the rain.</p><p>Luna does not sleep past eight because he'll get rousted by police. His sleeping spot is near a five-way intersection, in back of a city tow lot. In his morning routine, he will get up, stack the cardboard and shove his stuff into a big black duffel bag, the only bag he owns.</p> Wed, 29 Aug 2012 23:30:20 +0000 Julia Scott 15918 at http://kalw.org Homeless in San Francisco California salmon are back, but for how long? http://kalw.org/post/california-salmon-are-back-how-long <p></p><p>Life is pretty boring if you’re a salmon growing up in the Nimbus Fish Hatchery. After being incubated in a tray, you spend six months in a plastic tub surrounded by 70,000 fish just like you. Then, it’s graduation day. You’ll be scooped into a tanker truck and dumped into the Sacramento River. But for now there’s nothing to do but eat, and the only thing you see all day are the people who feed you, like D.J. Gervin.</p> Tue, 28 Aug 2012 01:06:27 +0000 Julia Scott 15794 at http://kalw.org California salmon are back, but for how long?
