This will be remedied soon; candidates interested in the post have two more days to file.</p> Mon, 27 Feb 2012 22:12:50 +0000 Steven Short 6551 at http://kalw.org Meet Emeryville's first poet laureate WEB EXCLUSIVE: A conversation with "Shellmound" documentary filmmaker Andres Cediel http://kalw.org/post/web-exclusive-conversation-shellmound-documentary-filmmaker-andres-cediel <p>An extended conversation in which KALW&#39;s Ben Trefny interviews filmmaker Andres Cediel about what lies beneath Bay Street in Emeryville: a shopping mall, atop a toxic industrial center, atop a Native American burial ground.</p><p><em>Audio available after 5pm&nbsp;PST on February 16, 2012.</em></p><p>&nbsp;</p> Thu, 16 Feb 2012 22:29:24 +0000 Ben Trefny 6036 at http://kalw.org WEB EXCLUSIVE: A conversation with "Shellmound" documentary filmmaker Andres Cediel What lies beneath Emeryville’s Bay Street shopping mall http://kalw.org/post/what-lies-beneath-emeryville%E2%80%99s-bay-street-shopping-mall <p>Just off Shellmound Street in Emeryville, an outdoor mall sits on prime real estate. It&rsquo;s north of a maze of highways leading to the Bay Bridge. A quarter of a million drivers pass within honking distance every single day. While the Bay Street &quot;Urban Village&quot; was only established in the 21st century, the land it sits on has a very rich past. Rich enough to warrant a documentary film that uncovers several layers of unusual history.
