The Bridge: Exploring the Bay Area one intersection at a time

Jul 29, 2016

THE INTERSECTION is one of the most ambitious reporting projects to come out of KALW. It's a podcast that explores change in the Bay Area one street corner at a time.

We'll listen to an episode from Season 1 of the show, which takes place entirely at the corner of Golden Gate Avenue and Leavenworth Street in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco.

While many people associate the Tenderloin with homelessness and drug dealing, it also has the highest density of kids in the city. In this episode, we see the neighborhood through the eyes of one child and her family.

To learn more about THE INTERSECTION and hear the rest of Season 1, go to or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Stitcher.
