Denis Sanchez lives in a Hare Krishna temple in Berkeley. He details motorcycles, works in construction, does odd jobs here and there. What most people don't know is that he used to be a promising young architect in France -- until his ambition caused him to lose sight of what really matters. Listen to this beautiful story from Season 1 of Hear Here.

Hear Here is part of a national initiative of AIR, the Association of Independents in Radio, Inc designed to bring new journalistic and technical ingenuity to extending public media service to more Americans. From Chinese restaurants in Boston, to shuttered factories in Dayton, to the oil fields of North Dakota, to Bay Area startups, the ten Localore production teams are working with their public station incubators to uncover ground-up stories of America in transition. Follow their development, and learn more at Localore.net.
