This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...
The first season of the podcast Q’ed Up, titled American Suburb features reporting from deep within Antioch, CA, following those who have been priced out of the western parts of the Bay Area and are looking for a better life in the eastern suburbs, and the older residents who were and weren’t ready for them. The entire season is filled with extraordinary stories about race, poverty and belonging, reported by KQED’s Devin Katayama and Sandhya Dirks.
In this episode of American Suburb, they introduce us to a group of Muslim families in Antioch, who’s mosque was burned down in 2007, and now must decide whether to rebuild there or leave the city.
If you have a suggestion for a podcast or audio project we should feature, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tune in next week for a whole new episode of The Spot, only on KALW San Francisco.
Also, for the whole month of March podcast producers from around the world are asking listeners to take a moment to share some of your favorite shows with people that you care about -- especially with the people that you care about who you know haven’t really given podcasts a chance yet. Talk about it over dinner, send them an email, or share your favorite shows using the hashtag #TryPod on social media.
