    Introducing 'DAY BY DAY: Quarantine Diaries'

    THE INTERSECTION will return with new episodes as we get closer to this year’s virtual Burn. In the meantime, we're spotlighting amazing audio that's being made right now.

    DAY BY DAY is a limited series from KALW that follows a mix of ordinary people dealing with these extraordinary times. 

    It is co-produced/edited by Gabe Grabin, Angela Johnston and David Boyer (that's me!) Gabe is also responsible for the exquisite scoring and engineering.

    S03 E06 - DESERT meets DEFAULT at Burning Man

    Burning Man is known for its massive, Instagram-friendly art installations that are a stark contrast to the beige, desert backdrop. There are also many smaller projects, labors of love that can easily get lost. In this installment, we discover one of them. To the naked eye, it looks like an old phone on a dusty table. What awaits those who pick it up? Find out.

    S03 E05 - PARTY meets PRAYER at Burning Man

    S03 E05 - PARTY meets PRAYER at Burning Man

    Burning Man is pagan at its core with a hell-ish aesthetic. It's understandable that many evangelical leaders condemn the event. But why do so many devout Christians attend each year? And what do they do once they're there? We meet the priests and apostles of Religous AF camp, who are on a mission to help other Burners heal their spiritual wounds.

Great local storytelling

David really knows how to weave a narrative. He knows how to humanize timely topics. I just discovered this podcast and listened to all three seasons, all good.
