Role: Lead Producer

My journey into Burning Man’s TEMPLE.

An audio documentary and feature story for KALW and THE INTERSECTION, an Edward R. Murrow Award Winning Podcast.

“Is Burning Man just a stupid rave in the desert? Yes. Is it also something much more? Absolutely.”

If the wooden man effigy represents Burning Man’s comic and cosmic core, the Temple is its heart and soul. A place where people come to honor and grieve, Burning Man’s Temple has become a potent and sacred space in the middle of nowhere — a pilgrimage of loss, grief, praise, and release. Moving beyond physical and metaphorical art, something unusual emerges from this temporary desert space.\
