Listen Local is Mission Local in audio form. We record live on a biweekly webcast at every other Thursday morning from 9:30 to 10:00.

In this week’s episode, we discuss the topic that’s completely occupied our minds, and our coverage, for the past few days: the four-alarm fire that tore through the large building at 22nd and Mission. The fire displaced dozens and took the life one man. It was also the site of our offices for a year and a half. We discuss the impact the fire has on the neighborhood, the community’s response, and what it’s been like for us to be at the center of it while trying to cover it.
