I Grew Up Like This (Kids in Black Rock City)

Guests: Lulu, Molly Vikart

A whole generation of kids has grown up with Black Rock City as their second address. And they’re amazing. Andie and Stuart talk with Burner kids and Burner parents about the challenges and rewards of going to BRC instead of summer camp. Nine-year-old Charlie (C.Bear) and sixteen-year-old Ava (Dust Storm) share what it’s like for them, and we hear from Lulu and her mother Molly, who’ve been going together for most of 25 years.

And we discuss our invisible friends from childhood…

And we share a clip of Larry Harvey waxing poetic about kids, community, and commodification from a Profiles in Dust documentary.
