Our auto drama gets NPR treatment

By now, you've probably heard the story of NUMMI, the Fremont auto plant that will close for good on April 1, taking hundreds — possibly thousands — of jobs in San Joaquin County and the rest of the valley with it.

But you've never heard it detailed by This American Life, a public radio program put together under Chicago Public Radio, and one of the finest examples of journalism left in the United States.

This weekend, This American will use its weekly hour (click for preview) to examine the plant's closure and talk about what might have gone differently. Tune in to either 88.5 FM (out of San Francisco) 91.3 FM (out of Stockton) at noon Saturday for the full story.
