Salt Lake City, UT – Next week, thousands will find their way to Nevada's Black Rock Desert for the annual Burning Man experience. The temporary city has become an artistic mecca, where free expression and experimentation are the order of the day. But the festival is also highly organized, with staff and volunteers providing emergency services, building infrastructure and cleaning it all up at the end of the week. On Monday, Doug talks with photographer A. Leo Nash and sociologist Katherine Chen about the creative and complex culture of Burning Man.
