On Changing Denver this month, we invite local journalist Andy Kenney to guide us through the story of Stoner Hill, a small elevated area of Commons Park. For years it has been a respite for assorted travelers, misfits, and people experiencing homelessness. But now that developers and their wealthy customers have moved into the neighborhood, it has become a source of tension. We dove into this one heads first, figured out the latest news on Stoner Hill, and even got a little involved in the conflict ourselves.
This episode is a follow-up to Andy’s wonderful cover story for Westword last December. It is not required reading for the episode, but we highly recommend going back for it.
Also, you can follow Andy on Twitter, @andyknny.
The end credits song in this episode is “Hashtag: First World Problems” by The Windermeres. It’s track number one off their 2014 album Anthem of the Recession Generation, which you can find on their bandcamp page. You can also find them on Facebook.
