Episode 5 of The Big Event podcast chronicles a visit to a hardware store in Santa Rosa, and a moment of grace over a cheeseburger. A day and a half after the Wine Country fires destroyed the Coffey Park neighborhood, host Peter Hartlaub found some residents who lost nearly everything - but were still filled with gratitude and empathy.
The music is "Dark was the Night" and "Shelter" by Randy Clark's Crowsong, with The Chronicle's Josh Zucker on bass. Opening signature by Leah Garchik.
