Guardians of the Gate


For 25 years, Ken Hopper and Kerry Davis have been part of a team that maintains the structure of San Francisco’s most iconic monument: The Golden Gate Bridge. Their workplace is a destination for tourists, but also for more desperate visitors who have made the Golden Gate Bridge one of the world's leading suicide locations.

At StoryCorps, Hopper and Davis talk about how their work involves a lot more than just making repairs.

Big thanks to StoryCorps for that story.
