Yooo, I’m a guest on “Rightnowish” a podcast/ radio show with Pendarvis Harshaw on KQED!! Been listening since it came out in 2019 and have loved listening to interviews with mc/writer Rocky Rivera, MC/Historian Dregs One, Futbolista/Medicine woman Dania Cabello, Muralist Timothy B, Artist/Curator Ashara Ekundayo, Designer/publisher Mike Nicholls, Cartoonist Breena Nuñez, muralist Josue Rojas and his Mama, and series pieces like this summer’s “Searching for a Kiki” with Corey Antonio Rose who lovingly shares Queer Black history.
Rightnowish seeks out a broad array of folks in music, film, activism, organizing, performing and visual arts. He gets in depth with each guest and topic in a very short segment that is so sincere, clear, and inspiring. Not since “Home Turf” , “Distortion to Static”, or “Hard Knock Radio” have I heard such a wealth of folks who are talented but underrated by mainstream media be highlighted. That’s actually how I found Pen, through his doc on Mike “Dream” Francisco.
But, what’s even better is that the team of host/journalist Pendarvis Harshaw with producer Marisol Medina Cadena and editor Jessica Placzeck make the process and final product PROFESSIONAL. When you listen you know who the episode is about. And you can hear it clear and concisely. Not all podcasts do that! And when I think about how they condensed our hour long convo to this short but meaningful piece; I’m awed. Subscribe to this show, share it, donate to KQED, and follow the team!
