For some people, power is the ability to speak as truly as possible. Not everyone has that power or the ability to act on it. Too often that opportunity has been denied to historically marginalized groups. Much of our media systemically pushes them and their stories to the edges of society. But we're proof that if you speak loudly enough, your voice can still triumph, even from the margins. Every single podcast will strive to spotlight, elevate and amplify stories not just about our marginalized communities, but from within, and alongside them.

Join us as we loudly trumpet Life On the Margins.

    Slammed: Communities of Color and the Covid-19 Pandemic

    Slammed: Communities of Color and the Covid-19 Pandemic

    A public health study reveals that King County has significant racial disparities in the number of coronavirus cases and deaths. Among Latinos, the study shows the virus death rate is two and half times higher than white people. The study mirrors what is happening nationally as communities of color are being hit hard by the coronavirus. In episode 3 we break down the data in King County with Matias Valenzuela, equity officer for Seattle-King County Public Health, and we also meet registered nurse Jessica Esparza; an ICU nurse at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, who is risking her life to save others amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Amid the death and turmoil of the Coronavirus pandemic, people are stepping up to aid their community with humanity and compassion. We introduce you to coffee shop owner Luis Rodriguez and volunteer Maria Lamarca Anderson who show us why giving is so important in these difficult times. Plus, we begin a new segment “For Real Though” that examines society’s absurdities, ridiculousness, and injustices that are leaving us in a state of disbelief, and making us ask “but, for real though?”

    Racial politics and the Coronavirus Pandemic.

    Racial politics and the Coronavirus Pandemic.

    In exploring how to grapple with the bias and stigma being unleashed during this crisis, we spoke with two people who have had to deal with it head on. We talk with former Washington State Gov. Gary Locke who woke up last week to an inadvertent cameo in a Trump Campaign ad as well as New York Times best selling author Ijeoma Oluo about efforts to aid Seattle area artists and how we might curb the rise of racial bias during this trying time.
