    Word on the Street

    We are featuring the first podcast episode from Asheville's Word on the Street Squad. This group of Black and Latinx youth have written and produced a podcast exploring cultural roots and power by speaking about Dia De Los Muertos and Voodoo, telling stories they have heard in their families and cultures, and reflecting on how Halloween has culturally appropriated them, perpetuating oppression. 
    They are also in the midst of their annual fundraiser, El Arte De La Abundancia. You can find out more, and donate towards their goal, by visiting www.artedelaabundancia.org.

Bravo!

Bravo! I really enjoyed the first two seasons, but the third was spectacular. It helps that I’m a huge fan of the the source material that served as inspiration—even if not so much for the author of said material.

The show has always done so much with relatively little in terms of sound design. Yet, they fill that space with engaging stories and intriguing protagonists and supporting cast.

I put off listening to the third season as I wasn’t quite intrigued by the description of a spy during WWII. Well, I was wrong. It’s simply the thin veil that shrouds the real story...

Pablo goes ,

Yes!

Faeries (the complicated kind), spies who see ghosts, death in the suburbs (or was it murder?), and excellent production! Love the pacing, the story craft is a great balance of background in a moving plot. I wait eagerly in between episode releases. This is the jam!

It’s fun

Each season is a unique story. I think the story just keeps getting more interesting. They try many different types of stories which is fun. However there is NO sound design which makes the podcast a bit harder to listen to
