    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.

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

Palimpsest Gets Better Each Season

It really does. I can’t recommend Palimpsest enough if you like creepy stories with a lot of heart
