In a world filled with contentious noise theater is a place to be quiet and listen. Join hosts Phil Johnson and Clifton Holznagel as they dissect Portland Theater and performing arts through a series of interviews with local creators. With their own theater pasts, these two unconventional interviewers take a deep dive into the inspiration and creative processes of each guest as well getting their perspective on popular topics. Each interview brings insight and levity to the relatively obscure world of the Portland art scene. Radical Listening is produced by CoHo productions and Virtual Sonic Reality Studios in Portland OR and can be streamed on Soundcloud, Spotify, and Apple podcasts.
