    Bella Hadid is our surprise guest!

    We stay ready at WGRL/Podcast Power! When we got word that our fabulous big sis Bella Hadid was coming by to tour the sound studio we saved a seat and a microphone for her!

    Bella was lovely enough to jump on mic for an impromptu, short but very fun interview.

    Thank you so much for your time Bella – we can’t wait to have you back in the studio!

    Meditate With Us for the New Year!

    Meditate With Us for the New Year!

    Whew – it’s been rough out there in the world so we thought we would slow down a bit and do some serious self care. Our friend the amazing healer, yogi and performer Shelley Nicole stopped by to lead us in a soothing meditation and then we tried our hand at writing and recording our own guided meditation. InJoy the vibes – we wish everyone an easeful, peaceful 2024!

    Growing Abolition with Joseph Capehart

    Growing Abolition with Joseph Capehart

    Joseph Capehart is a poet and educator pushing the needle when they can and flipping the table when they must. Black, queer, and concerned with freedom, they are the founder of The Garden, an abolitionist bookstore and community well in Brooklyn.

    This conversation is part of a collaboration with our mentor, artist and instigator  jackie sumell and MoMA PS1 which resulted in an exhibition at PS1 entitled “Freedom to Grow“.

    In the Summer of 2021 the Growing Abolition class produced a series of four podcasts delving into Abolitionist Worldview as part of the course work.

    In the wider project we explored:

    What can plants teach us about prison abolition, healing, and expanding our horizons of possibility? What would a world look like in which we all have what we need, with networks of safety and support created by and for our communities? How can we put abolition into daily practice, as a process of creating and nurturing alternatives to the structures that harm us?
