    ft. Treasure Shields Redmond & Jia Lian Yang
    In this episode, Who Raised You? Podcast returns West. First, we go to Seattle for PodCon 2017, where we ask other podcasters of color: Who Raised You? We talk to Franchesca Ramsey aka Chescaleigh, comedian, Youtuber, and host of MTV’s Decoded. We also talk to two black podcasters, Bacon (Unreasonable Fridays) and Rashanii (Single Simulcast), about who raised them. 
    Then we hop on a plane to the Bay Area and stop by Oakland, Treasure’s old stomping grounds, on the way to San Jose, where Jia Lian grew up. At Fruitvale station (Rest in Power, Oscar Grant), we run into Derek and a former student of Treasure's father, Eugene B. Redmond. In Oakland, we catch up with Glenn, Treasure's manager when she was a hip hop artist in the music industry. Finally, we meet Jia Lian's father in San Jose, where he tells us a story about Jia Lian's fence-climbing shenanigans. 
    Join us for this traveling conversation about podcasters of color, how to maintain in gentrifying Oakland, and our vision for the Who Raised You? Listening Collective.

Dope

Simply dope.

Revolutionary

Fantastic podcast, every episode has valuable wisdom in it, from perspectives that are sadly lacking in media - people of color, midwestern, female.

Every episode something magical happens

Treasure and Karen and their guests have the most real, relaxed conversations - your guard goes down and you feel like you're listening to people shoot the breeze and then - something magical happens and someone speaks deep wisdom and full truth. EVERY episode this happens. I keep thinking they can't get better - but every conversation gets there. This podcast calls for response! please keep the beauty coming.
