After a 19-year hiatus, returning to your ear canals on a weekly basis with NPR has been nothing short of amazing. We super appreciate all the positive feedback to our podcast thus far. If you've enjoyed our first three episodes with Dave Chappelle, Mahershala Ali and Eddie Huang, you're in for more goodness with upcoming in-depth interviews every Wednesday with incredible people, including Stevie Wonder, Chance the Rapper and more!
Although doing a podcast is completely different than what we did in the '90s with our mix show, one thing that has stayed consistent is that we're having fun. We have consistently been hearing, "When I listen, I feel like I'm in there with you!" Our aim is to make both our studio guests and online audience as comfortable as possible so that we can all journey to unexpected narratives. We're not about exclusivity, though, and that's why (insert funky drummer drum roll) we're taking our show on the road to a city near you!
First we'll be hitting The Bell House in New York to build with artist and designer Eric Haze and actress and activist Rosie Perez on September 7.
Next up to bat on September 22, we will be at NPR's Washington, D.C., headquarters for a conversation with Michelin-starred Chef José Andrés.
We'll close out our first podcast tour on September 27 with a live interview in Culver City, CA, at Playa Studios. Stay tuned for our guest reveal in the coming days.
Wanna know What's Good? Catching up with you, our listeners, while we're out there in the field doing this live. C-ya at one of our shows!
