Arts, culture and global perspectives with Chrystal Genesis
Amanda Litherland is joined by journalist and curator Chrystal Genesis from the award winning arts and culture podcast Stance.
They recommend podcasts with diverse, global perspectives: Coming Out Stories, Tell Them I Am and Historically Black.
Coming Out Stories is hosted Emma Goswell and will take you to one the most important moments in many people’s lives.
It will perch you on sofas in suburban sitting rooms, stand you in front of officials' desks, put you at the centre of a crowd in a noisy classroom, everywhere where these conversations have happened. A podcast by What Goes On Media.
Tell Them I Am is about the small moments that define who we are and who we are not. The stories are universal. The voices are all Muslim. Host Misha Euceph opens a window into the lives of Tan France, Alia Shawkat, Ramy Youssef, Reza Aslan, Mercedes Iman Diamond and others.
It is a production of Southern California Public Radio.
Objects hold history. They're evocative of stories stamped in time. As part of The Washington Post's coverage of the Smithsonian's new National Museum of African American History and Culture, people submitted dozens of objects that make up their own lived experiences of black history, creating a "people's museum" of personal objects, family photos and more. The Historically Black podcast brings those objects and their stories to life through interviews, archival sound and music. A podcast from APM Reports, a production of Minnesota Public Radio.
