I often say that, podcasting is not for the weak. The task requires a certain talent in order to manifest an idea into an audible body of art. Through my presentation, I hope to speak to this process through my experiences with my latest project, “chase at wake”, as well as shedding light on the difficulty that come with being a young creator of color in such a saturated market.
