Media shapes culture, but it’s more than news and social media: photography, podcasts, and music can also provide a platform for new voices while documenting the past and present. The creators of underground media can have a huge impact on the way we experience the world.
In a new episode of the KPBS Explore podcast, “The Parker Edison Project”, we chat with a photographer who has worked on everything from album covers to popular movies like “Friday” and “Exit Through the Gift Shop”. We’ll also talk to a history teacher who uses podcasts to teach and a musician who maintains that music is the foundation of all art forms.
What comes to your mind when you think of American culture? The Parker Edison Project is working to broaden the cliché answer to this question. It’s a podcast that focuses on what really makes a culture: food, music, style, sex, fashion and more. Join host and co-creator Parker Edison for insightful conversations about creativity and community, all through the lens of black America. It’s the Parker Edison Project, a sonic exploration of what is considered American, where each episode begins with a stimulating speech and ends with a musical bang.
