I am making the difficult decision to let go of this show, with a final show date of May 21st, 2022. As much as I enjoy having a show, as I have started a new leg of my career and am focused heavily on finishing my licensing requirements, I am finding it too difficult to manage the demands of producing a biweekly show.
I would prefer to focus on quality over quantity, and to this end, I hope to bring the show back to a better day and time once I have finished the demands of my licensure requirements in my career. In the meantime, I plan on continuing to produce a few specific social-justice-oriented specials each year that will continue to be announced on this page.
My next show will be focused on Transgender Day of Visibility, airing March 26th, and I will be airing a National Poetry Month special in April, and 3 more music shows with themes as yet to be determined.
