In a new episode of the KPBS Explore podcast "The Parker Edison Project," we look at cultural currency, the history of radio in San Diego and how Black DJs had to go to Mexico to broadcast in the U.S.
Then, King Dice stops in for the segment, "Movies Millennials Should Movie," and musical guest Cee Knowledge, also known as Doodlebug from Digable Planets, joins us to talk about his new project.
What comes to mind when you think of American culture? The Parker Edison Project works to expand the cliché answer to that question. It's a podcast that zooms way in 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. This is the Parker Edison Project, a sonic exploration of what's considered American, where each episode starts with a thought-provoking talk and ends with a musical bang.
