Media shapes culture, but it's more than news media and social media: photography, podcasts and music can also give a platform to new voices while also documenting the past and present. Underground media makers can have a huge impact on how we experience the world.
In a new episode of the KPBS Explore podcast, "The Parker Edison Project," we talk with a photographer who's worked on everything from album covers to popular movies like "Friday" and "Exit Through the Gift Shop." We'll also talk to a professor of history who uses podcasts to teach and a musician who argues that music is the foundation of all art forms.
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.
