Just how sexy is San Diego?

In a new episode of the KPBS Explore podcast "The Parker Edison Project," host Parker Edison is joined by a special guest host, and the two talk about San Diego's lascivious history, the dating scene and how the military, LGBTQ+ communities and even the weather have influenced the city's culture.

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.
