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.
