Tea Time: Race, Power, and Podcasting

  • Ford Center - Studio Theater Oxford (map)

Following the live podcast recording of Waiting to X-Hale, Isom Director Jaime Harker will moderate a discussion about the future of women of color in digital media.

Karen Tongson and Wynter Mitchell were once co-hosts of the popular podcast, Pop Rocket. However, after their white cohosts left for other projects. the producers decided that two women of color wouldn’t be able to carry Pop Rocket and ended production. Loyal listeners were outraged, so Tongson and Mitchell created their own podcast, Waiting to X-Hale.
