January 31st UPDATE: Finally the project I’ve been working on with Jamie Broadnax (Black Girl Nerds, Rewire’s Get It Right) & Stephanie Williams (Lemonade Show, Let Go Let Flo) is getting ready to launch TOMORROW!
What is it? Well a new podcast of course: Misty Knight’s Uniformed Afro. A weekly podcast devoted to the consideration of Black women superheroes in comic books and related media. There’s nothing like it out there, and I’m so excited to be a part of this as an associate producer and mixing engineer. Here’s the lowdown from executive producer and co-host, Jamie Broadnax!
I’m temporarily on hiatus from the Black Girl Nerds (BGN) Podcast which is back in production for 2017. But I look forward to returning to BGN editing soon!
I’m excited to be providing interview editing for recent and upcoming Black Girl Nerds (BGN) Podcast episodes. The award-winning Black Girl Nerds (BGN) was founded by Jamie Broadnax, and provides a space for a range of voices (including male contributors) to create media content focused on wide ranging nerd perspectives. The resulting content appears in various locales of the BGN media hub which includes the BGN website, blog, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, and Pinterest pages, as well as Twitter feeds, and live events with over 80K followers combined across all of BGN’s social media networks. Check out my edited segments below.*
