Winter Camping

My dad passed away last year. I wanted to share some of my favourite memories with him. The time we went Winter Camping was one of those great stories that I will tell again and again. I’m glad I finally wrote it down.

Know Your History Season 4

Know Your History is a monthly documentary radio series I produce about hip-hop music and culture. Last year, I did episodes about the history of radio broadcasting, women in hip-hop, hashtag rap, storytelling rhymes, metaphors, concept songs, and much more. You can download the entire fourth season  in one handy zip file.

Recommended Read – Will and Whit

I really loved this graphic novel by Laura Lee Gulledge. I had to add it to my recommended reads list.
