I kick off this episode by discussing the importance of anti-racist white voices in music -- and what I mean by anti-racism. To hear more white artists who stand up against racism -- and grapple with their own roles within it -- you can listen to my Spotify playlist.
I also interview Kara Kundert and Justin Hiltner about the Bluegrass Pride nonprofit and their streaming festival Porch Pride. You can catch it on Saturday, 6/27 and Sunday, 6/28!
Thanks again to Patreon and Ko-fi contributors who helped me buy the laptop; I need it specifically to make the podcast. The rest is gonna go to to the Trans Justice Funding Project!
