Tim and Kameel give you a preview of what is coming in show’s fourth season, with an extra emphasis on the LIVE HERE part of We Live Here.
Bonus: Black Girl Magic Pt. 2
Tim and Kameel are working hard to make shows for the next season, but don’t worry dear listeners,
because it’s bonus episode time! We’re taking you allllll the way back to a little more than a year ago when we brought you an episode called “Black Girl Magic.” Some of you diehards probably remember it, if not, scroll back in our feed and check it out. The episode is all about a big effort among business leaders in St. Louis to diversify the city’s entrepreneurship scene. It turns out one young woman was listening, and the story of what she
did next is pretty cool.
Bonus: Kehinde Wiley takes us to art church
It almost seemed like a too-good-to-be-true Black History Month gift: the unveiling of the super-cool official portrait of former president Barack Obama. This distinct image of Obama, which is unlike any other presidential portrait, immediately caused a cultural and artistic buzz. Even better for us, it happened to be by the mesmerizing Kehinde Wiley, an artist we had on the podcast in 2016 following a controversy at St. Louis’ contemporary art museum. In that episode, titled “Museum Meltdown,” Wiley spoke to us about the complicated intersection of race, representation and art. But there were a lot of things we left on the cutting room floor. So, in this bonus episode, We Live Here cracks open its vault and shares never-before-heard parts of an interview with Wiley. He gets into the fascination people have with a black artist painting white bodies; a concept he calls “cultural policing;” and the impoliteness of exclusion.
Bonus: Out of the Ville Pt. 2
We miss you guys! We’re hard at work getting shows ready for our fourth season, but we don’t want to leave you hanging. So, we’re dropping a little bonus content. Last year we collaborated with the very cool producers at Baltimore’s Out of the Blocks podcast and brought you voices from the Ville, a historic black neighborhood in north St. Louis. This is the second show from that podcast mashup with some extra stories at the end.
Jesus is back! Our favorite black spiritual adviser returns to judge our third season. Hear highlights from the episodes he liked, and the ones he didn’t.
