The Seven Seven Three, currently under development, is a podcast series investigating the history and culture of my childhood neighborhood on Chicago’s Southwest Side. This is an area that often receives a reputation as being violent and dangerous, but my series explores the larger history and complex narratives that undergird this neighborhood in order to weave a more nuanced and hopeful narrative. There’s more to the Southside than meets the eye, and this podcast illuminates what’s been left in the dark.
Recently, this podcast was picked as one of five finalists from over fifty submissions at the 2018 Werk It! Women’s Podcast Festival Pitch Accelerator, hosted by WNYC Studios in Brooklyn, NY.
Stay tuned on my Twitter for updates on this series!
