This week I’m going to recommend the podcast, Code Switch. It’s published by NPR. I feel more and more these days like I need to educate myself. I know there are books to read but I’m more of a listener (I need to multi-task and when I’m reading a book I can’t do much else) so podcasts are a good way for me to soak up knowledge.
I subscribed to this one a year or so ago on a recommendation, but I had trouble getting into it. Today I listened to three episodes and I really like it.
There are several hosts that rotate through the episodes.
Their site described them as such:
Remember when folks used to talk about being “post-racial”? Well, we’re definitely not that. We’re a multi-racial, multi-generational team of journalists fascinated by the overlapping themes of race, ethnicity and culture, how they play out in our lives and communities, and how all of this is shifting.

I was made aware of this podcast by a long time Collected Sounds Friend/artist, Allison Crowe. Lisa, the missing woman, is her friend.
Here’s the description: On a long weekend in the summer of 2002, Lisa Marie Young went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday. There were big changes ahead; a move to a new apartment, a fresh start on a career with big dreams of becoming a sportscaster. But that night, Lisa got into a red jaguar with a young man from a prominent family and was never seen again. People who live in Lisa’s hometown believe they know who is responsible for her disappearance. Producer Laura Palmer explores the tragic real life tale behind an urban legend haunting a small island community.
I hope those responsible for her death (and any cover ups) are held accountable.
Search “Where’s Lisa” in your preferred podcast app or listen on their Podbean page.
““Song for Thrill and Tom” is about a complex, beautiful and extraordinary love story. The main characters are real people in my life, who I’ve tried to portray as authentic as possible, so that it becomes like a musical monument of the existence of their love. Like a ring on their fingers. ”Thrill and Tom”, are my dear friend Tirilleia and her Tom, the great love of her life, who tragically passed away two years ago.”
