“The Filter,” Flatland’s newest podcast, mics up under-reported stories in Kansas City. The podcast will give context to issues centered on culture in Kansas City that we may not have considered before.
Hosts Ieshia Downton and Vicky Diaz-Camacho are interested in the nuance of Kansas City culture and will delve into topics that we may want to talk about but sometimes feel like we can’t. Through in-studio interviews and immersive audio storytelling, “The Filter” will tap into all aspects of KC culture to bring voices that are often missing from the conversation.
Beginning Feb. 26, the first episode of “The Filter” will tackle what the CROWN Act means to Kansas City’s black community, explore how the “American Dirt” controversy affects local bookstores and immigrant authors, explain how it really feels being multi-racial in the heartland, and more.
A teaser is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and wherever podcasts are available. Some of “The Filter’s” segments also will air on 90.9 The Bridge.
Production was made possible by Chris Cosgrove, audio engineer at Kansas City PBS. The podcast’s theme music is “Devoted” by St. Louis artist Aysia BerLynn.
