Season 1, Episode 10: A Fly on the Wall: Exploring the Classically Black Podcast
In February of 2018, two students who had been attending Eastman for almost two years – Dalanie Harris and Katie Brown – met for the first time in the Detroit airport. Just nine months later, they’d launched the Classically Black podcast. Now, with over 100 episodes under their belts and a devoted following, Classically Black is growing and still going strong. We learn more about the hosts, what inspired them to start the podcast, and talk about why it was important to create a digital space for black musicians to embrace their blackness.
