Prose & Cons, hosted by Ben Krumwiede, Dominique James and Justin Piaoan: 1st and 3rd Thursday at 11:00 AM

Welcome to Prose & Cons! Our mission is to create a positive outlet where spoken word artists, poets, and writers in RVA can share their work and ideas with listeners. Through our conversations with these artists and recording their work, we will discuss both taboo and topical concerns. By gathering the collective voice of Richmond’s writers, we aim to cultivate a new audience for RVA’s vibrant and growing writing community.


Groundswell, hosted by Sunny Gardener: 2nd and 4th Thursday at 11:00 AM

Groundswell is an informative, interactive hour-long show, broadcast monthly.   It is occasionally be recorded in front of a live audience who may participate. Our mission is to present a range of solutions to complex matters by shining beams from different angles, thereby illuminating the whole.

Groundswell features conversations among cognoscenti from various fields that intersect around an issue such as water rights, renewable energy sources, education inequity, land use, or human rights. Guests focus on solutions stemming from the unique perspective that comes from their fields of knowledge or expertise. For example, a table around human rights might include panelists versed in women’s issues, LGBTQIA,  immigration law, family law and prison reform. I include voices from all sides, and seek a balance of proponents and opponents of the matter at hand; e.g. inviting a Dominion insider to discuss energy sources alongside a solar advocate.
