We discussed the current state of Northeast Ohio's hip hop scene, and heard about the new musical avenues DGK & Fresh Produce have been exploring.

Also we spotlighted Daniel Gray-Kontar's Twelve Literary and Performance Arts Incubator, an intergenerational teaching, learning, and performance space for poets and playwrights, located in the Waterloo Arts District in Cleveland's Collinwood neighborhood!
