Come hang with journalists Leila Day and Hana Baba, co-hosts of The Stoop Podcast: stories from across the Black diaspora....

Born out of the side conversations they had while microwavin' their lunches in the kitchen of KALW where they worked together, The Stoop digs into things Black communities are living, but don't talk about enough. And throughout their podcast journey, Leila and Hana kept hearing the same questions: "who's you're audience?" and "Should audience affect the content and style of a show?"

At the 2018 Third Coast Conference, Leila & Hana led an honest conversation about audience, identity and being a maker of color in an industry that's overwhelmingly lacking in diversity. Drawing from their own work and the inspirations of others, they presented some creative ways they’ve found for producers to own their own narrative.
