Format: Podcast (audio only).
In partnership with South Seattle Emerald, Town Hall presents our podcast residency, Life on the Margins. Using our Artist/Scholar in Residence platform, we’re lifting up three local voices—co-hosts Marcus Harrison Green, Enrique Cerna, and Jini Palmer share stories not just about marginalized communities, but from within, and alongside them.


Amid the death and turmoil of the Coronavirus pandemic, people are stepping up to aid their community with humanity and compassion. We introduce you to coffee shop owner Luis Rodriguez and volunteer Maria Lamarca Anderson who show us why giving is so important in these difficult times. Plus, we begin a new segment “For Real Though” that examines society’s absurdities, ridiculousness, and injustices that are leaving us in a state of disbelief, and making us ask “but, for real though?”
