Pod-Pod – A new UNDO Audio Residency

Six active podcasters are invited to enter a protective bubble in our artists residency in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to create a safe and supportive community for deep listening, intentional living and creative podcasting from April through June.

Cop shows, prison films, and true crime docs have a long history of glorifying the criminal justice system, naturalizing its inherent violence, and narrowing the imaginative possibilities for abolition. 

In a new iteration of our Collaborative Studio, co-designed with esteemed experimental filmmaker Christopher Harris, we invite a collective to examine, contextualize and dismantle scripts of the carceral state from the archives of popular culture.
