The Filter podcast – hosted by Flatland’s community reporter Vicky Diaz-Camacho and social media coordinator Ieshia Downton – is back. Season 2 debuts Sept. 29.
Nominated for a Public Media Award in 2020, this Flatland original podcast offers a unique window into areas sometimes hidden from the light. This season we dissect topics brought to the forefront the past year in search of lessons we and others learned.
New episodes are available on the last Wednesday of each month. Look for episode extras, dropping in the two weeks after episodes drop.
