Unlatched Podcast is an ongoing project run by Amy Hodkin and Jessica Kashdan-Brown, sharing spoken word and original music from one home to another. The podcast is a place for writers and musicians to share their work, bringing together performers and listeners in a way that respects the importance of social distancing.
We won’t pretend that poetry, stories, or music can fix what’s happening right now, but we hope it can offer a bit of space and distraction from worrying – a momentary throwing-open of a window to let in the voices of others.
The podcast is open to everyone, everywhere, from all backgrounds. Whether you’re a seasoned performer or just starting out, all you need is a device with recording capacity (a phone will do!) and something to perform. We can’t wait to hear and share your work!
