Welcome to the Secret Coast Radio podcast broadcasting somewhere on the Secret Coast
Let us begin by saying:
We prefer the first person plural over the singular.
We prefer mystery over journalism.
We prefer a discussion over a monologue.
We prefer building driftwood forts over destroying them.
We prefer brief stories told across a table over streaming shows that never end.
We prefer finding L7’s Hungry for Stink cassette for a quarter over finding Bob Dylan’s Victoria Secret CD for 50 cents.
We prefer people who follow through over those who flake.
We prefer art made from beaverwood than art stolen from colonized nations.
We prefer kindness over judgment.
We prefer people who evince a little curiosity over the long gray-haired transvestite dressed in tight yellow shorts and a fur coat sitting in the shoulder along Highway 101 over those who don’t bother to look.
We prefer ink stamping over 3-D printers.
We prefer using a shim to make something fit right over pounding something into place with a mallet.
We prefer Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill over a genocidal maniac like Andrew Jackson.
We prefer athletes who don’t choreograph touchdown or goal celebrations, especially when they’re ahead 50 to nothing or 12 to zero.
We prefer knobs and dials over algorithms.
We prefer great new notions over stale thinking.
We prefer interviewing elk over celebrities.
We prefer forests over clearcuts.
What is this podcast about? Who are we?
Like we said, mystery over journalism.
Let show number two begin.
