Rashid Zakat - Citizen Journalism, Code Switching and Hard Drive Diving

Today’s episode is with my good friend Rashid. We met up in Bryant Park to talk about citizen journalism, speedy digital culture, the complexities of art and social media, hard driving diving, code switching, iPhone films, growing an audience ethically, Nia Long, shooting film, defining value, A Love Supreme, growing up Baltimore, cultivating ideas and much much more.

That’s enough intro for show, please enjoy.
