Will there also be singing?

Yes, there will also be singing.

About the dark times.”

what is Same Wavelength?

Same Wavelength is a series of conversations with artists exploring the relationship between their creative work and our current moment. Each episode presents a thoughtful dialogue with an artist discussing how they choose to use their platform in light of social and political issues.

Guided by the notion that curiosity, empathy, and listening are catalysts towards a better understanding of ourselves and our society, Same Wavelength is an exploration of histories – cultural and personal – as a means to reframe our present moment through the artist’s lens.

Same Wavelength is hosted, produced, and created by Michael Sokol. Over the past decade, Michael has conducted hundreds of interviews with artists, business owners, and community leaders as an on-air host in Western New England. He currently lives in Los Angeles.

The first season of the podcast features conversations with Merrill Garbus from Tune-Yards, Henry Rollins, Anaïs Mitchell, Kamasi Washington, Alynda Segarra from Hurray for the Riff Raff, Archie Shepp, David Crosby, Andrea Gibson, Richard Thompson, and Josh Krugman from Bread & Puppet Theater.
