    I have lived in the South most of my life. The food, the soil, the music, the accents, the air here is home to me. Southern hip hop gave me language for so much of what I experienced so I am excited to chat with Dr. Regina Bradley, a southern hip hop scholar and author of Chronicling Stankonia: The Rise of the Hip Hop South. Listen in as Dr. Regina and I talk about Outkast, quintessential Southern hip hop songs, and why southern hip hop must be studied through an academic lens. You can learn more about Dr. Regina’s work and her new book at her website www.redclayscholar.com. Her book Chronicling Stankonia: The Rise of the Hip Hop South is available everywhere books are sold. You can also follow Regina on Twitter at @redclayscholar. Please enjoy this episode from the HER Archives.

    I love gathering with y’all each week in our HER Living Room and this week we are gathering around the table for a conversation on food and Arab culture with award-winning Palestinian author and writer Reem Kassis. I only wish we could have eaten the food Reem features in her latest book, The Arabesque Table! Listen in as Reem talks with me about the finding home and the power of preserving and discovering culture through food. Make sure you get The Arabesque Table at your favorite bookseller and follow Reem on Instagram @reem.kassis. Please enjoy this episode from the HER Archives.
