PST, THIRD COAST IS BACK THIS FALL — in a new, virtual world. Join us for much-needed audio community & inspiration in: Third Place.

Erisa Apantaku

Erisa Apantaku (@erisa_apantaku) is a queer, Black audio producer and uninvited guest on the lands of the Miami, Peoria, Potawatomi peoples, and more (Checagou/Chicagoland.) As a speaker at the 2019 Late Night Provocations, Erisa will be joined by colleague & friend Jenny Casas for a short talk about the possibilities of making story-telling more generative and less extractive.

Erisa is the executive producer of South Side Weekly Radio, a hyperlocal podcast accompanying a weekly print newspaper focusing on arts, culture, and politics on Chicago’s South Side. She’s never too full for a hot dog.


Our favorite tradition on the opening night of the Third Coast Conference.... this time, with some SPOOKY energy!
