Waiting to X-hale Podcast Karen Tongson and Wynter Mitchell

Waiting to X-hale Podcast: Karen Tongson and Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh

Presented with the LA Phil

Waiting to X-hale is a queer/woman-of-color-driven podcast exploring the pop culture and transformative social issues that defined Generation X. Hosted by Karen Tongson and Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh, experts in the fields of pop culture and digital media, Waiting to X-hale’s discussions, debates, and instructive interludes reflect on Gen X culture and its enduring afterlives in ways that shed new light on both then and now. Presented in conjunction with the LA Phil’s Gen X festival curated by Tongson and Mitchell, the podcast taping will bring a distinctly L.A. lens to the subject, amplifying the Gen X artists, creators, and communities whose points of view have been traditionally pushed to the peripheries in the story of Los Angeles.

Dubbed the “King of Gen X cinema” by Time Magazine, Kevin Smith – writer, director, podcaster, and all-around great raconteur – joins the Waiting to X-hale live podcast taping. Also joining for a special segment via Zoom is legendary performer, singer, and author Sandra Bernhard.
