About

My name is Nia King. I host and produce a podcast called We Want the Airwaves where I interview queer and trans artists of color about their lives and their work.

Making a podcast is a lot of work. Popular podcasts like WTF?, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and The Nerdist have engineers, interns, and sponsors. I just have me and my Patreon. I book the guests, research their work, conduct the interviews, edit the interviews (it takes me about an hour to edit each 15 minutes of the podcast), upload them to Libsyn and iTunes, write the copy to promote them, find the images to go with them, etc. The only part I am currently outsourcing is transcription for Deaf and hard-of-hearing access.

Thanks to my current Patreon supporters, I am able to pay about $60-75 an episode for transcription helping create jobs (or at least short term gigs) for QTPOC in the US and Canada. If I'm able to raise more money I would like to be able to hire a QTPOC podcast editor and a copywriter, so that I can focus on asking interesting artists interesting questions instead of spending hours editing out coughs, sneezes, and throat-clearing sounds.

There are so many amazing queer and trans artists I want to interview. Your support will enable me to interview more of them, by delegating work and creating jobs instead of trying to do everything myself!

About me: I'm a queer, mixed-race (Black, Lebanese, and Hungarian) artist and activist based in Oakland, CA. I am the author of Queer & Trans Artists of Color, Volumes 1 & 2. Occasionally, I blog about trying to make a living as an artist.
Goals
$187 of $250 per month
This way I can focus on booking good guests and doing good interviews instead of spending hours each week editing out "ums" and "uhs".
