About Likewise Media

About Us

Likewise Media is the publishing company that produces the podcasts LikeWise Fiction and Keep the Channel Open.

Inclusive Fiction

Stories are important. Stories, especially when read aloud, do more than just entertain—they provide a point of connection between people. But for so long, so many voices have been excluded from traditional pubishing, especially women and nonbinary writers, writers of color, and LGBTQ+ writers. It's critically important to find ways to support these artists and make new spaces for their work to exist, and new venues for getting that work out into the world. LikeWise Fiction is dedicated to providing that space and support, sharing new stories every month from writers from underrepresented communities.

In-Depth, Intimate Interviews

Since 2016, host Mike Sakasegawa has had conversations with some of the most exciting artists and writers in the business, sharing them via his podcast Keep the Channel Open. Whether visual arts, literature, podcasts, or curating, what ties all of these things together is the drive to create, to engage with creativity and our shared human experiences. Mike and his guests dive into process and dig into the work, exploring what it means and why it matters.

What Your Support Means

When you make a pledge in any amount, you're not just helping cover things like production and hosting costs for these shows. You're also helping support an entire creative ecosystem, including editing, graphic design, illustration, and, of course, the authors behind the short stories shared on LikeWise Fiction. Let's help make the inclusive and sustainable creative world we'd like to see, one little bit at a time!
