About the Show

Join producer and host Anna Shah Hoque and guest producers Aedan Corey, Matt Miwa, Kole Peplinskie, Keegan Prempeh and Summer-Harmony Twenish for a new season of the groundbreaking podcast To Be Continued: Troubling the Archive.

The podcast engages Ottawa-based QTIBPOC artists, arts workers and activists whose networks, ideas and histories have built, and continue to build, this incredible community. Artists featured include Adrienne Row-Smith, Hingman Leung, Pree Rehal and Jennifer Brunet-Rentechem.

This season foregrounds conversations about Black, Indigenous, racialized, diasporic and queer archives of longing, memory and inheritance in arts-based practices. Hear from familiar voices, delve into hidden histories and discover your new favourite artist!

We're also thrilled to debut a beautiful new graphic for this season, created by Hunter Dewache, and custom intro / outro sounds created by Bucko aka Chris Binkowski. Podcast editing is by Fin-xuan.

New episodes drop in January 2023! Make sure you’re subscribed on your podcast platform of choice so you don’t miss the first episode.

This season of To Be Continued: Troubling the Archive is generously funded by a Digital Now grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
