Latest Work

Check out Diving Board 2020, our latest podcast episode with the Woodmere Art Museum about art and social change.


2020 is proving to be a busy year so far at Kouvenda Media. A new podcast about banned books is under development and expected to launch by Banned Books Week in September. And Kouvenda Media is also partnering with several researchers to develop a new podcast about improving the child welfare system’s response to child sexual abuse investigation. 

In the meantime, a few more updates:  

Remember Reading

The podcast was a finalist for an award honoring Best Use of Podcast in Publishing.

Diving Board

An amazing new exhibition is up at the Woodmere Art Museum. It’s called Africa in the Arts of Philadelphia: Bullock, Searles, and Twins Seven-Seven.

Kouvenda Media helped produce an in-depth series of conversations that you can hear about the artists who were vibrant in Philadelphia’s African-inspired art scene that started to emerge in the 1960s. While the conversations take us back in time, they’re also rooted in the present with discussion about the role art can play in social change, healing and paying homage to heritage and identity. 

At the Core of Care

New episodes will be rolling out monthly in 2020. Be sure to look out for our series about immigrant and refugee health care. And if you’re new to the series, you can find more information here.
