As host of Rightnowish, lifelong Oakland resident Pendarvis Harshaw takes listeners on a brief but memorable trip to a Bay Area artist’s home turf, speaking to them about their passions and inspirations, and linking their work to larger societal issues.
A constant student of arts and culture, Pendarvis inspires listeners to get out and appreciate the Bay Area—and reminds us that creativity lives not just in museums and theaters, but on street corners, in classrooms, and during civic protest.
New episodes drop every Sunday online and on KQED-FM at 7:34am and 9:34am. Don't want to miss a show? Stay up to date by signing up for the weekly KQED Arts newsletter here.
'Rightnowish is a term I've used on Twitter for about four years now, often as a part of my caption for a photo depicting an important happening of some sort. It’s become a way for people to see the world through my lens, in real time.' —Pendarvis Harshaw
