When was the last time you saw yourself reflected in the art that you love? For Portland’s Taneka Stotts, comic writer and editor, the answer was never. So she co-founded Beyond Press, a small-scale publisher that releases comic books featuring queer-identified and minority artists. In today’s episode, Soleil talks with Taneka about representation, Sonic the Hedgehog, and milkshakes.

 

In our intro, Juan and Soleil discuss the Portland Taco Festival fiasco and answer some listener questions.

Produced by Juan Ramirez. Music by AF the Naysayer and Blue Dot Sessions.
