About This Show
Do you live outside the world of straight white males (or aspire to)? From Hirah Media, each episode of Sample Space is a collection of narratives centered around a theme, like This American Life, for non-white folks. These are our stories, sad and sweet, funny and dramatic, familiar and strange. They are the stories of our lives, the stories of color, gender, abilities, culture ethnicity, age, and poverty. Ideas?
