She was wearing a Cubs baseball jersey, standing in the very same spot I was upon arriving. “I’m a hugger”, she shared, sporting a warm smile, a black visor and the perfect afro puff.
I first heard of Kiana on Gimlet Media’s podcast, Sampler, and have been following her work since. From the deep southern cuts in her mixes on Soundcloud to her writing pieces and music reviews on NPR, music writer and DJ, Kiana Fitzgerald, at the age of twenty-six is doing a little of it all.
Still very much in life’s transitional phase, as am I, listen as Kiana and I talk about new beginnings, the absurdity of this week and both the beauty and fear that’s intertwined with embracing the process.
