The Grounded Futures Show, Episode 25: Remaining Unbroken, with chris time steele
“I've always been a rapper, since I was 12. So that's what I do. And it's the way I communicate best and most vulnerable.”
In their last episode of the season, Uli and carla share a wonderful talk-about with the always inspiring chris time steele! A dreamer, writer, and poetic historian, chris’ digs into many topics, from Hip Hop to basketball to community organising to breaking apart propaganda to the philosophy and beauty of anime.
