Embrace first partnered with WOCA The Source 96.3 FM/1370 AM for a 30-minute periodic radio talk show program as an extension of our magazine content coverage. Embrace later partnered with Locala Podcast to change the radio show into a podcast. Produced similar to CBS “60 Minutes” televised news show, Embrace On-Air has three guests per 30-minute broadcast speaking on three topics that appeared in the quarterly issue. Whereas “60 Minutes” is done in three 20-minute segments, Embrace On-Air is done in three 10-minute segments.
Embrace On-Air podcast: "Updates with the Artists." LGBTQ+ artists featured in the Arts Issue July 2022 share more insights on the coverage within the issue, as well as updates on those stories and other projects, plus participate in a group discussion on LGBTQ+ hot topics that affect everyone in the LGBTQ+ community.
