Crowdcast Q&A [part 1]

Hey, Kayona here. So I’ve got some good news: You can now go onto the site,, and be among the first to get the novella for episode two by pre-ordering before its official release date.

Due to the recent pandemic, the traditional ways of doing things have gone out the window. I know that entertainment is not an "essential product," so I want to make sure anyone who wants access to my art can get it... whether you can return the favor by paying for it or not.


If you can afford to give $1 or more, great. Click the “Give what you can” button. But if you still want to read but cannot support me right now, that's fine as well. Just click the “Read now, give later” button.

As mentioned in the last few podcast episodes, as an artistic entrepreneur, the unending of everything around us has altered my normal way of going about things,, but I am certainly not complaining. Financial struggles aside, I’ve personally welcome this as an opportunity to focus on gratitude and completely readjust what’s considered “normal.”

Anyway, here’s another recent conversation about the Of Music and Men project. Like the last two podcast episodes, this is a two-parter. Now, my people on Patreon have already gotten this full interview and they received it in video format, but for my regular podcast listener, the audio-only will be broken up into two parts. You’ll get the second part next week.

Thanks again for listening, and enjoy the show.

Profile picture for Kayona Ebony Brown

Kayona Ebony Brown

Hailing from our nation’s capital, Kayona Ebony Brown is a multi-hyphenate storyteller who grew up in a home that nurtured her eccentricities and unexpected interests of a girl. Thus, she gives fuel to female-driven vehicles, emphasizing existential undertones, putting unusual or unpredictable women at the wheel.

Using drama to bake fresh narratives, her stories are always flavored with other genres—fantasy, sports, music—which gives her work with both TV and feature scripts a common thread: she makes female leads of color just as acceptably flawed and admirably defective as the straight white men we always find a way to love.

Rejecting the presumed path of a Washingtonian (government work) in favor of art, Kayona is the recipient of multiple awards for her writing and filmmaking, as she continues to build her career independently.
