In Spring 2019, CoHo endeavored to tackle the idea of Radical Listening head on, and the Radical Listening podcast was born. Produced by CoHo Productions and Virtual Sonic Reality Studios, Radical Listening features hosts Phil Johnson and Clifton Holznagel as they dissect Portland theater and performing arts through a series of interviews with local creators.
These two unconventional interviewers/theatre artists take a deep dive into the inspiration and creative processes of each guest, as well as getting their perspectives on popular topics. Recorded in the CoHo Theatre, each interview brings insight and levity to the relatively obscure world of the Portland art scene.
Each episode of Radical Listening is available right here for your listening pleasure. New episodes are posted as soon as they’re available. You can also subscribe on Apple Podcasts or stream from SoundCloud.

In a world filled with contentious noise, theater is a place to listen. Hear a story. Respond viscerally, spontaneously, immediately, and as a result engage with the world more openly. That is Radical Listening. In this episode, we talk to CoHo’s former Artistic Director and Radical Listening Co-producer Philip Cuomo about clown, co-production, and how to bring a theatre back from the dead.
