Hosted by music/pop culture journalist Kelly “K-Fresh” Frazier, Fresh is the Word aims to tell the stories from a variety of different voices including women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community through the artistic lens of pop culture. Joined by comic creators, authors, actors, comedians, photographers, sex workers, scientists, athletes, and even other podcasters, we talk about many topics including overcoming creative obstacles, representation in the arts, gender and sexuality issues, LGBTQ issues, and other topics adjacent to lifestyle and pop culture.
The guests for this episode are Kiarely Castillo and Kristen Sturgis, members of the metalcore band Conquer Divide. Recently, they released their first single in five years with the song “Chemicals” along with a cover of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy”.
We talk about coming back together to make music again and where everyone in the band is in life, along with my obsession with their song “What’s Left Inside” from their debut album. We also talk about how they have been dealing with the pandemic, both personally and as a band.
