Noted Canadian broadcaster, music journalist, and radio producer Vish Khanna filled a niche in podcast culture in 2013, creating one of the earliest long-form interview podcasts that mingled subversive musicians with brilliant authors, comedians, community builders, and other vital people from around the world. Kreative Kontrol has subsequently been featured in Rolling StonePitchfork, A.V. Club, SPIN, NME, Exclaim!CBC Radio, and many more for deeply fascinating conversations and documentaries about music, politics, and pop culture. One-on-one in a studio, park, living room, or restaurant, or staged live before an audience, a Kreative Kontrol conversation is always rewarding for Vish’s guests and their followers.
