Sharlese Metcalf:
I began the radio program at Green River Community College in 2002 and inherited the local show there called Local Motion. I hosted the show (which I modeled after Audioasis) for 3 years and began volunteering at KEXP in 2005. I have been working on Audioasis ever since. In 2007, I became the Producer of the show and received the honor of becoming the host in July of 2012.

I like pizza, dragons, the color gold, walking to the bass beat in my headphones and poetry.
