We asked Coko a few questions:

🔹 What episode of yours should people check out?

I loved recording the Nostalgique episode about Destiny’s Child, and 90s R&B in general. I have a huge passion for music, so it was nice to get to flex that muscle. 

🔹 What’s your favourite Sonar show?

Nostalgique and The Bed Post. I love the dynamic between the hosts on Nostalgique, and of course Erin Pim is an amazingly empathic and curious host on a topic that’s so taboo to everyone else.  

🔹 What are you looking forward to doing most once the pandemic is over?

Travelling. The pandemic has made me realize that I’ve actually been holding back on travelling. 

🔹 What do you have that people can check out now?

I love our new Thursday line-up: 5 Things w/ Kyah Green, Our Next Guest w/ Liz Johnston, & Theatresports, our flagship show. It’s an incredibly entertaining lineup.
