The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva) are Peabody Award winning independent producers. Their non-profit 501c3 production company is dedicated to creating public media and educational programs that work to build community through storytelling.
The Kitchen Sisters began their radio lives producing a weekly live radio program in the late 70’s on KUSP-FM in Santa Cruz, California. Their early interest in gathering oral histories greatly influenced their style of production. Their radio documentaries have been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and Morning Edition, the BBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Radio Smithsonian, California Public Radio, Pacifica Radio, Soundprint, and others.
The Kitchen Sisters' digital collection at California Revealed consists of audio recordings from the 1970s to the 2000s. The majority of the collection consists of interviews, including the first Kitchen Sisters’ story to be aired on NPR: an interview with Alan Little, aka The Road Ranger of Santa Cruz, CA.
