Six new GHOGH episodes will be recorded in Austin at SXSW. Nubai's Jamarlin Martin commented:

"The massive success of the film 'Black Panther' showed there is a massive demand for inclusive content that is fresh and authentic. I believe the podcasting format is a great medium to give our audience something unique and personal. Content creators are economically desperate in terms of low monetization stemming from advertising deflation from the Facebook and Google duopoloy. There is too much content out there that is overly  'corporate' and there is not a lot of hardcore authenticity that puts the people first. In addition to providing great content with broad intellectual range, we are building the GHOGH (Go Hard or Go Home) content franchise for the people; advertisers won't come first."
