The NexCrew was formed out of the ashes of its predecessors – NexusGen Radio and AfterDark Radio. In December 2016, creator Jazzy Ne’ decided to open the podcast up to the realities of today’s society.

In their minds, they believed that not enough Black people received recognition for the contributions to the geek community. Regardless of the outlet used, they are always met with adversity
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
