The Africas VS. America
In 1985, at the height of the Black Power era, police dropped a bomb in a Philadelphia neighborhood. Their target? A family of Black radicals known as ‘MOVE’, who found themselves ensnared in a city’s — and nation’s — domestic war on Black Liberation. From CBC Podcasts, The Africas VS. America looks at the legacy of the tragedy. It’s new today.
The Royals of Malibu
The Royals of Malibu, an adaptation of a YA book, launches today from Diversion Audio. The podcast is an edgy, romantic, rags-to-riches saga starring internet sensation and actress Alyssa McKay, whose BTS social content has had the show charting on every major platform for the last month.
