We miss you guys! We’re hard at work getting shows ready for our fourth season, but we don’t want to leave you hanging. So, we’re dropping a little bonus content. Last year we collaborated with the very cool producers at Baltimore’s Out of the Blocks podcast and brought you voices from the Ville, a historic black neighborhood in north St. Louis. This is the second show from that podcast mashup with some extra stories at the end.
Jesus is back! Our favorite black spiritual adviser returns to judge our third season. Hear highlights from the episodes he liked, and the ones he didn’t.
Out of the Ville
Sonny Liston, Frankie Freeman, Chuck Berry, Tina Turner, Dick Gregory: That’s just a handful of America’s black luminaries who called “The Ville” home, a one square mile neighborhood in north St. Louis. But decades of population loss and systemic disinvestment have left it a shell of its former self. We team up with our very cool friends at WYPR’s “Out of the Blocks” and tell the neighborhood’s story through the voices of people who call it home today.
I Live Here 2017 - Part 2
We keep the stories going and keep up our streak of handing the mics over to the community. Listen to the second half of this year’s “I Live Here” live storytelling event. Hear from three St. Louis artists — including a young poet, a country music performer and a singer-songwriter who are all grappling with the ideas of place and home.
I Live Here 2017 - Part 1
It’s story time. Last year’s “I Live Here” storytelling event was so much fun, we decided to do it again this year. This week’s episode is a little different, and features hosts Tim and Kameel handing the mics to the community. In this first half, hear stories about black love, a woman who finds peace in her identity and spirituality and an outspoken politician who once struggled to speak for herself, let alone others.
