Description

Sounds Like Hate is a podcast from the Southern Poverty Law Center that tells the stories of people and communities grappling with hate and searching for solutions. You will meet people who have been personally touched by hate, hear their voices and be immersed in the sounds of their world. And, you will learn about the power of people to change – or to succumb to their worst instincts.

Season one takes a deep dive into the realities of hate in modern America: how it functions, how it spreads, who is affected and what people are doing about it. Season two examines the distorted history of the Confederacy some people accept as truth, and how the people we love the most could be guided toward violent extremist beliefs.

Getting Out: Part I

Getting Out: Part I

2020-08-1039:297

Getting Out begins with the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. But this isn’t about that white supremacist rally — it’s about a woman named Samantha, who worked behind the scenes to support this violent alt-right march. This chapter leads us through the story of how Samantha became the women’s coordinator of Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group, and why she decided she had to get out.

Part two takes Samantha’s story from the privacy of chatrooms to the corridors of power. What was the cost of her neo-Nazi separatist views? How did she contribute to the spread of deadly lies? And why did she decide to get out?
Not Okay: Part I

Not Okay: Part I

Not Okay takes us inside Randolph Union High School in Vermont, where 95% of students are white. The high school is at the center of two linked battles that are tearing their community apart: whether to remove a mascot some say bears a disturbing resemblance to a hooded Klu Klux Klansman charging on a horse and whether to fly the Black Lives Matter flag.

In part two, we return to Randolph, Vermont, as activists nationwide protest the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Sean Reed, Rayshard Brooks, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others by police and vigilantes. As tensions escalate, what will happen when a battle erupts to remove the Galloping Ghost, the school’s mascot resembling a KKK knight on a horse? Can educators protect students of color from ongoing racist threats?
Baseless: Part I

Baseless: Part I

2020-10-1542:013

This is the truth about the Base, an international terrorist group plotting for a race war. With 83 hours of exclusive secret audio recordings, Part I goes inside their “vetting room.” We expose their methods of recruiting deliberately from the U.S. military, the ways they encourage terroristic behavior, and their expressions of paranoia. It’s also about one reporter who infiltrated this network strategizing for the collapse of America.

Part II exposes the efforts of the Base, a white nationalist group, to develop paramilitary training drills. Using artificial intelligence we uncover patterns of deception found in the exclusive secret recordings from the “vetting room” of these homegrown neo-Nazis. It’s about how they intend to use paramilitary training to instigate the collapse of America. We expose the Base’s underground international network of deceit and terroristic schemes.
Baseless: Part III

Baseless: Part III

2020-10-2947:52

Using secret recordings, Part III reveals what you don’t know about today’s increasingly violent white supremacists, including the Base, one of the most violent neo-Nazi groups in America. It’s about why crimes by these extremists are not properly addressed by law enforcement and how close we’ve come to attempts at mass murder. It’s also about efforts to prevent their apocalyptic fantasies from happening — and about how the Base began to unravel.
In a sneak peek of Season Two’s Baseless, we hear portions of a harrowing conversation with the father of a white supremacist leader who operated The Base’s training compound in Bad Axe, Michigan. Podcast hosts Geraldine Moriba and Jamila Paksima are guided by the compound leader’s father as they tour what remains of the headquarters after an FBI raid. Poring over the remains of the group’s preparations for a race war and the fall of society as we know it, they discuss youth radicalization and white supremacy.
Baseless: Part IV

Baseless: Part IV

2021-05-1249:04

We continue our coverage of the neo-Nazi, accelerationist group The Base with two new episodes of Baseless. This time, Sounds Like Hate examines what parents should be doing to prevent radicalization. With exclusive access to The Base’s headquarters and tactical training grounds in Bad Axe, Michigan, we interview the father of a white supremacist as he explores The Base’s Michigan compound after an FBI raid. 
Baseless: Part V

Baseless: Part V

Part five of Baseless continues the story of a young white supremacist and the family members who tried to intervene after it was too late. We also follow a 21-year-old recruit from Massachusetts who was radicalized in high school to explore the phenomenon of white supremacists who tactically switch from one group to the next. This trail leads us to a New England nationalist socialist group that claims they were at the U.S. Capitol insurrection to protect white people. 
Baseless Update

Baseless Update

2021-05-2108:51

In the first 5 episodes of Baseless you listen to secret recordings of over 100 white supremacists applying for membership to a violent neo-Nazi hate group called The Base. In this bonus episode you’ll hear the latest about the founder, Rinaldo Nazzro, who roams freely, and the members who have been arrested and are now behind bars or awaiting trial.
“Monumental Problems,” Part I, brings us to Florence, Alabama, where a large Confederate monument has loomed in front of the county courthouse since 1903 – but perhaps not for much longer if community members like Camille Bennett get their say. Bennett is the founder of Project Say Something, a local civil rights organization that is rallying the community to decide the fate of the Confederate statue. We follow Bennett as she travels to Montgomery to speak one-on-one with Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill about community control of public spaces and monuments.
In “Monumental Problems,” Part II, Sounds Like Hate producer Jordan Gass-Poore tells a personal story about her Texas Hill Country family. Gass-Poore is the descendant of Confederate veterans, and the choices made by her ancestors generations ago continue to impact the family today. We follow Gass-Poore home to Texas as her family embarks on a painful reckoning with the past. 
Stone Mountain, Georgia, sometimes called the “Mount Rushmore of the Confederacy,” is home to one of the largest stone carvings in the world: An image of Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson is etched into the side of the mountain. “Monumental Problems,” Part III, focuses on Stone Mountain and the “Lost Cause” narratives still widely spread by powerful families and corporations, and how these falsehoods fan the fires of white nationalism.
