Podcast Blackout

Content warnings: police violence, racial violence, victims of hate crimes, white supremacy, and police violence. Read by: Shariba Rivers, Pat King, Alexander Danner, Ryan Schile, Bilal Dardai, Duo Yang, Eli McIlveen, Amelia Bethel, Joshua K. Harris, Michael Turrentine, Kathleen Hoil, Marsha Harman, Ele Matelan, Jeffrey Nils Gardner, and Eleanor Hyde. ===================  Today is Wednesday, June 10, 2020. There will not be a new episode of Unwell today. Following the example and the words of Black Lives Matter Chicago, we call for an end to the state violence against and criminalization of Black communities through police forces, an unjust legal system, and federal, state, and local political organizations.  As the artists of HartLife NFP, we call on our fellow art makers in positions of institutional power and privilege to take concrete actions to make your institutions and artistic work explicitly and actively anti-racist.   We affirm our commitment to do the same here. We will interrogate ourselves when we have fallen short of this goal and recommit to do better every time.  The United States is a country founded on land stolen from indigenous peoples, built with the stolen labor and lives of enslaved Black people. We call especially on White listeners to reckon with this fact, today and every day.    The following list is both incomplete and horrifyingly long. These people were victims of hate crimes, police officers and of an unjust, white supremacist system. We say their names and we remember their lives.  Tamir Rice Samuel Dubose Walter Scott Jordan Davis Tony McDade Dion Johnson Dante Parker Michelle Cusseax Laquan McDonald Richard Perkins Nathaniel Harris Pickett Benni Lee Tignor Miguel Espinal Michael Noel Kevin Mathews Bettie Jones Quintonio Legrier Keith Childress Jr Janet Wilson Randy Nelson Antronie Scott George Mann John Crawford III Ezell Ford Aaron Bailey Ronell Foster Stephon Clark Antwon Rose II Tanisha Anderson Alton Sterling Philando Castile Botham Jean Pamela Turner Akai Gurley Rumain Brisbon Trayvon Martin Jerame Reid Mathew Ajibade Frank Smart Alexia Christian Brendon Glenn Victor Manuel Larosa Jonathan Sanders Freddie Blue Joseph Mann Salvado Ellswood Albert Joseph Davis Darrius Steward Billy Ray Davis Michael Sabbie Brian Keith Day Christian Taylor Troy Robinson Natahsa McKenna Tony Robinson Anthony Hill Mya Hall Phillip White Eric Harris Walter Scott William Chapman II Asshams Pharoah Manley Felix Kumi Keith Harrison McLeod Junior Prosper LaMontez Jones Patterson Brown Dominic Hutchinson Anthony Ashford Alonzo Smith Tyree Crawford India Kager La’Vante Biggs Michael Lee Marshall Jamar Clark Wendell Celestine David Joseph Calin Roquemore Dyzhawn Perkins Christopher Davis Marco Loud Peter Gaines Torrey Robinson Darius Robinson Kevin Hicks Mary Truxillo Demarcus Semer Willie Tillman Terrill Thomas Sylville Smith Michael Brown Eric Garner Sandra Bland Fredie Gray Terrence Crutcher Paul O’Neal Alteria Woods Jordan Edwards Dominique Clayton Christopher Whitfield Christopher McCorvey Eric Reason Michael Lorenzo Dean Breonna Taylor Atatiana Jefferson Ahmaud Arbery Doug Lewis George Floyd Manuel Ellis Maurice Gordon Black Lives Matter.

Feed Drop: Family Ghosts

Feed Drop: Family Ghosts

2021-02-1135:121

As we continue to prepare for Season Three of Unwell, launching on February 17, we wanted to share another show we thought you might enjoy: Family Ghosts. Learn more and subscribe to Family Ghosts here: https://familyghostspodcast.com/ Family Ghosts is a (mostly) nonfiction show where real people investigate the truth behind stories that have haunted their families for generations. These aren't ghosts like we see in Mt Absalom- mostly- - rather, they're apocryphal stories that have been repeated over and over for decades - grandmothers who turned out to be jewel smugglers, uncles who vanished without a trace, aunts who stole corpses and hid them in undisclosed locations, parents who started cults, and much, much more. In each episode of the show, someone who feels like they might understand themselves better if they could get to the bottom of one of these mysteries tries to do exactly that, in collaboration with host Sam Dingman. I think you can see why we're so excited to share an episode of Family Ghosts here on the feed- it sounds like Lily could have been part of her own episode of the show. Family Ghosts has just launched their fourth season with a three-episode miniseries about a woman named Kate whose father mysteriously disappeared in the middle of the night in September 1987. From the industrial truck farms of East Baltimore to the newsrooms of New York City to Mount St. Helens, Kate's story has all the twists and turns of a Mt Absalom legend, but the real journey is Kate's own attempt to understand not just what she wants to know, but why she feels like she can't rest until she knows it. If you like the episode you hear today, you can hear all three parts in the Family Ghosts feed. Give it a listen, and go subscribe today! Learn more about your ad choices.

Hi there- Jeffrey here. We're so close to the return of Unwell Season Four- and we're so excited to have the chance to share one more guest episode- Brimstone Valley Mall, written and directed by Kristen DiMercurio. You'll recognize a bunch of Unwell folks from the credits- including Kristen, Regina Renée Russell, Julia Schifini, and myself- I was one of the sound designers for this delightful show. Brimstone Valley Mall is a dark comedy that sends us back to the Malls of the 90s- a deeply nostalgic setting for me- following a group of demons who not only work at the mall, but...play in a band. It's so much fun. Brimstone Valley Mall has a love for its setting that I think Unwell listeners will appreciate- because let me tell you, the malls of the 90s were a unique and occasionally terrifying place. I hope you enjoy! Learn more and listen to Brimstone Valley Mall here! Read a transcript for the episode here. Written, directed & produced by Kristen DiMercurio, co-written by Talia Rochmann & Mark Wolf Roberts, sound design by Jeffrey Nils Gardner In this episode you heard: Misroch, played by Elliot Gindi Belzagor, played by Susannah Wilson Trainee, played by Regina Russell Hornblas, played by Sheldon Brown And the Mall Announcements, played by Kristen DiMercurio Additional voices were played by Julia Schifini, and Mischa Stanton, Our theme music is written and performed by FM Buller.

Would be a great podcast without all the woke crap. And had a gut full of the “occupied lands” rubbish. It’s not their land anymore.

Any other podcasts that feature the person that does the voice of Nora? I am normally not a huge fan of more feminine voices but I could listen to her read the phone book. Her voice is so melodic & soothing!

I know I'm supposed to think Silas is evil, but his voice is so soothing & it makes me want to trust him. He just sounds so pleasant! Like the kind of guy you want your grandfather to be!

I'm unsuscribing from this podcast. There are such long break between episodes it's not worth any recap in new episodes. This podcast had SO MUCH potential and I was very invested in the story. Now, I couldn't care less what happens to these characters. Goodbye, #unwellpodcast
