Description

In the spirit of the last stanza of the Black National Anthem, we rise from the past, rooted deeply in the soil of ancestral struggles, to build a home, to claim our space. On Native Land Pod, Angela Rye, Tiffany Cross, and Andrew Gillum guide us through the political landscape, wielding insights and unapologetic analysis, unraveling the threads that connect Black Americans and marginalized communities to a place they courageously call home.

In each episode, Angela, Tiffany and Andrew embark on a journey of reflection, taking stock of the news of the week and the country's road to the polls.

Join us each week as we navigate the dance between past and present, weaving a narrative of hope, empowerment, and the unyielding strength that defines the journey to reclaim 'Native Land.' This isn't just news analysis; it's a movement, a conversation, and a testament to the power of those who dare to rebuild and redefine the meaning of home.

WHAT A WEEK y’all, we got lots to unpack.    Today hosts Angela Rye, Andrew Gillum, and Tiffany Cross have a candid conversation about the recent political violence at a Trump rally, the imminent threat of another Trump presidency, and debate what Democrats can do to turn the tide.    We know you watched the debate and we know you’ve heard all the facts about the assassination attempt. Now we’re asking— how do we deal?? We are mentally, emotionally, and spiritually drained y’all— but we cannot give up!    Angela and Andrew debate the viability of Biden’s candidacy with Tiffany moderating (because she finds herself somewhere in between) ended up m. Angela flexes her D.C. political knowledge and drops some gems on how to turn the tide for the Biden campaign. Tiffany brings us some important news you may have missed amongst all the noise. And all three grapple with the overwhelming emotions of this incredible political moment.    And as always, we’ll hear from you, our #NLPFam listeners.    We are 110 days away from the election. Welcome home y’all!     Sign our letter to the Biden administration to defend DEI initiatives and the Fearless Fund at this link.   —--------- We want to hear from you!

NLP Fam: Meet us in our Frantz Fanon because it’s giving a major philosophical pod! Some of us may be experiencing a heat wave this week, but today’s conversation about the shallow end and the deep end is only metaphorically related to a pool: Is it safer, in life and in relationships with others, to go deep or to stay shallow? In this week’s MiniPod, hosts Angela Rye, Tiffany Cross, and Andrew Gillum unpack the many sides of that question and discuss how depth can be both intellectual and emotional, and how perceived shallowness can sometimes be deceptively deep. We all choose the moments where we reveal our depth to others, or even to ourselves. How do we make those choices? Welcome home y’all!  —--------- We want to hear from you!

This week hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum are LIVE AT ESSENCE FEST on the G.B.E.F. stage with Congresswoman Jasmine Crockett and voting rights activist Crystal Mason. Marilyn Mosby was supposed to join for this talk about the politics of the attacks on Black women, but ironically she was barred from attending due to her house arrest…    Sign the petition to pardon Marilyn Mosby at justiceformarilynmosby.com.   This conversation covers historic and ongoing attacks against the Black community including voter suppression and the criminalization of law abiding citizens. At NLP we’re about taking ACTION and we’re coming at you with a plan. There is plenty we can DO not only to protect ourselves, but to move forward with resilience, and take meaningful steps towards a more equitable nation.

In a disturbing recent trend, multiple promising legal efforts and programs that addressed longstanding systems of inequality have been shut down and challenged.   Last month, the U.S. Court of Appeals blocked Fearless Fund from awarding grants to historically underfunded women of color-led businesses. In Evanston, Illinois, the historic municipal reparations program is now being challenged in court. And the Oklahoma Supreme Court dismissed a suit filed by survivors of one of the worst incidents of racial violence in U.S. history, occurring in Tulsa in 1921.   On this week’s MiniPod, hosts Angela Rye, Tiffany Cross, and Andrew Gillum discuss these alarming recent developments and strategize on the present and future of Black progress.   SIGN OUR LETTER to President Biden, click on this link.     Welcome home y’all!    —--------- We want to hear from you!

It’s been an eventful week, y’all!    IMMUNE. That’s what the Supreme Court said is the case for any “official” act taken by a sitting US President. Boy are they tearing this country up.    To quote the dissenting opinion written by Justice Sotomayor, “Orders the Navy's Seal Team 6 to assassinate a political rival? Immune. Organizes a military coup to hold onto power? Immune. Takes a bribe in exchange for a pardon? Immune. Immune, immune, immune… In every use of official power, the president is now a king above the law.” Justice Soto, we join your dissent!    The hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum dive into what this crisis of a ruling really means for the rest of us.   In what is undeniably a difficult political moment, we want to provide y’all some ways to take action.

This week hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum take a look at the democratic primary race between progressive Jamaal Bowman and moderate George Latimer. The race was the most expensive House primary race in US history for ad buys…but it’s more than just AIPAC money that impacted the outcome. Angela challenges the divide between Democrats and the group has some analysis that the mainstream missed.    Then, it’s OFFICIAL—social media can be bad for you. As if we didn’t know! The Department of Health and Human Services issued new social media health guidelines for kids, while the Surgeon General called for social media to come with a warning label, like cigarettes. But how necessary are these measures, really?    In Politics Are Everywhere, X, formerly known as Twitter, announced a distribution deal with Verzuz, which was created by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.  Folks were outraged at the pictures of Swizz and Timabland hanging out with Elon Musk and that the announcement came out Juneteenth. Did they sell out or is it Elon who’s getting played OR a little more nuanced??    Stick around for a SPICY conversation at the end of the show. Tiffany brings us news from Kenya, where the self-described Gen Z’ers have stormed Kenya’s parliament in protest of a highly unpopular tax bill. President Ruto has since conceded to the protestors’ demands and vetoed the bill. Tiffany finds parallels between the young people protesting in Kenya and our own youth-led protests here in the states, while Andrew hears echoes of another set of protestors.    With the weather heating up, it’s a nice time to remind folks that the Summer EBT program is in full swing. You can find out how to get your SUN bucks at the USDA website.    And of course we’ll hear from you, our #NLPFan listeners. We are 131 days away from the election.

On this week’s MiniPod hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum try to have a conversation about who Trump will pick for Vice President… They end up nerding out with esteemed brother, writer, and attorney Elie Mystal about the 12th amendment.    Yet again, a little known legal rule could have a huge impact on the outcome of the election, and the future of the country.   Welcome home y’all!    —--------- We want to hear from you!

From Poles to Polls

From Poles to Polls

2024-06-2001:22:19

This week hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum share the results of our NLP Election Poll. Y’all responded in FORCE! 336 people took part in our poll, which is more than some national polls. Thank  you, NLP Fam!! Our poll shows slightly different results on the attitudes of Black voters, maybe because we actually polled Black people…   You can check out an overview of our poll at this link.    In Politics Are Everywhere, Nunsense (Tiff’s word) Addition–a Texas Democrat running for County Commissioner has been caught acting a FOOL! Taral Patel was arrested for sending himself fake racist messages on social media, messages that he put together in a collage and shared with his supporters. You can’t make up this NUNSENSE.   Speaking of nunsense, the Biden campaign just spent $50 million on a new ad that Angela thinks may have missed the mark. She’ll offer some free advice on how to make an effective ad while Tiffany and Andrew debate if the ads matter at all.    And in more important news, Tiffany catches us up on the most severe war-related humanitarian crisis in the world. No, it’s not Gaza. It’s Sudan, where millions of Sudanese people have been displaced and are at risk of famine. Surprised? Well, we’re not surprised that you’re surprised, because news from the continent is so under-covered!!    Support Sudan at this link.    And of course we’ll hear from you, our #NLPFan listeners.

We all have had stories about Black fathers—some of them remarkably negative from absenteeism to battles with child support and numerous “baby mamas.” On this week’s MiniPod, however, cohost Andrew Gillum, wants to challenge the narrative with facts. According to the CDC, Black fathers are more likely to be involved in activities with their children compared to white and Hispanic fathers AND ANDREW IS ONE OF THEM!  Angela Rye and Tiffany Cross join Andrew in sharing their own experiences and memories of their fathers while also discussing the challenges, myths and misconceptions of Black fatherhood.   —---------   Welcome home y’all!    We want to hear from you!

Hunter Biden was found guilty for marking on an application that he was neither an addict nor a drug abuser on an application for a firearm he owned briefly. He’s facing a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. The case calls into question the “wisdom” of our current Attorney General and puts a spotlight on an issue too many of us are familiar with: the criminalization of addiction.     This week Tiffany Cross has just come back from Côte d’Ivoire with stories and insights to share with co-hosts, Angela Rye and Andrew Gillum. Tiffany’s trip made her think: are Black folks in the states always checking what they’re saying, doing—even WEARING—to cater to white folks?    The Supreme Court will make decisions on a number of consequential cases this summer, including access to abortion pills, regulation of social media sites, and whether Trump is immune from prosecution for crimes committed in office. Watch out y’all, the activist court is ready to trash more of our rights.   And in Politics Are Everywhere, soccer star Vinícius Júnior conquered racism if even for a moment after three Spanish fans who hurled racist insults at him during a soccer match in 2023 were sentenced to 8 months in prison. It marks the first ever conviction in Spain for racial abuse at a soccer match. Vinícius responds to the conviction on Twitter, “I am a tormentor of racists.”  And we are here for THAT torment!!    Of course we’ll hear from you, our #NLPFam.    We are 145 days away from the election.

On this week’s MiniPod, hosts Angela Rye, Andrew Gillum and Tiffany Cross continue their discussion of Trump’s privileged treatment by the justice system. Certainly OUR justice system is much less forgiving. So should the system work for everyone like it works for Trump??   And they have some words of caution for Democrats celebrating Trump’s conviction by gleefully labeling him a “felon.”    —---------   Welcome home y’all!    We want to hear from you!

I Beg Your Pardon?

I Beg Your Pardon?

2024-06-0601:12:29

Should Biden issue a pardon to Donald Trump for his federal crimes? Will that help with America’s standing or do we have 99 OTHER problems and Trump ain’t one?! There have been some Republicans and Democrats calling for a preemptive Trump pardon. Is this kind of grace-giving exactly what’s wrong with the Democratic Party?     Also, can Trump vote now that he’s been convicted? In Florida, where Trump lives, folks with felonies have limited voting rights and Trump does not qualify. BUT Florida's Governor, Ron DeSantis, has signaled that he’ll bend (READ: Break!) the law to allow Trump to vote. The hosts also take a look at voting after conviction more broadly and the stigma that follows returning citizens even after they’ve served their time.      The hosts also dissect a viral video of a man who faced incarceration after driving with a suspended license…hilarious as it may seem, there’s more to this video that mainstream media missed.   And of course we’ll hear from you, our #NLPFam—keep sending in your questions and comments on IG @nativelandpod.    We are 152 days away from the election.

Polls Be Damned?!

Polls Be Damned?!

2024-05-3001:25:15

Our prayers are with the families of those with loved ones in Rafah, but most importantly our calls to action are too. Where do we go from here, y’all? This week hosts Andrew Gillum, Angela Rye, and Tiffany Cross ask how many red lines have to be crossed before the Biden Administration takes meaningful action.    Speaking of Biden, there’s growing panic within the Democratic Party over increasing signs that the President is STRUGGLING to gain a lead in the 2024 election over white-supremacist and would-be-tyrant Donald Trump. The hosts look at the “signs” and debate the usefulness of election polling.      And in this week’s deep dive, the hosts respond to listener questions about folks in the community who question voting for Biden and who his base really is. We know y’all are struggling with this year’s presidential election and the feeling that folks have to choose between “the lesser of two evils”. The hosts navigate this struggle for themselves—IN REAL TIME—and offer some tips on how to talk to friends and family about it.    Gaza has been in the news a lot lately, including some truly horrific videos that have been coming from Rafah this last week. Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to continue his assault on the city despite the civilian casualties and increasing condemnation from the international community. So, what are we going to do about it?? SOMETHING. The call to act is upon us.    Sign the petition to support a presidential pardon for Marilyn Mosby at justiceformarilynmosby.com…yep, STILL.    Take part in our NLP poll by clicking here.   We are 159 days away from the election.

This week hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum discuss the “N” word—who should say it and who should not?    With an eye towards history and pop culture, the hosts look at why some folks choose to use this word—and use it, and use it, and use it—while others think that not even Black folks should say it. Along with funny stories about their personal relationships with this powerful word, we’ll hear about how the NAACP gave the “N" word a funeral, and touch on the politics of the “N” word in the Kendrick v. Drake hip-hop beef.    Welcome home y’all!    —--------- We want to hear from you!

Black women are under attack—from eyelashes in Congress, to venture funds for Black businesses.  This week’s episode is a recording of Native Land Pod’s first LIVE audience show! Hosts Angela Rye, Tiffany Cross, and Andrew Gillum paid a visit to the women’s global leadership summit, ExcelerateHER, in Miami for a town hall takeover!   The hosts take questions from esteemed conference attendees about how the Black community can best harness its political power, and counter the forces of bigotry and exclusion. They’ll confront specific issues facing the community, like financial literacy and racially charged attacks, and offer tangible solutions. This episode is all about strategy, action, and solidarity y’all!    Notable questioners featured in this week’s show include, Luvvie Ajayi Jones, Brittany Packnett Cunningham, Bevy Smith, Jewel Burks Solomon, and Jessica Nabongo.   We are 165 days away from the election.

This week hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum ask: when will we see a Black woman in the US Senate?? The United States has only ever had three Black women as senators. Currently there are none, but two candidates may change that come November…    Speaking of elections, what’s up with these Trump surrogates already denying the ‘24 election before it’s even happened? And what will actually happen if Trump loses in November but his supporters don’t accept the results? The hosts discuss this and the relevance (or not) of presidential debates.    Then, our resident expert on all things FAMU, Andrew Gillum, covers the drama coming out of his alma mater. Florida A&M University received a $237 MILLION dollar donation last week, complete with a huge check that they showed off at graduation. But it turns out the whole thing was a hoax??   In Politics Are Everywhere— Welcome to the W!

I did not realize how I missed your voices. I was 4 minutes into the podcast when I knew that I had a new favorite one. Your transparency was jarring and appreciated. I can't wait for the next episode. Finally, I am really going to need you all to get through 2024 with my sanity intact. PEACE.
