Episode 99: Bounce Music As Praxis (with April Ryan, feat. HaSizzle)

This week, we take some time to process what happened in Charlottesville, and talk about how to persevere in the age of emboldened white supremacy.  Then we chat with April Ryan, the National Association of Black Journalists' "Journalist of the Year," on twenty years spent in the White House press briefing room. We check in with Vice News DC Bureau Chief Shawna Thomas and BuzzFeed political reporter Darren Sands about how they ask difficult questions and cover news in 2017. Plus: HaSizzle, New Orleans' legendary bounce artist, reminds us that even in the darkest of times, booty-bouncing is healing. This show was taped live at One Eyed Jacks in New Orleans on August 10, 2017.Read How To Be A Better Ally: An Open Letter To White FolksFollow our guests: Follow us at @heavenrants and @brokeymcpovertyEmail us: anotherround@buzzfeed.comSubscribe to the Another Round newsletter at buzzfeed.com/anotherround/newsletterMerch is back!
