Listen to NPR Podcast: Louder Than A Riot
Louder Than A Riot, a short-run podcast from NPR Music, hosted by Rodney Carmichael and Sidney Madden, examines the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. This first narrative podcast series from NPR Music will explore one of the most pressing civil rights issues of our time through the stories and sounds of hip-hop artists. Weekly episodes will be available starting Thursday, October 8.
Each week, Rodney Carmichael, NPR Music's resident hip-hop writer, and Sidney Madden, NPR Music reporter and editor, will profile and interview prominent figures in hip-hop such as Bobby Shmurda, Nipsey Hussle, Killer Mike, Mac Phipps, Master P, Noname, Yo Gotti, DJ Drama and Isis Tha Saviour, along with hip-hop critics, criminal justice experts and activists, to interrogate the criminal justice system's discriminatory impact on Black America and other communities of color.
Each episode uses the experiences of hip-hop artists to investigate a different aspect of the justice system — from RICO laws and racial profiling to plea deals and probation.
