Freaknik: A Discourse on a Paradise Lost

Arts & Culture Podcasts >

Endeavor Audio & Mass Appeal present FREAKNIK: A Discourse on a Paradise Lost. Freaknik, the ghost of an annual spring break party in Atlanta, Georgia, has been immortalized through hearsay, gossip and myth. Until now. This series explores the event in the context of the times through the artists, students, business owners, and city officials who contributed to its rise and fall. Produced in partnership with Mass Appeal, the media and entertainment company shaping urban culture, the series will uncover the rich history of Atlanta, the strength in numbers, and the dichotomy of the generational divide that brought the celebration, and nearly the city, to its knees. Freaknik: A Discourse on a Paradise Lost is created and narrated by Christopher Frierson and executive produced by Chris Colbert and DCP Entertainment.
