Episode 97: Pride and Prejudice

The People's Podcast returns and change is afoot. In Episode 96, Jay explains how he ended up making a cameo in When They See Us, tells us about the day he inadvertently got the drop on the "District Detroit" project, and how he's come back from being told he "wasn't cut out for journalism" by a failed editor in 2014.

Episode 92: Survival Tactics

Happy New Year! For the first show of 2019, The People's Podcast goes headlong into the conversation surrounding the groundbreaking Lifetime Documentary "Surviving R. Kelly". As you recall, Episode 45 hit R. Kelly and his enablers right between the eyes.

It gets raw and very real as...
