Sisters of the Underground is an 8-episode scripted series by Executive Producers Eva Longoria and Dania Ramirez.

Their lifelong activism in the Dominican Republic and state-orchestrated assassination ignited outrage that led to the downfall of one of the most brutal and enduring dictators of the 20th Century, Rafael Trujillo (aka El Jefe). This series takes us back to a period when the Mirabal Sisters inspired an entire nation to emancipate themselves from a tyrannical regime that lasted for more than 30 years. While the martyrdom of the Mirabal Sisters is the stuff of legend in the DR, Sisters of the Underground brings these hidden figures to life for a global audience in a vivid, immersive, audio drama.   Listen here and subscribe to Sisters of the Underground on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Hi, Stuff you Missed in History Class! Partition is a historical podcast that will discuss the 1947 Partition of India and the formation of Pakistan as told by me, Neha Aziz. About Partition: Partition is a historical podcast that will discuss the 1947 Partition of India and the formation of Pakistan as told by me, Neha Aziz. I was born in Karachi, Pakistan in 1990, and always knew that Pakistan used to be a part of India. However, it wasn't until my first trip back to my home country in 2017 that I found out the devastating truth at an exhibit at the mall. Learning about partition inspired me to dig into the subject more, especially because I have no recollection of learning about it in school, and neither my parents or relatives ever spoke to me about it. It all started when Britain decided they could no longer afford to control India.They granted them independence and announced that a new country, Pakistan would also be formed. They severed the country in such a way that friends and neighbors became enemies and murderers.  All facts said in the podcast are true and accurate, but I will be providing anecdotes and commentary as they relate to my discovery and research of Partition. This year marks the 75th anniversary, and it is high time that this story is revealed to the masses.  Listen here and subscribe to Partition on the iHeartRadio app or wherever you get your podcasts!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
