Perhaps best known for her seminal autobiography I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou is one of the most celebrated literary minds in history, whose poetry and prose has touched generations of readers. But before Caged Bird, Angelou danced and sang on and off Broadway, earned the moniker “Miss Calypso” in the 1950s, called dozens of American cities and African nations home, and even became the first Black woman to work as a cable car conductor in San Francisco. On this episode of Making, host Brandon Pope leads a conversation on Maya Angelou's early days and what made her who she was. Joining him is Rita Coburn, co-director of the Peabody-Award-winning PBS documentary Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise; Randal Jelks, professor of African and African American studies and American studies at the University of Kansas; and a legend in her own right, Dr. Maxine Mimms, the founder of the Tacoma Campus of Evergreen State College and a longtime friend of Angelou.

“I would not go back and second guess the choices that I made back then, or now.” Carol Cain Denise talks to Carol Cain, journalist, broadcaster, and Emmy award-winning producer, who earned her stripes in the business without the benefit of a news department at CBS. Since her third-grade teacher tasked her with being editor of the school paper, her course was set, and she's loved both the print and television sides of her professional career. She's been a reporter, columnist, editor, and host, on just about every major network there is. And she says none of it would have been possible without the loving support of her family and life partner Jim Stapleton. Cain learned a valuable lesson early in her career when she turned down an opportunity because she didn't want to work with someone who had a wanton reputation. Rather than be labeled as a “troublemaker” had she tried to do something about it, she took a pass. “Sometimes you just have to say no.” One right decision led to another as her career moved from journalist to broadcaster organically. Cain admits she was naïve in thinking that she'd be rewarded simply because she worked hard. Now she knows, and advises, the importance of networking and finding good mentors. Sometimes knowing the right person leads to opening doors you never thought of walking through. Like Denise, Cain is one of seven children. Although unlike Denise, she is the youngest of her siblings and therefore, “listened a lot!” Cain says she's naturally inquisitive but has honed her interviewer skills over many years, putting herself into her audience's shoes—asking what she believes they most want to know. Not surprisingly having worked in news media for so long, Cain's favorite Detroit moment weaves together the 1967 Detroit Riots and Detroit Tiger Willie Horton's courage and kindness. Stay tuned to hear the one question Carol, ever the investigator, can't keep herself from asking Denise! *** Carol Cain, 13-time Emmy award-winning senior producer, is the host of "Michigan Matters," Detroit's highly-rated weekly public affairs show on CBS. She also hosts and produces CBS Detroit's "Eye on The Future" TV specials and has been nominated for a Peabody Award. Cain began her career at United Press International, the Toledo Blade and was a nationally syndicated columnist at The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press, where she continues to write a Sunday column. Cain has received numerous awards for her work and steadfast focus on diversity. A native Detroiter, Cain attended city public schools and earned a BA from Michigan State University and an MBA from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Denise Ilitch, an owner of Ilitch Family Companies and President of Ilitch Enterprises, has been a part of Detroit's business and philanthropic community for over 40 years. As a mother, lawyer, entrepreneur, devoted community servant and tireless advocate for women and children, she learned early, from her father, that everyone is worthy of contributing to the world. Her passion for affordable, accessible, quality education stems from her own experience as a first-generation student, earning a bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan, where she currently serves on the Board of Regents, and a law degree from the University of Detroit Law School.

Peabody Award Honoree, ACLU, Emory University, C-Span, Writer, HistorianThe United States Supreme Court will soon consider a major redistricting case that could have significant nationwide implications. In Milligan v. Merrill (now known as Merrill v. Milligan before the Supreme Court), in which LDF is delivering oral arguments, the Court will determine whether Alabama's new congressional map violates the Voting Rights Act (VRA) of 1965 by placing Black voters into legislative districts in a way that dilutes their political power.

How does one of the world's most renowned photographers humanize data? Can ordinary people do extraordinary things? What is true power? Platon is one of the world's most renowned portrait photographers, having photographed more world leaders than anyone else in history, including six American presidents. He has photographed over 30 covers for TIME Magazine, including their 2008 Vladimir Putin Person of The Year cover, which was awarded 1st prize at the World Press Photo Contest. In 2008, Platon signed on as staff photographer to the New Yorker, winning a Peabody Award and two National Magazine Awards for his photo essays. He has published four books with subjects ranging from the power of world leaders to the dignity of those who serve in the US Military. In 2013, Platon founded The People's Portfolio, a non-profit foundation dedicated to celebrating emerging leaders of human rights and civil rights around the world. The People's Portfolio creates a visual language that breaks barriers, uplifts dignity, fights discrimination, and enlists the public to support human rights around the world. Platon is currently on the board for Arts and Culture at the World Economic Forum. Platon's life's work is the subject of a Netflix documentary, Abstract: The Art of Design. His first film, My Body Is Not A Weapon, features survivors of wartime sexual violence and 2018 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Dr. Denis Mukwege.

And Ramy won't forget to remind you that the accolades are to be spread across the team behind the series. Ramy grew up in New Jersey, and loved to create content with his closest friends. Part way through college, an acting gig got him to Los Angeles.

“A VIOLINIST OF HEART-MELTING TALENT.” – The Wall Street Journal “DAZZLING SKILLS AND A MONA LISA SMILE.” – The Washington Post A very special episode with violinist, singer, actress Lucia Micarelli! Born in Queens, New York, Lucia has been immersed in the arts since the age of three. After attending the Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music, Lucia began to develop a growing interest in non-classical music. She started moonlighting with local jazz and rock bands in New York clubs, and she was offered to tour with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra as a featured violinist and concertmaster. In addition, she's been a featured soloist in two of Josh Groban's world tours, toured extensively with Chris Botti and was featured in his “Live From Boston” PBS special along with being featured in Barbra Streisand's 2013 international tour. She also released two solo studio albums, “Music From A Farther Room” and “Interlude”. But 2009 saw Lucia broadening her career even further when she was cast in the starring role of “Annie” in HBO's critically acclaimed series, “Treme”, created by David Simon and Eric Overmeyer, which ran for four seasons and won a Peabody Award as well as a Primetime Emmy Award. Since then, Lucia's profile has continued to soar. In 2018, Lucia appeared in her first PBS concert special, which aired throughout the US and spawned the live album “An Evening with Lucia Micarelli”. In 2020, Lucia joined the Hallmark Family and starred in the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries holiday movie “The Christmas Bow” alongside Michael Rady. Whether on stage or screen, Lucia is sure to take you on an eclectic journey through her many musical influences - from classical to jazz to traditional fiddle music and Americana - all bound together by her trademark emotional vulnerability and technical wizardry.

The story of The Real Ambassadors, a jazz musical created by Dave Brubeck and Iola Brubeck for Louis Armstrong in the 1950/60s. The original show, featured Louis Armstrong, Carmen McCrae, Dave Brubeck and Lambert Hendricks and Bavan, and was performed live only once, at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1962. This year's Monterey Jazz Festival, September 23-25, 2022, is the 60th Anniversary of the performance. The musical is based on the Jazz Ambassadors Program established by President Eisenhower and the US State Department during the Cold War as an effort to win hearts and minds around the world. Jazz musicians were sent out to represent the freedom and creativity of America through their art form. The irony is that Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and most of the other Jazz Ambassadors were Black—they were treated like royalty around the world, but could not stay in hotels or play in integrated bands in their own country. The Brubeck's musical was a chance for Louis Armstrong to speak out about his deep feelings about racism and segregation in this country — feelings he rarely expressed publicly. The story features original music, rare archival recorded letters back and forth between the Brubecks and Louis Armstrong about the project, rehearsal recordings and interviews with Dave and Iola Brubeck. Other voices include: the Brubeck's sons, Chris and Dan Brubeck; Keith Hatschek, author of newly released book, "The Real Ambassadors;” Ricky Riccardi, Director of Research Collections for the Louis Armstrong House Museum; and singer/actress Yolande Bavan, the last surviving performer involved in the project. The Real Ambassadors is a poignant tale of cultural exchange, anti-racism, jazz history, and it's a love story—between life-long husband and wife partners, Iola and Dave Brubeck and their vision for a better world. The Peabody Award winning Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva, have created hundreds of stories for NPR, public media and their Webby Award-winning podcast “The Kitchen Sisters Present.” Brandi Howell is a member of The Kitchen Sisters team and the producer of The Echo Chamber, a podcast about music and its social impact. The Real Ambassadors was produced by The Kitchen Sisters (Nikki Silva and Davia Nelson) and Brandi Howell in collaboration with Jackson Spenner. Mixed by Jim McKee. Thanks to Keith Hatschek, Chris, Brubeck, Dan Brubeck, Ricky Riccardi, Yolande Bavan; Lisa Cohen; and Wynton Marsalis.

Where conversation flows as life is explored -- that's where the new podcast, Rhythm of Life, begins. Initial episodes include filmmaker Bob Hercules delving into the art of documentary filmmaking including his most recent project, the Peabody Award-winning “Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise.” Subsequent episodes will feature fascinating discussions with producer/filmmakers Steve Ordower and David Kovacs, gospel and R&B legend Mavis Staples, and Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). Newton Minow, former chair of the FCC, reflects on how the media and television, which he called “a vast wasteland” have evolved. Stephan Garnett, lecturer at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, shares his perspective on the state of journalism today. Actor Ernie Hudson and musician and political activist Jon Langford chat about the rhythms of their lives in the arts.
Joining us from Oklahoma City are brothers, rappers and actors known as Lil Mike and Funny Bone, who received national recognition after their viral performance on America's Got Talent in 2013 where they showcased their Indigenous heritage through their original rap song “Do The Rain Dance” that wowed the judges and audiences alike. As of last fall, the pair have recurred as the equally hilarious and talented brothers Mose and Mekko on the hit FX on Hulu comedy series Reservation Dogs which, while snubbed at the Emmys, won the AFI Award, Independent Spirit Award, Peabody Award and Gotham Award for its premiere season. The two chat with us about their initial rejection for America's Got Talent, and the eventual straight offer to appear on the show nearly a decade ago, as well as their experience working on Reservation Dogs and the series' immense impact for Indigenous representation in entertainment. It was during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic that the two first received word about the upcoming series pilot casting from their managers after their concert tour dates were canceled and they were on the lookout for their next booking. They shared that after looking at the script, the characters were not what they initially expected, “They were eleven-year old kids!” Lil Mike shared. “Their lines had cuss words in them, so we asked ‘can we change this up a little? And these jokes aren't really funny enough.' And [casting] said ‘make it your own!'” And they did exactly that, asking their brother to read the other lines and send in their audition tape to casting, and quickly received an offer. To find out more of their journey with Reservation Dogs, watch the full interview above, or listen on your favorite podcast platform. Reservation Dogs streams new episodes Tuesdays on Hulu under the FX on Hulu content hub.

Crip Camp is a Peabody Award-winning documentary from Netflix and Higher Ground Productions that tells the story of Camp Jened, a summer camp in the 1960s where disabled youth could be themselves. The film follows several former campers who went on to be leaders of the Disability Rights Movement. Laura speaks with the directors and producers of Crip Camp about how they are using the film to advance the next step in the revolution: Disability Justice, a movement that centers the leadership of disabled queer, trans, Black, Indigenous, and people of color. If the inclusive culture of Camp Jened could help transform American society in the second half of the 20th century, what could a truly intersectional Disability Justice Movement change for us all today?

You really should watch City of Ghosts. It's on Netflix, six episodes long, and it's a delightful and important exploration of Los Angeles, cultures, and how we manage history. City of Ghosts also happens to be, at least at first glance, a show for children. It's animated and features a group of kid characters who fan out across L.A. to interview and record the ghosts that live there. It's guileless and smart and often very funny.Elizabeth Ito created the show. She wanted to create something less intense and anxious for her son, who often got overwhelmed by children's shows. She also wanted to pay tribute to her hometown and the people and cultures that have been there. You can tell City of Ghosts comes from the heart.Unfortunately, the show was canceled after just one season. Then it won the prestigious Peabody Award. And all of this made for a tremendous emotional roller coaster for Elizabeth, who is prone to anxiety and depression. She joins us to talk about the need to create and the wringer that being an artist in the practical world puts her through.Watch City of Ghosts on Netflix.

Rich appeared in featured roles on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, MADtv, the feature film High Fidelity and numerous TV ads including A&W Root Beer's classic commercial, "Mr. Dumass.” more at richtalarico.com . Rich is a WGAw Show Captain for Key & Peele Rich's recent interview I just did with latenightist, that explains the issues I'm campaigning on https://latenightist.com/q_and_a/pay-your-writers-a-q-and-a-with-rich-talarico-of-key-peele/ Rich's official campaign site for his WGA Board Seat Campaign: https://elections.wga.org/2022/rich-talarico WHY RICH IS RUNNNG FOR THE WGA BOARD Comedy writers have not been and are not being appropriately paid by the studios, and we need the Guild's help in this fight. Unfair use and numerous, MBA violations affects not just Key & Peele, but virtually all comedy writers, including many of the most known, most beloved shows. Royalty payments are distributed to heirs, and heirs of heirs. We need systemic change as companies continue to egregiously violate the 5 minute promotional clip exemption in our contract. Additionally, WGA writers' material is being unjustly exhibited on www.cc.com as an "Archive" (but we are not being paid archival rates) and according to MBA, "archival is not promotional." We need fair back pay for any and all Archival Postings exhibited on the cc.com. In addition to seeking better transparency between the studios and WGA, I pledge to advocate for improved communication between writers and the Guild. OVER-PROMOTION & THE ABUSE OF THE 5 MIN PROMO CLIP RULE First, what is a clip? The industry standard on what a promo clip is, has long been established as “Merv Griffin” style bits to entice the audience to watch/buy. Longer than something you would see on a talk show is too long. And, Viacom flooding the promotional space with hundreds upon hundreds of “promo” clips (many of which are illegally over the five minute limit) destroys us financially and will ultimately devastate all comedy writers' livelihoods. You consume a sketch show differently than you would consume a sitcom or drama. A clip from a sitcom or drama would entice you to watch the full episode or season, which you would theoretically have to pay for, while a sketch show clip would entice you to watch more sketches, which are currently available for free. This is not promotional use. This is not a fair and reasonable reading of the MBA "promo exemption clause." While the MBA is silent on the number of clips that can be used as excerpts, it is not fair and reasonable to gobble up whole shows and display them as “promotional.” The clips fail to be excerpts-- if the entire show can be watched for free in excerpt form. The promotion, in our case, is the exhibition. As we've argued since 2013, five to ten clips per season should be sufficient to entice an audience to buy. Originally, the Guild backed us on this, but have since chosen to ignore these violations. Key & Peele only has 298 sketches in total. As of December, 2020 (just on YouTube) there were over 350 “promotional” full-sketch uploads and Viacom continues to add more day by day. Of these 350+ uploads, there are (at least) 35 compilations which include bundles of Key & Peele sketches, some of these are longer than the length of full episodes. There are also uploads that exceed seven, eight, and 12 hours. This does not even account for Facebook, TikTok, Instagram and other platforms where there are also hundreds of millions of “promotional” streams.

But a lot of us know her as one of the voices and minds behind the Peabody-Award winning Mystery Science Theater 3000, and over the last few years as a part of the comedy duo Bridget and Mary Jo on the Rifftrax video series. Their most recent release is a new riff on the 1962 cult film The Brain that Wouldn't Die.
Paul Mecurio has achieved a level of success in comedy that budding comics only dream of. He's a writer on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert; he was a founding writer on The Daily Show, for which he won Emmy and Peabody Awards; he hosted a one-man Off-Broadway show called “Permission to Speak with Paul Mecurio”; he's hosted shows on Comedy Central and HBO; he had his own comedy special; and he's a regular opinion contributor on “CBS Sunday Morning.” But all this success came at an incredibly stressful cost. After graduating Georgetown Law School with high honors, Paul worked as a lawyer on Wall Street at a top-tier international law firm and as an investment banker at Credit Suisse, executing multi-billion-dollar M&A transactions for Fortune 100 companies. He was living the life everybody thinks they want, making a ton of money and enjoying the trappings that kind of success brings. All the while, Paul was writing jokes and living a double life, working in boardrooms by day and sneaking off to comedy clubs by night to feed an insatiable need to follow his passion for comedy.

The True Crime Reporter® Podcast features stories and interviews from the respective careers of investigative reporter Robert Riggs and former U.S. prosecutor Bill Johnston. Listeners have asked how both of them got involved in investigating criminal cases. In response, the podcast featured an episode with Riggs on July 4, 2022, explaining how he first got involved digging for information during the Watergate scandal case while working for Congressman Wright Patman. In this episode, we cover the highlights of Bill Johnston's distinguished law career. Bill devoted his career as a federal prosecutor to, in effect, protect the sheep from the wolves. He helped launch the manhunt for notorious serial killer Kenneth Allen McDuff who tortured and murdered countless young women. His role in bringing McDuff to justice and prosecuting the Texas Parole Board Chairman official who released McDuff under a cloud of corruption is featured in the Fox Nation documentary Freed To Kill. Johnston became the cohost of the True Crime Reporter® podcast with Peabody Award-winning investigative reporter Robert Riggs in 2021. Johnston had a guilty verdict returned in every federal prosecution in hundreds of jury trials that he undertook during his 14-year career with the U.S. Department of Justice. A noteworthy criminal case includes the Branch Davidian cult members who murdered four ATF agents during a raid on their heavily armed compound outside Waco. The Texas Rangers, rather than FBI agents, were Johnston's go-to investigators for complex murder cases. He managed a team of Rangers to investigate the crime scene at the Davidian compound after the end of the controversial inferno. Johnston successfully prosecuted a mail bomber which was the first case tried under the U.S. Violence Against Women Act. Other firsts include the first jury trial in the United States in which mitochondrial DNA (hair without root) was used in evidence against a violent “car-jacking” defendant who caused the death of an elderly man in Texas. He received a mandatory life sentence without parole. Here's Robert's interview with Bill. We want to become your favorite true crime podcast. Please leave a review wherever you listen.
