The Promise Podcast

I GREATLY enjoy listening to other Podcasts. What is old is truly new again as podcasts remind me of the family sitting around the radio to hear a great radio show in the 40s and 50s. I am constantly amazed at the quality of the shows that I listen to and wanted to share that information with our readers. So I checked out this called “The Promise” this is a limited-run series about life in public housing, smack in the middle of a city on the rise — stories of a neighborhood in flux, a community defined by its struggles and the growing divide threatening its very existence basically it’s about poor people in the projects and rich people who live in the same vicinity on the hills. Right away I thought this was about to be a podcast about poor black people being exploited for the lack of education and poverty but I was pleasantly surprised. Turns out the host listens to complaints one of which is the separation and she challenges it by taking a dude called “Big Man” up to meet one of the rich white people. I was actually very intrigued by this rest of the show. It was very compelling. Check it out here
