Brittany tells the incredible story of a person you should have heard of by now, but probably haven’t.
The Nod is off this week, but Brittany and Eric are still here to present Uncivil, Gimlet Media’s newest show. Uncivil is a history podcast that goes back to the moment when the divisions in this country turned into a war. The show ransacks the official version of the Civil War—with untold stories about covert operations, corruption, resistance and mutiny.
In this week’s bonus episode, Brittany and Eric share the story of their recent trip to New Orleans. Because what happens in New Orleans… doesn’t stay in New Orleans, at least when it comes to these two.
Brittany talks to a man who dresses and cooks like his enslaved ancestors. And Eric drags Brittany to see a famous pit.
We return to debate if the #LawrenceHive’s hero is “hella good” or “bad as f**k” with Bim Adewunmi and Aaron Edwards, recorded live at the Now Hear This Podcast Festival.
