A Friday full of podcasts for your weekend listening pleasure. Here we go:
Interfaith Radio: Millions are tuning in to watch the sermons of T.D. Jakes, Creflo Dollar and other black televangelists. We speak with Jonathan Walton, the author of Watch This!, the first definitive study of these charismatic and often controversial preachers, whose stars are rising, thanks in part to the burgeoning African-American middle class.
KPFA’s Against the Grain: Maybe you think the push for racial reparations is mainly, or solely, about money. What if it weren’t? What if the demands of reparations advocates were taken seriously, in all their variety and complexity? Charles Henry, author of Long Overdue, recounts some key reparations struggles and suggests ways of achieving reparative justice.
The Canadian radio show Q talks to Julia Mickenberg about the radical children’s stories in Tales for Little Rebels.
New Hampshire’s WFCR-FM talks to Austin Sarat, co-editor of When Law Fails: Making Sense of Miscarriages of Justice.
