Le Soapbox is a podcast dedicated to informing young people, and particularly young black people, on subjects that affect us everyday. The phrase, “getting on your soapbox” is used for those who are sharing their views unabashedly on a given subject at a given time. Each week, while weaving in soundbites and clips from some of the greatest black minds we have ever heard, Baudelaire hops on his soapbox to dive into one topic or person specifically, to share some things you probably didn’t know while sharing some of his own views as well.
