    ‘They’re Playing Games’: An Exclusive Interview with VP Kamala Harris

    ‘They’re Playing Games’: An Exclusive Interview with VP Kamala Harris

    Last Friday, Vice President Kamala Harris agreed to a sit down interview with VICE News chief political correspondent Liz Landers. 
    But the day before they met, Republican Govs. Greg Abbott of Texas and Ron DeSantis of Florida sent a busload of migrants to VP Harris’ house and Martha’s Vineyard. ‘There were children, people being put on a bus or a plane who don't know where they're going or where they were being sent,’ said Harris. This week, VP Harris responds to the Republicans latest ‘political stunt’ and gives insight into what the Democrats are strategizing for in the upcoming election. 
    This episode was produced by Steph Brown and Julia Nutter. Special thanks to Liz Landers, Simone Perez and Sebastian Walker.

    Undercover in Guyana

    Undercover in Guyana

    Last year, VICE News Correspondent Isobel Yeung went undercover to understand how international business deals were being brokered in Guyana. 
    This small country in South America has one of the fastest growing economies in the world right now. Newly discovered natural resources have attracted a lot of foreign investment from China and the U.S., placing Guyana in the middle of a tug-of war for soft power in the region. 
    Recently, infrastructure contracts -  roads, bridges, and a hydroelectric power plant - have been awarded to Chinese companies. 
    In this episode of VICE News Reports, Yeung digs into how business is done in Guyana and uncovers allegations of corruption that reach far into the country’s highest levels. 
    This episode was produced by Steph Brown and edited by Ashley Cleek and Stephanie Kariuki.  Special thanks to Belle Cushing, Daniel Vergara, Jika Gonzalez, Craig Thomson and Karishma Vyas.

    Dating In A Warzone

    Dating In A Warzone

    Six months after Russia launched a full-scale invasion on Ukraine, we check in with Katia, a Ukrainian woman who we first spoke with back in February. Like many Ukranians who stayed in the country, Katia has had to find ways to live life in the midst of chaos—which includes dating. Katia tells us about fostering a new relationship in a warzone, and we also check in with VICE News Correspondent Ben C. Solomon about how life and war in Ukraine have been developing.

    The Rise of the Moors: ‘We Want Our Own Nation’

    The Rise of the Moors: ‘We Want Our Own Nation’

    Moors in America believe that they – and many Black Americans – are descendents of the Moroccan Empire, which they claim once extended all the way from North Africa to North America. This would make Moors indigenous to an America that far predates the United States.
    But beyond that shared credence, the movement is scattered. Some seek only to practice spiritual beliefs while others maintain that being a Moor means U.S. laws do not apply to them. A few even use their identity as Moors to justify violence, theft, and fraud. Vice News’ correspondent Alzo Slade takes us inside the different facets of the Moorish movement, to try and understand the alternate history they believe in, and why the current social and political landscape is making Moorish nationalism more appealing.
    This episode was produced by Jen Kinney and Sam Greenspan. Special thanks to Alzo Slade and Amanda Pisetzner

    Roe Was Never Enough

    Roe Was Never Enough

    After Roe v. Wade was overturned, many wondered what living in a post-Roe America would look like. But for a lot of Native people, Roe has never been a reality. Though the federal government is obligated to provide tribes with healthcare, decades-old restrictions on federal funding have severely limited the provision of abortion. 
    Organizations like Indigenous Women Rising have been advocating for reproductive rights and abortion in Native communities for years. VICE News Reports’ Adreanna Rodriguez takes a dive deep into how IWR is filling the gap left by the government’s long history of manipulating Native people's reproductive well being… and how Native people have specific needs when it comes to reproductive justice. Needs that are deeply holistic and embedded in their cultural history.
    This episode was reported and produced by Adreanna Rodriguez in partnership with Type Investigations, where Adreanna is an Ida B. Wells Fellow. It was edited by Adizah Eghan, Noy Thrupkaew, Cassi Feldman, and Stephanie Kariuki, with research assistance from Paco Alvarez.

    A Summer of Love

    A Summer of Love

    After a bad breakup, our producer Steph Brown was on a mission to reflect, recover and get back out there. And what better time to jump into the dating pool than right now? After all, we all have been conditioned to believe in the romantic power of summer.
    But there is a new problem that summer is facing. Doom and gloom is surrounding us… so how exactly do you date when everything feels like it's on fire? 
    This week, Steph Brown follows VICE host Taji Ameen as he tries to date in a changing world. Together they try something different to grapple with how we fall in love today.
    This episode was reported and produced by Steph Brown and edited by Stephanie Kariuki. Special thanks Taji Ameen and to everyone who sent in a voice memo.

Amazing

I use to hate watching and listening to the news. It was always either death or scandal. However, when I stumbled onto VICE via Bill Maher, I was hooked. I love that it’s REAL news. It’s international news, fun stories, stories about animals, and even personal stories! I love everything about VICE. I have learned more about our world and everyone in it, because of this News Podcast. I look forward to listening every week. Keep doing what you are doing VICE! We appreciate you!

Excellence in journalism

Grounded, deep dives into both global and domestic stories. I deeply appreciate Vice’s dedication to revisiting stories with contextual updates. Specifically, their coverage of the modern American conspiracy movement is phenomenal. As a 20 something, Vice keeps me coming back everyday to stay connected. Thank you Vice for all you do!
