Enjoy it

I can honestly say that I don’t know what I was expecting to hear when I saw this podcast. Maybe some Freaknik stories. I can say thank you though. Thank you for taking us on a history lesson of not just Freaknik, but of the city of Atlanta and it’s relationship w Freaknik. I throughly enjoyed listening to this podcast. It did remind me of time in my life where I wanted to attend Freaknik, but never got the opportunity to go. Thank you again!!

Great history lesson!

Enjoyed it a ton! I always listened to it on my way to the barbershop. Dunno why....just felt like the appropriate black hang out setting to listen to some black entertainment history on the way to. I enjoyed the fact that this went deeper than Freaknik and connected the story of Atlanta into it. I never knew about the kidnappings of the 80s, or the fact that all the mayors have been black, or the purpose of the MARTA keeping blacks out the suburbs. Never knew any, so I learned alot here. Lastly, I gotta shout out the great background music that was played during segment transitions and commercials. I even tried to Shazam them, but had no success lol. What's good with releasing the track and artist names?!
