Must Listen

This was a surprise find since everything in my feed is sci-fi / horror. But so glad it popped up. The season’s go by quickly so it’s not a huge time commitment if you want to binge.

Mood, music, & intrigue!

This show does something special, between the way it transports you to a different time, with music & mood as your guide, & constantly ratcheting up the intrigue along the way! The acting is out of this world & the sound design completely immerses you in the world. Listen now!

Harlem Queen -- No Longer Hidden!

Ever since I first saw Cicely Tyson birth Madame St Claire in "Hoodlum," I knew she belonged in the same conversations with Madame CJ Walker, Zora Neale Hurstons and other kick-ass Black women of that time. The strong writing, the immersive acting, THIS is the story I've been waiting for!
