Join bloggers Kid Fury and Crissle for their weekly podcast covering hip-hop and pop culture's most trying stars. Throwing shade and spilling tea with a flippant and humorous attitude, no star is safe from Fury and Crissle unless their name is Beyoncé. (Or Blue Ivy.)

As transplants to New York City (Kid Fury from Miami and Crissle from Oklahoma City), The Read also serves as an on-air therapy session for two friends trying to adjust to life (and rats) in the big city.

The Read is part of the LoudSpeakers Network and is published every week on iTunes, iHeart Radio Talk, Soundcloud & Stitcher.

I found a GREAT podcast.

I listen to a lot of podcasts and try to give a most new ones a chance. THIS ONE I LIKE from the very first minutes. I'm a 50 y.o. straight white dude who doesn't listen to hiphop/rap, but I found the hosts engaging, intelligent, opinionated, and have a clicking chemistry. They do not hesitate to be critical but not in a nasty way. Also, they seem to have a great, accurate overview of the entertainment biz. GIVE THEM A LISTEN, you won't be sorry !

Every drop is like Christmas Morning

Kid Fury and Crissle are like Christmas morning and I look forward to the episode dropping every week. I’ve listened for 5 years now and it somehow never seems to get old listening to them recount the absurdities of pop culture. If you enjoy pop culture, are pro-mental health, and need a laugh, you must tune in.

FUNdamental READing

I am grateful that these two hosts were able to take care of themselves and continue their banter because I was missing them badly! This podcast is like listening in on a friend’s conversation and you feel apart of it and heard. This is possibly my favorite podcast ever. Thank you Crissle and Kid Fury for being your beautiful selves.
