Albert "Prodigy" Johnson of Mobb Deep passed away from his lifelong battle with Sickle Cell Anemia Blood Disorder last year and this six-part pocast series from WNYC Studios delves into how he got into the music industry, his talent, his fight for his health and the people that loved him that supported him professionally as well as keeping him well.

Throughout the podcast, you hear from Prodigy as well as his brother, former doctors, Big Twins and Roxanne Shante. Through his sicknes, this disease also shaped how he lived, his thoughts on life and eventually it left him to rap and times he battled the disease in order to perform.

Although he was in and out of the hospital to manage the disorder, Prodigy continued to tour in the last decade of his life despite feeling his bones were breaking and that he was on fire. The show takes you on his tours and shows how he navigated hip hop and had a series of people in his life that supported him in living his dream up to his last performance which would eventually begin his final hospital stay in Las Vegas.

Slow Burn looks at what it was like going through political scandals. Last season, they focused on Watergate and the fall of Nixon from the infamous tapes to those that you may not have been familiar with the scandal who lent their voices to highlighting it.

This season, they focus on the Impeachment of Bill Clinton which includes a number of the -gate scandals and and of course Monica Lewinsky and the perfect storm that converged to bring all of these activities to light. The show covers the concern of Clinton's infidelities leading to his run for president, various women that were already known as well as how Linda Tripp cornered her "friend" Monica into talking with the FBI when she thought she was just meeting her for lunch.

We go behind the scenes with a number of people who worked with the Clintons as well as those who were on he investigation share their stories (even though Monica herself declined interviews for the podcast). Through the 8 episodes, listeners will revisit the events and see how it was framed.

ALTERED CARBON
Netflix Original

Altered Carbon takes us 350 years into the future in this science fiction series created by Laeta Kalogridis that is based on a novel of the same name by English author Richard K. Morgan.

Set in the year 2384, people's memories have been decanted into "cortical stacks", storage devices of alien design which have
been reverse engineered, duplicated en masse, and surgically inserted into the vertebrae at the back of the neck. Physical bodies, called "sleeves", are disposable vessels that can accept any "stack". We meet Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), a political operative with mercenary skills (the
sole soldier survivor of those defeated in an uprising against the new world order 250 years prior) who wakes up 250 years after the termination of his previous sleeve. He is given the choice to either spend the rest of time in prison for his crimes, or to help solve the murder of Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), one of the wealthiest men of the settled worlds.
