C'Mon Son! The Podcast Series 6 Episode #68: The Central Park Five - Raymond Santana

Famed director Ava DuVernay recently announced via social media that she's casting for her latest directorial project on Netflix about the "Central Park Five," one of the first cases to use meticulous DNA testing that led to the exoneration of five wrongfully accused teenagers. The five-part series will focus on each of the Harlem teens at the center of the story: Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise. Ed Lover sat in-studio with Raymond Santana as he tells his side of the incident, his view of the justice system today, being coerced by the police as a young teen and if his payout from the city of New York compensated for what he went through after five years behind bars for a crime he didn't commit. Enjoy this week's episode of "C'Mon Son!" The Podcast, featuring Raymond Santana from The Central Park Five. “In their journey, we witness five innocent young men of color who were met with injustice at every turn — from coerced confessions to unjust incarceration to public calls for their execution by the man who would go on to be the president of the United States.” - Ava DuVernay

C'Mon Son! The Podcast Episode #82: Shifts In Hip-Hop

Three very valid points were discovered this week during the recording of Ed's podcast:- BIG REALITY: we need music programs back in schools. - SOLID FACT: Shifts in hip-hop are inevitable. - THE FUTURE: The next generation/shift in hip-hop could be negatively influenced due to the lack of music-driven programs (and the history of instrumentation/music) in our schools. Listen and tell us if you agree/disagree.
