Native Land Pod

Native Land Pod

In the spirit of the last stanza of the Black National Anthem, we rise from the past, rooted deeply in the soil of ancestral struggles, to build a home, to claim our space. On Native Land Pod, Angela Rye, Tiffany Cross, and Andrew Gillum guide us through the political landscape, wielding insights and unapologetic analysis, unraveling the threads that connect Black Americans and marginalized communities to a place they courageously call home. In each episode, Angela, Tiffany and Andrew embark on a journey of reflection, taking stock of the news of the week and the country's road to the polls. Join us each week as we navigate the dance between past and present, weaving a narrative of hope, empowerment, and the unyielding strength that defines the journey to reclaim 'Native Land.' This isn't just news analysis; it's a movement, a conversation, and a testament to the power of those who dare to rebuild and redefine the meaning of home.

WHAT A WEEK y’all, we got lots to unpack. 

 

Today hosts Angela Rye, Andrew Gillum, and Tiffany Cross have a candid conversation about the recent political violence at a Trump rally, the imminent threat of another Trump presidency, and debate what Democrats can do to turn the tide. 

 

We know you watched the debate and we know you’ve heard all the facts about the assassination attempt. Now we’re asking— how do we deal?? We are ment...

NLP Fam: Meet us in our Frantz Fanon because it’s giving a major philosophical pod! Some of us may be experiencing a heat wave this week, but today’s conversation about the shallow end and the deep end is only metaphorically related to a pool: Is it safer, in life and in relationships with others, to go deep or to stay shallow?

In this week’s MiniPod, hosts Angela Rye, Tiffany Cross, and Andrew Gillum unpack the many sides of that ...

In a disturbing recent trend, multiple promising legal efforts and programs that addressed longstanding systems of inequality have been shut down and challenged.

 

Last month, the U.S. Court of Appeals blocked Fearless Fund from awarding grants to historically underfunded women of color-led businesses. In Evanston, Illinois, the historic municipal reparations program is now being challenged in court. And the Oklahoma Supreme Court ...

It’s been an eventful week, y’all! 

 

IMMUNE. That’s what the Supreme Court said is the case for any “official” act taken by a sitting US President. Boy are they tearing this country up. 

 

To quote the dissenting opinion written by Justice Sotomayor, “Orders the Navy's Seal Team 6 to assassinate a political rival? Immune. Organizes a military coup to hold onto power? Immune. Takes a bribe in exchange for a pardon? Immune. Immune, ...

On this week’s MiniPod hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum warm up the grill ahead of the July 4th holiday to discuss who–and what–is invited to the cookout. 

What are you bringing with your plastic wrapped casserole dish? Better not be a store-bought baked good. And will liquor make or ruin the party?

This week hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum take a look at the democratic primary race between progressive Jamaal Bowman and moderate George Latimer. The race was the most expensive House primary race in US history for ad buys…but it’s more than just AIPAC money that impacted the outcome. Angela challenges the divide between Democrats and the group has some analysis that the mainstream missed.

On this week’s MiniPod hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum try to have a conversation about who Trump will pick for Vice President… They end up nerding out with esteemed brother, writer, and attorney Elie Mystal about the 12th amendment. 

 

Yet again, a little known legal rule could have a huge impact on the outcome of the election, and the future of the country.

This week hosts Tiffany Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum share the results of our NLP Election Poll. Y’all responded in FORCE! 336 people took part in our poll, which is more than some national polls. Thank  you, NLP Fam!! Our poll shows slightly different results on the attitudes of Black voters, maybe because we actually polled Black people…

We all have had stories about Black fathers—some of them remarkably negative from absenteeism to battles with child support and numerous “baby mamas.” On this week’s MiniPod, however, cohost Andrew Gillum, wants to challenge the narrative with facts. According to the CDC, Black fathers are more likely to be involved in activities with their children compared to white and Hispanic fathers AND ANDREW IS ONE OF THEM!  Angela Rye and T...

Hunter Biden was found guilty for marking on an application that he was neither an addict nor a drug abuser on an application for a firearm he owned briefly. He’s facing a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. The case calls into question the “wisdom” of our current Attorney General and puts a spotlight on an issue too many of us are familiar with: the criminalization of addiction.

On this week’s MiniPod, hosts Angela Rye, Andrew Gillum and Tiffany Cross continue their discussion of Trump’s privileged treatment by the justice system. Certainly OUR justice system is much less forgiving. So should the system work for everyone like it works for Trump??

 

And they have some words of caution for Democrats celebrating Trump’s conviction by gleefully labeling him a “felon.”

Should Biden issue a pardon to Donald Trump for his federal crimes? Will that help with America’s standing or do we have 99 OTHER problems and Trump ain’t one?! There have been some Republicans and Democrats calling for a preemptive Trump pardon. Is this kind of grace-giving exactly what’s wrong with the Democratic Party?  

 

Also, can Trump vote now that he’s been convicted? In Florida, where Trump lives, folks with felonies have ...

With an eye towards history and pop culture, the hosts look at why some folks choose to use this word—and use it, and use it, and use it—while others think that not even Black folks should say it. Along with funny stories about their personal relationships with this powerful word, we’ll hear about how the NAACP...
