For this episode we welcome the immanently estimable and multi-talented Dr. Miles White. Dr. White is both an accomplished jazz artist and a scholar of music and music culture. We use his exceptional book From Jim Crow to Jay-Z: Race, Rap, and the Performance of Masculinity (Univ. of Illinois Press) to dig into hip-hop culture, its politics, and evolution over the past several decades. It is a true honor to have such an authority on these matters grace our humble caverns with his presence. Whether you're a hip-hop devotee or not, I think you'll really enjoy hearing the insight Dr. White brings to the conversation.

Serial is a podcast from Serial Productions, a New York Times company, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.
