Mogul Podcast

Mogul, the latest Podcast from Gimlet Media and Loud Speakers Network, chronicles "the life and death of Chris Lighty", who was one of the world's most prominent hip-hop execs before he took his life in 2012. It's a six-part narrative that's a combination of the biographical/investigative elements of S-Town and Missing Richard Simmons with the musical elements of Song Exploder, while also offering a really important exploration of Black masculinity and mental health. My only complaint? I want more. Check out the first episode below.
