Throughout the first season of Call & Response, our guests discussed the shows, podcasts, and projects they were working on AND talked about the content they currently consuming and excited about. The staff at FOD has compiled these excellent recommendations below.
In the wake of heightened awareness of racial inequality, many of us are seeking out content that showcases diverse. In the midst of this civil unrest, Funny Or Die partnered with Blavity Inc. and created Call & Response: a show hosted by Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle dedicated to interviewing Black creators — activists, comedians, musicians, actors, visual artists, and more — about current events, discuss the present momentum, and speak about their work and struggles.
