About The Boondocks Podcast
Until July 2020, I (Dean – the producer) had never seen The Boondocks. I’d asked my wife, Tiara, if she’d watched it when it was out originally in 2005 and she’d said that she’d only watched a few episodes. I asked her if she would like to. She said “sure”.
So, being that the Covid-19 pandemic was still going on and we weren’t going anywhere, we logged into our HBOMax account and queued it up. What I saw was one of the most amazing pieces of art ever produced. I was fascinated at the anime style, the hip-hop music, and the political tones (both overt and subversive). I fell in love!
Being a podcaster I set out to find more from my podcast siblings about the show. I searched Google, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, etc…NOTHING!!! How could this be?!
I had to correct this immediately! Problem was…I’m white. I absolutely CANNOT host this show! Not my place at all. So, I put out tweets mentioning about the extreme lack of podcasts about The Boondocks and that my Black podcasting siblings must heed the call and that I would support them in any way possible. No movement. At first I was frustrated, but then I had an idea…I asked Tiara, “If I can find you another Black co-host or two, would you be interested in doing this podcast?” Her one word response: “Definitely!”
So, my friends, please enjoy The Boondocks Podcast!
