Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame: The “Real” Ferguson
In their first episode in a series to discover what exactly happened in Ferguson during the first hundred days following the shooting of Michael Brown, the Moral Courage Project Team immerses themselves in the community to find the “real” Ferguson. What they find might surprise even the most engaged: farmer’s markets, wine bars, movie theatres, diversity, quiet.

“This is an excellent subject and wonderful way to expose the reality of issues in our country. The show has excellent production value and narration. It is also balanced and presents a well rounded view of the area and circumstances.”
“It’s interesting to hear how Tony Rice was vocally nervous during set up but held such strong conviction about his opinions during the taping. It seems like a documentary-style show that allows the people in the region to tell their own story, which is beautiful. We need more of this. Definitely would be interested in the Footnotes.”
-Here For It
“This is a beautifully crafted podcast where residents share their own perspective about living in Ferguson before and after the shooting of Michael Brown. It is compelling to hear the different experiences about living in the same place. I’m enjoying it and look forward to continuing.”

Here For It: Are You My Man?
“If you’re looking for frank and fun conversation about LGBT issues, sex, and race this podcast is a great place to start! The hosts speak with great knowledge and conviction on the topics and do an excellent job keeping it serious when they needs to, and funny when the moment arises. These guys don’t hold back, and it’s absolutely a delight.”
-Your Fave Is Problematic
“First off, a disclosure: I am a straight white man interested in learning more about LGBTQ issues and how I can better support the community. The hosts obviously have a great rapport, and they do a great job of keeping the discussion fun while tackling some more serious issues, including being LGBTQ in Trump’s America, and how interracial couples of all types are viewed differently in different cultures. The inconsistent audio levels made it a little difficult to listen in a noisy place like the train, and the conversation sometimes jumped around a bit too quickly, but I learned a lot from the episode I heard and I look forward to learning more.”
-Trends In Low Places
“It is great to find a show highlighting LGBT health and wellness issues and stories. The two hosts are a dynamic pair and do not pull their punches as they treat you to lively commentary on recent events. Be warned before you enjoy: their playful banter uses the full spectrum of language.”
