There are numerous podcast shows that either focus on history, current events, or Hip Hop. However, there is not a podcast show that combines all 3 of these topics. There are many people who love books and music as a hobby, but have no outlet to enjoy them simultaneously.
The twist to “Books, Beats, & Beyond” is that the host will interview authors of books that focus on history that has been neglected in our education system. For example, the history of African Americans pre and post slavery, Native American history, and Immigrants and Workers’ Rights history, etc. Also, the show will interview and play “underground” Hip Hop. This will expose the listeners to music, artists, and authors that they wouldn’t normally hear in the mainstream media.
