Charlamagne tha God has announced that he will be partnering up with iHeartMedia and starting the Black Effect Podcast Network.
He will be leading the charge with his own syndicated radio show “The Breakfast Club.”
The Black Effect Podcast Network will launch this fall and will include 18 podcasts, all selected by Charlamagne. The network is slated to become the largest podcast collective to highlight Black listeners and voices in Black culture.
Other creators include comedian-actress Jess Hilarious, social justice activist Tamika Mallory, and attorney and TV host Eboni K. Williams.
Charlamagne tha God commented on the venture, saying:
“Blackness has an immediate, culture-shifting effect on everything. Blackness controls the cool. Blackness is the culture, but Black Voices are not monolithic. The only way to appreciate the diversity of thought and experiences in Black culture is to build a platform for those voices to be heard.”
