Now available on a podcatcher near you, the Dungeons ‘n’ Durags podcast—part of the Ebony Covering Black America Podcast Network—is a story-driven, narrative-style show in the vein of podcasts like Radiolab, 99% Invisible, and Reply All. “Dungeons ‘n’ Durags” author Ron Dawson co-hosts this funny and provocative show about pop culture, politics, faith, and following Ron’s journey into blackness. It’s hilarious and heart-warming, and a must-listen. Join the DnD email list to stay updated on new developments with the show.

Show description

Ron has lived his entire adult life as a black man in a white world. In 2016 he had both a crisis of his Christian faith as well as a racial identity crisis (you can guess why). Since then he’s been on a journey to reconnect with his blackness in a way he never has before.  Joining him will be his Black BFFs and the “Bow & Dre” to his “Junior,” JD and Yolanda T. Cochran. Every other week they’ll discuss issues of race and religion, politics and pop culture. Shade will be thrown. Jokes will be made. And provocative conversations will be had. He’s just one nerdy Oreo tryna become a double-fudge brownie y’all. So go easy on a brutha.
