Abolition X is one of Spotfy’s newest Podcast releases that is equal parts informative and engaging.
Hosts Vic Mensa, Indigo Mateo and Richie Reseda discuss how abolition isn’t just about dismantling the prison industrial complex, but that it’s also about imagining a world based on community, accountability and healing.
In every episode, incarcerated people, organizers and artists address how abolition intersects with different aspects of culture — from housing to hip hop — and leave us with a new vision of how we can treat ourselves and each other outside of revenge and punishment.
In addition to regular interviews with current inmates, Abolition X will feature guests that include: filmmaker Dream Hampton, University of Maryland Professor Leigh Goodmark, activist Patrisse Cullors (co-founder of Black Lives Matter), actor/activist Kendrick Sampson, community activist Larry Hoover Jr., activist Dr. Ameena Matthews, rapper Meek Mill, and rapper Bobby Shumrda, among others.
Abolition X is the podcast that brings abolition to the culture.
