Ídolo: The Ballad of Chalino Sánchez

(English, Español) Imagine if Frank Sinatra went on stage every night with a gun in his waistband. Or if Tupac got into a shootout on stage at a rodeo. Well, Chalino Sánchez did just that. In this podcast, we examine the extraordinary life of the “King of Corridos,” and attempt to unravel the mystery of his death. Chalino’s story, his own narcocorrido, is the ultimate ride through the drug cartel world, the underbelly of the Mexican-American music industry and a murder mystery for the ages. 

Imagínate que Juan Gabriel se subiera al escenario cada noche con una pistola en la cintura. O que Babo, el del Cartel de Santa, se agarrara a plomazos sobre el escenario con alguien del público. Ese era Chalino Sánchez. En este podcast examinamos la extraordinaria vida del "Rey de los Corridos", e intentamos resolver el misterio de su muerte. La historia de Chalino, su propio narcocorrido, es un viaje a través del mundo de los cárteles de droga, el mundo de la industria musical Mexicano-Americana y un asesinato sin resolver para la posteridad. 

Hosted by Erick Galindo in English. Conducido por Alejandro Mendoza en español.

The Trojan Horse Affair

A strange letter appears on a city councillor’s desk in Birmingham, England, laying out an elaborate plot by Islamic extremists to infiltrate the city’s schools. The plot has a code name: Operation Trojan Horse. The story soon explodes in the news and kicks off a national panic. By the time it all dies down, the government has launched multiple investigations, beefed up the country’s counterterrorism policy, revamped schools and banned people from education for the rest of their lives. To Hamza Syed, who is watching the scandal unfold in his city, the whole thing seemed … off. Because through all the official inquiries and heated speeches in Parliament, no one has ever bothered to answer a basic question: Who wrote the letter? And why? The night before Hamza is to start journalism school, he has a chance meeting in Birmingham with the reporter Brian Reed, the host of the hit podcast S-Town. Together they team up to investigate: Who wrote the Trojan Horse letter? They quickly discover that it’s a question people in power do not want them asking. From Serial Productions and The New York Times comes The Trojan Horse Affair: a mystery in eight parts. Read More

Imperfect Paradise – LAist Studios

Imperfect Paradise is a longform narrative podcast showcasing California stories with universal significance. Each story takes on something essential about California -- its progressiveness, its reputation as a home for dreamers and schemers, its heartbreaking inequality, its varied and diverse communities, its unique combination of dense cities and wild places -- and each season breaks it down into multiple 20-40 minute episodes that will be released sequentially. Season 1 sheds light on divisive housing issues in Orange County. Season 2 investigates the death of Chicano activist Oscar Gomez. Season 3 unravels the controversy surrounding LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva. Season 4 asks how Katie from rural Maryland became Guru Jagat of Venice—and how a former yoga and wellness star fell down the far-right rabbit hole.The stories will be reported by the KPCC/LAist newsroom and contributors (journalists, storytellers) from around the state. Support for this podcast is made possible by Gordon and Dona Crawford, who believe that quality journalism makes Los Angeles a better place to live. This program is made possible in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people. Read More

Kasich & Klepper

They come from two different sides of the political spectrum: John Kasich, former Governor of Ohio and 2016 Republican presidential candidate; and Jordan Klepper, a liberal comedian best known for his viral videos interviewing MAGA supporters for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. In this weekly talk show podcast, the pair will come together to scream their differing political opinions at each other for an hour… just kidding. Sure, there will be some political debate, but Kasich & Klepper’s discussions will more often explore the common ground of their shared interests. They’ll dive into conversations about parenting, leadership, pop culture, mental health, and more — all with a good sense of humor and a whole lot of jokes at each other’s expense. Along the way, Kasich & Klepper will be joined by high-profile guests from all walks of life — musicians, athletes, activists, politicians, and much more — each of whom will share their unique perspectives on modern life’s biggest questions. Together, Kasich & Klepper will have thoughtful, engaging, and downright hilarious conversations to demonstrate the power of mutual understanding in a polarized world.
