2: The Protest, The People, and The Pandemic.


In this episode you'll hear the stories of New Yorkers who are documenting the protests that have sparked up all around the city following the murder of George Floyd. Our host Branden Janese focuses on the presence of white allies at protests and in the media, the emotional journey of black creatives during these rebellions, and the nationwide grief we all share during this heavy time in our history. The idea of adding a revolt to a pandemic, seems like a recipe for disaster. But here we are, marching, shouting, and changing our world — one protest at a time. Sick Empire is a proud addition to the army of frontline fighters, soldiering peacefully for justice and liberation. New episodes every Monday until July 20th
