Colorado Public Radio has released a new podcast that takes an innovative look at people working to reform policing from inside and outside the system.
Called “Systemic,” it is hosted and reported by CPR podcast producer Jo Erickson.
“I wanted this series to reflect the struggles of a group of people who have put everything on the line to make real changes to policing,” Erickson said in a news release. “When it comes to storytelling, I believe it’s important to know who tells the story, as much as what the story is about. So I handed the mic to police officers and activists within the African American community so that they could tell their unfiltered stories on the frontlines of this conflict of race and police culture.”
Produced in the wake of George Floyd’s death and 2020’s racial justice protests, “Systemic” follows Black Americans working in Colorado, Minneapolis and around the country to create change at an extraordinary time, states a news release. Listeners will hear from activists, civil rights attorneys, lawmakers, the families of victims of police violence and several Black officers working to change policing from within the system.
Episodes of “Systemic” began on May 19 and are available every Wednesday. “Systemic” can be accessed through the CPR website: www.cpr.org/podcast/systemic.
