Customer Reviews

Great series!

Love the work of Dr. Peterson! He's a brillian scholar and academic and is one of (if not, the only) premier Hip Hop scholar. I love his poignant and timely podcasts which allow us to engage with society today in the so-called "post-racial" America. I await to listen the series each week and enjoy the insight he gives along with his guests. Bravo.

Relevant and provocative

Dr. James Peterson puts his definition of what it means to be a hip hop scholar to work in his always relevant always thought-provoking podcast, The Remix. If you want example of how a gifted and critical mind breaks down popular trends, major media events, and coded messages rooted in the African Diaspora, look no further than this podcast. Dr. Peterson is a consummate podcast host and modern Africana/literature/media scholar. ENJOY!

Binge Listening!

I can’t get enough of these conversations. I recently spent most of 6 hours of a plane ride binge listening to the archives of the Remix and each episode opens up new perspectives on life in America. I have lists of books to read and music to listen to, movies to view and questions to ask myself as I move through the world. Dr. Peterson’s elegant, intimate and joyful approach as he engages his guests on the topics of race, class, money, politics, art, music, culture, Feminism, violence, young people, social icons, history and more, is an education in the most digestible form, without any sacrifice of depth and nuance. I love these podcasts and look forward to more!
