I created this post to put a collection of podcast that have covered and are currently covering the information on Michael Brown, Ferguson, and police brutality in general. I thought it was important to share this information and get different perspectives of what is “real people” are saying about Ferguson and not what you see or hear on large news media outlets. Please listen and support these outlets by sharing this post, listening to their podcast, and supporting their movement.
