This is a demo, a rough draft, a sample.
Monday nights in The Greene Space we swap studio postproduction for real-time ruckus with tapings of your favorite podcasts, sneaky peeks of unreleased pilots and works-in-progress, conversations with the people who make great tape, and audio experiments of all kinds. Take the earbuds out, grab a drink, and get live with your fellow listeners.

Join us for a live taping of The Stoop, the award-winning podcast that tells stories from across the Black diaspora.

Drawing from their varied life experiences, they dig into the stuff Black people talk about, but not enough. Using journalism, storytelling and the funkiest music around, they explore questions like: Why's it so hard for some Black folk to say, "I love you"? Why'd my Mama really make me stay out of the sun? I'm African, but am I Black? And, what's a hotep anyway?
