The Field Negro Guide to Arts and Culture w/ Vernon Reid and W. Kamau Bell
Episode 27 - The Life & Times of Vernon Reid vol. 1

We've had a little bit of an unplanned break but are back on this Black Friday with a super-sized episode to listen to while you're standing in line at the mall all weekend. The illustrious Mr. Bell is still a little tied up with a number of projects, so 'Field Negro Prime' Alex Thornton is keeping his seat warm while we catch up on Vernon's recent health issues.

This episode started as an attempt to interview Vernon about his past and learn a little about how he became the International Man of Mystery we know and love today. As you might expect, we didn't manage to get too far into the story before getting sidetracked on a number of other topics, but we've at least started to scratch the surface and plan on revisiting the topic again at a later date. In the meantime, drop by and let us know what you'd like to know about Vernon (or Kamau for that matter) for the next time around. We can't promise you'll get all the dirt, but you'll definitely get something.

Or, you can just talk to us directly in the usual spots:
