Society And Culture Podcasts
Abstract Factory is a podcast about technology, creativity, and society and the space where the three combine—and sometimes conflict. What happens to identity, community, and self-expression when the internet becomes our world? Hosts @markwunsch and @ckolderup try to untangle what's happening in the hearts and minds of those who spend their lives in front of screens all day.

It’s the 80’s... Hip-hop is beginning to emerge. Cocaine, is already everywhere. And crack is about to make a dramatic appearance into ghetto life. This unprecedented consumption will make some dealers into the new kings of the streets, and also new role models for their community. The Undersiders will tell you the story of 8 of them. True and crude. Tales about millionaire drug dealers who at one point directly impacted on the development of hip-hop. Dr Dre, Tupac, Lil Wayne and many more… would these pop culture icons have had the same career if certain of their paths hadn’t meet? Without being judgmental, without glorification, the Undersiders will guide you down into hip-hop’s turbulent underground and follow its rising up as a worldwide culture.
Les années 80. Le hip hop commence à voir le jour. La cocaïne, elle, est déjà partout. Et bientôt, le crack va faire une entrée fracassante dans la vie des ghettos. Cette consommation sans précédent va permettre à quelques dealers de devenir les nouveaux rois de la rue et de représenter d’autres modèles pour leur communauté. The Undersiders va vous raconter le destin de 8 d’entre eux. Des histoires vraies, crues. Des histoires de millionnaires de la drogue qui ont eu un jour un impact direct sur l’évolution du Hip-Hop. Dr Dre, Tupac, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne et bien d’autres… Toutes ces icônes de la pop culture auraient-elles eu la même carrière si certaines trajectoires ne s’étaient pas croisées ? Sans juger, ni glorifier, The Undersiders vous plonge dans les dessous agités du Hip Hop et de son ascension en tant que culture mondiale. --- Créé par François Cusset @francoiscusset Produit par Engle @anotherengle Voix française: Jeremy Covillault Production son: THE Musique originale: Max Zippel
