Drama at Lunchtime: Bronzeville – a fiction podcast: S1 E2

13/08/2019

Some scripted podcasts use a lush production design to approximate a particular time and place. But with a country-spanning story of business, crime and love, “Bronzeville” has the added, lived-in feel of history that many other shows strive for. Between the writing and a bevy of talented actors (Laurence Fishburne, Wood Harris, Tika Sumpter, Lance Reddick and Larenz Tate, just to name a few), the ongoing, state-hopping narrative taps into the specific language of rhythms of running an underground, off-the-books lottery. Add in some evocative narration and “Bronzeville” really feels tied to the theatrical spirit of a vintage radio drama

With Everett Copeland in prison, his brother Jesse struggles to keep the gangs running smoothly, with some help from Curtis Randolph.
