Drama at Lunchtime: Bronzeville – a fiction podcast: S1 E9

21/08/2019

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

Furious with her family, Lisa leaves Bronzeville and goes to St. Louis, where she meets up with Frank Barnes. Back on the South Side, the Copeland organization is unraveling.
