We’re bringing you something special this week. We’re introducing a new podcast produced by Radiotopia and PRX, called Oprahdemics – which tries to understand Oprah Winfrey’s impact on our culture.
On Oprahdemics… historians, best friends, and Oprah obsessives Kellie Carter Jackson and Leah Wright Rigueur are going through their picks for the most iconic episodes from the decades-long run of the Oprah Winfrey Show… from diet fads to wars with the meat industry, and much more.
We’re going to take you back to 4pm on a May day in 1992, when Oprah moved her show to Los Angeles to tackle the ongoing fallout of the Rodney King verdict. A confrontation between two white women in the audience leads to one of the most explosive Oprah episodes of all time.
