In a special episode of DITD, we have our first guest host joining! Dr. Joshua Wright is a professor at Trinity Washington University in Washington, DC, a graduate of Howard University; host of "Woke History", a new podcast series on NPR One and a two-time author.

He joins us to talk about Black Celebrity in the US, Kanye's unique status as "the ultimate contrarian" and where he stands after the month of craziness.

If you haven't spun Episode 186, we encourage you to do so as we broach on those topics once more here. Also, Dr. Wright mentions The Journal of Hip-Hop Studies, I have linked his issue on Kanye & Christianity here, we highly recommend you dive into some true Hip-Hop academia.
