Featured Podcast – Slow Burn Season 3 by Slate

I didn’t listen to the first two seasons of Slow Burn (although they sound fascinating), but this new season caught my eye and I’ve been hooked! The story centers on Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG, two of music’s biggest stars, and they intertwined tale of music, violence, and, ultimately, their unsolved murders. Loving this podcast!
