Tiffany D. Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum Set to Host New Political Podcast Series


January 6, 2024

There’s a new podcast in the works!

Tiffany D. Cross, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum are launching a new political podcast series just in time for the upcoming 2024 presidential election. Native Land Pod will be the flagship show in iHeartMedia’s new political podcast network Reasoned Choice Media, which is launching later this year. It will amplify diverse voices, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The hosts are experts in the field as Gillum is a former politician and mayor of Tallahassee, Florida, Cross is a TV personality, political analyst, and author, and Rye is a TV host, social justice advocate, lawyer, and commentator. In each episode, the trio will address that week’s news through an “unfiltered and unflinching lens,” THR explains. The founders of Reasoned Choice Media, a joint effort with iHeartMedia, include Rye, Charlamagne Tha God, and Chris Morrow, CEO of Loud Speakers Podcast Network.


“As we head into an election year, we’re excited to see how Native Land Pod elevates the political discourse and empowers listeners with new knowledge and diverse perspectives,” Will Pearson, president of iHeartPodcasts, said in the announcement.

Rye added, “Launching Native Land Pod before one of the most consequential elections in our lifetime is our mandate. Being able to co-host along with friends who have become family to talk about political and social issues from our perspective is an honor.”


Cross continued, “The cable news industry has stubbornly refused to speak to the rising majority of America. That’s where we come in. … We are your relatable political group chat where news is digestible and speaks directly to you.”

Gillum explained, “I’m excited to join Angela and Tiffany for some much-needed tough talk about our politics, our people, and our collective work to reshape the way political conversations are had that ultimately inspires listeners to do the work that leads to our greater freedom and political liberation. Listeners can [find] a home where their lived experiences are reflected and where their ideas are validated.”

The podcast series will launch on Jan. 11, and new episodes will be released every Thursday. Listen to the trailer here.
