Saved By DNA: Yusef Salaam Of The Central Park Five Speaks Out

Another week, another (sort of) political podcast

Welcome to “The Stakes,” MTV’s political-ish podcast that winces at any mention of the election but is glued to political Twitter anyways. Y’all sure do love your chain restaurants! Coming up on the show:

Part 1: MTV Founders editor Julie Zeilinger speaks with Ansley Calandra, whose story of a run-in with Trump surrogate Omarosa before the second presidential debate went viral. Calandra discusses what it’s like being a survivor — and a meme — during this election.

Part 2: Jamil Smith sits down with Yusef Salaam, who was 14 years old when he was charged with the rape of a jogger in Central Park and became known as one of the Central Park Five.

Part 3: Just in time for Halloween, we’re sharing an interview from a sister podcast of ours here at MTV called “Skillset.” MTV film critic Amy Nicholson chats with Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabes — the book that became Mean Girls.

Thanks for being with us on this journey, internet. You can subscribe to our show and other fine MTV Podcasts productions on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and Spotify.
