Calling In A Favour

  • Christina Lee
  • Julian Brimmers


Take that, rewind it back — dublab got the heat to make your booty go *clap*.

Welcome back to a peachy episode of Calling in a Favour, dedicated to the (t)rap evolution of Atlanta. This time, Julian is joined by journalist, podcaster and all-round expert on the sounds of the Souf, Christina Lee.

Christina has been contributing to outlets such as Pitchfork, Washington Post, Guardian, NPR Music, The Creative Independent, and many more. She’s also one half of the Bottom of the Map podcast, and the author and narrator of Racket, a podcast about the insane history of the Gold Club strip club. Killer Mike says Christina is a genius, and who are we to disagree with Mike.

Here, Christina and Julian discuss her early writing days in Atlanta, the switch from writing to podcasting, Childish Gambino vs Donald Glover, strip club culture, and much more. Yeah.
