This episode contains expletives.

April 29 marked the 25th anniversary of the riots in Los Angeles that followed the acquittal of the four LAPD officers accused of beating Rodney King. Host James Peterson and podcast producer Jeanette Woods discuss how five new TV documentaries and a one-man show restaged for Netflix are bringing the event to a new generation.

We also get a little gloomy about how the narrative of police violence against unarmed black men looks pretty much the same as it did back then. 

You can find Eric Deggans' review of the television programs discussed on The Remix at NPR.org. CNN has a comprehensive timeline of the riots at CNN.com.
