Crooked Media and Audacy are proud to present Mother Country Radicals, a new original podcast telling a family history of the Weather Underground from host Zayd Ayers Dohrn with his parents, radical outlaws Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. The original podcast, premiering June 9 on the Audacy app, offers a highly personal, politically charged account of a counterculture group of young activists in pursuit of radical change through any means necessary, which included bombing the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol, breaking comrades out of prison, and teaming up with Black militant groups to rob banks, all in an attempt to build a revolution in America.
