Are you tired of the mainstream media not covering the people, stories, and issues that matter the most? We are too!

That's why we launched The Breakdown podcast last year. After 300+ episodes and tens of millions of audio streams, the team behind The Breakdown with Shaun King, has decided to finally launch The Breakdown LIVE!

This will be our DAILY, hard-hitting video news broadcast launching on May1st!

We'll start out going LIVE every single THURSDAY then add a new day of the week to our schedule as our Patreon community grows!
2,035 of 3,000 patrons
When we reach 3,000 patrons, we will take The Breakdown from ONE EPISODE per week to TWO EPISODES per week. As it stands right now, we will host the show EVERY FRIDAY, but once we cross 3,000 patrons, we will go LIVE every Wednesday and Friday.
