Kid Fury and Crissle humorously spill the tea on ‘The Read’
From Loud Speakers Network comes “The Read,” a comedic podcast hosted by bloggers Kid Fury and Crissle. On weekly episodes, the hosts spill on “pop culture’s most trying stars,” hip-hop stories, and updates from their lives.
Kid Fury and Crissle are friends based in New York City and the show doubles as a therapeutic space to talk honestly. Kid Fury is originally from Miami and Crissle hails from Oklahoma City. The hosts have uncanny chemistry and hold nothing back when dishing, sharing their opinions, “throwing shade,” and “spilling the tea.” On their site, the hosts explain that only Beyoncé and Blue Ivy are safe from any critiques, because as far as they’re concerned, they’re the only queens. They cannot wait for Beyoncé’s upcoming Renaissance World Tour.
Crissle is a writer who was also featured on the show Drunk History. Her writings have appeared in Buzzfeed, ESSENCE, Slate, The Washington Post, and more. Kid Fury is a YouTuber and blogger. He also performs stand up comedy.
The co-hosting duo turned their podcast into a TV show for Fuse in 2019. When they first started the show as a fun project, they had no idea they would be able to monetize it. They didn’t have a plan for “The Read,” per se, and took a leap of faith.
In episodes, the hosts celebrate Black excellence. They applaud Olympians, Black starting quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes, people on Forbes‘ top earners’ list like Rihanna, and more. Stream over 500 episodes in any order that clock in under two hours on average. If you’re looking for some topical news updates, start the series from the most recent episode. Kid Fury and Crissle have been going strong on “The Read” since 2013 with no signs of stopping.
