Songs To Live By is a podcast celebrating Black culture through the shared love of music. Host Vick Hope is joined by two guests, from different generations, to share the songs that shaped them. Each guest brings two songs and each episode is a journey into their lives, our history and some great music - new and old. That’s guests like Doc Brown, Mica Paris and Tiffany Calver; all picking tracks and swapping stories about themselves and their experiences growing up. These are the songs that make us who we are. Songs that help us tell our stories. Songs that express our struggles. Songs that celebrate Black excellence. These are Songs To Live By. Coming up on Songs To Live By… Rizzle Kicks' Jordan Stephens and poet Benjamin Zephaniah pick tracks by The Streets and The Meditations. They chat about spoken word, lyrics and life (and why Jordan has a fanboy crush on Benjamin). Comedian Sophie Duker and Lady Phyll, founder of UK Black Pride, talk about big personalities, motivation and what made them tick as a child. With songs by Boney M and Ms. Dynamite. Writer and rapper Doc Brown and Blogger Zeze Millz chat about music, skipping church and the early days of a thing called the internet. With songs by Gospel superstar Kirk Franklin and Nas. Plus, comedian Dane Baptiste and poet Sophia Thakur, actor Paterson Joseph and gal-dem writer Niellah Arboine; activist Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu and jockey Khadijah Mellah; rapper Hardy Caprio and actor Akemnji Ndifornyen.
