Artwork for #MATTER


Shondaland Audio and iHeartPodcasts

When Gerald Hayes (Amin Joseph, SNOWFALL) witnesses his teenage son Niles’s (Nile Bullock, POWER BOOK III: RAISING KANAN) brutal beating by police officers, a split-second decision leads him to being barricaded in friend Jayce’s (Steve Harris, THE PRACTICE) nearby restaurant with one of the officers, Sergeant Place (Haley Joel Osment, THE KOMINSKY METHOD). As the situation deteriorates and the press paints Niles as the offender, Gerald fights for justice for his son using the one tool at his disposal in that moment – social media. Told through the lens of an investigative journalist, Kate Bell (Jennifer Christopher, TIMELESS) takes us back to that fateful afternoon and its aftermath a year later through interviews, found surveillance footage and more. Additional voices include: Tarina Pouncy (ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ.) as Michelle Hayes, Pooch Hall (RAY DONOVAN) as Martin, and Snoop Dogg as Big H.

  • Awesome.

    This podcast tells you it’s fictional but it’s so good I really thought it was real. I even started researching it and after a while realized it wasn’t. Amazing storytelling.
