Roe Was Never Enough

Ep. 89

After Roe v. Wade was overturned, many wondered what living in a post-Roe America would look like. But for a lot of Native people, Roe has never been a reality. Though the federal government is obligated to provide tribes with healthcare, decades-old restrictions on federal funding have severely limited the provision of abortion. 


Organizations like Indigenous Women Rising have been advocating for reproductive rights and abortion in Native communities for years. VICE News Reports’ Adreanna Rodriguez takes a dive deep into how IWR is filling the gap left by the government’s long history of manipulating Native people's reproductive well being… and how Native people have specific needs when it comes to reproductive justice. Needs that are deeply holistic and embedded in their cultural history.


This episode was reported and produced by Adreanna Rodriguez in partnership with Type Investigations, where Adreanna is an Ida B. Wells Fellow. It was edited by Adizah Eghan, Noy Thrupkaew, Cassi Feldman, and Stephanie Kariuki, with research assistance from Paco Alvarez.

Undercover in Guyana

Ep. 90
Last year, VICE News Correspondent Isobel Yeung went undercover to understand how international business deals were being brokered in Guyana. This small country in South America has one of the fastest growing economies in the world right now. Newly discovered natural resources have attracted a lot of foreign investment from China and the U.S., placing Guyana in the middle of a tug-of war for soft power in the region. Recently, infrastructure contracts -  roads, bridges, and a hydroelectric power plant - have been awarded to Chinese companies. In this episode of VICE News Reports, Yeung digs into how business is done in Guyana and uncovers allegations of corruption that reach far into the country’s highest levels. This episode was produced by Steph Brown and edited by Ashley Cleek and Stephanie Kariuki.  Special thanks to Belle Cushing, Daniel Vergara, Jika Gonzalez, Craig Thomson and Karishma Vyas. VICE News Reports is produced by Sophie Kazis, Jen Kinney, and Adriana Tapia.

The Rise of the Moors: ‘We Want Our Own Nation’

Ep. 88
Moors in America believe that they – and many Black Americans – are descendents of the Moroccan Empire, which they claim once extended all the way from North Africa to North America. This would make Moors indigenous to an America that far predates the United States.But beyond that shared credence, the movement is scattered. Some seek only to practice spiritual beliefs while others maintain that being a Moor means U.S. laws do not apply to them. A few even use their identity as Moors to justify violence, theft, and fraud. Vice News’ correspondent Alzo Slade takes us inside the different facets of the Moorish movement, to try and understand the alternate history they believe in, and why the current social and political landscape is making Moorish nationalism more appealing.This episode was produced by Jen Kinney and Sam Greenspan.
