In the 20 years since first taking her personality on air, it’s safe to say Angie Martinez has learned a thing or two about captivating an audience. Through self-hosted radio shows, on-screen roles, and two authored books, her packed resume shines a spotlight on the fiery heart of the New York native, making way for projects that combine the best of her many media-reigning talents. One of these projects, introduced earlier this year, is Martinez’ interview podcast In Real Life.

Featuring every who’s who of modern culture from artists to athletes, Martinez dedicates her show to (fittingly) real-life conversations. Overlapping years of hosting top radio show with iHeart Media, The Angie Martinez Show, the new In Real Life boasts an impressive roster of star-studded guests, proving to be Martinez’ biggest step in creative autonomy yet. Less than a year in production, the media mogul has already opened up with the likes of Ashanti, Usher, and Kelly Rowland, with her most recent episode welcoming Mike Tyson to the mic.

In a discussion on love, anger, family, and success, Martinez and Tyson take a 50-minute deep dive into life as they know it, weaving current anecdotes like cancel culture into larger personal stories. And by looking past the notoriety of her guests to get there, they are some powerful stories indeed.

In Real Life episodes can be found now on Spotify, iHeart platforms, and YouTube.
