This audio archive post features interview-centric podcasts from The Dynasty’s 2006/2007 podcast series, Chicago*uniteD.
In 2005, digital media and promotions outfit The Ministry Of The Dynasty arrived as Chicago’s first music and nightlife culture podcast. In 2006 and through 2007, The Dynasty (pictured below) produced the short-lived spin-off, Chicago*uniteD, which continued TMOTD’s focus on local and national indie and electro culture scene, and featured interviews with premiere local and national talent. C*U was hosted by Jaime Black, Desiree (AKA Lady D), blogger Rachel White (then known as The White Rabbit), and event producer/DJ/screen-printer Mikul Wing.
