This week Franklin Leonard presents a special bonus episode: the first installment of FRUIT. From the creator of the YouTube web series The Mis-adventures of Awkward Black Girl, Issa Rae debuts a 10-part audio drama titled “FRUIT” exclusively for Howl. Listen as a professional football player named X, recounts his journey of self-discovery and sexual exploration both on and off the field. FRUIT chronicles X's relationship with his friends, teammates and family as they impose their own perceptions of his role in an alpha-male dominated industry of professional sports. Amidst questioning for a larger league-related scandal, X must ultimately decide how he wants his story to be told, for himself, and for others like him.
