Show Description

It’s Monday morning at 11 a.m. and The Beat is live. These ladies are talking news, politics and pop culture and they are not pulling punches. But today, something is different. Rumblings of a mysterious, world encompassing, and never-before-seen natural disaster have begun to trickle into the newsroom. Panic, chaos, entire countries disappearing, and the question on everyone’s mind is, “Whose fault is it, anyway?”
