Infiltrating White Supremacist Organizations With Matt and Tawni Browning

All across America, thousands of hate crimes are committed every year, but only a small number of them get reported. An even smaller fraction are ever prosecuted. The podcast “Invisible Hate” is here to figure out why.

“Invisible Hate” is a true crime podcast about underreported hate crimes. Cohosted by Saadia Khan (“Immigrantly”) and Asad Butt ("American Muslim Project"), the podcast sheds light on the worst true crimes that are motivated by things like race, religion or sexual orientation and are usually perpetrated against minorities.

Each week, the two hosts share the details of a crime committed in North America along with a debate about how to classify it, as well as little-known facts about hate crimes, a discussion about why these crimes are underreported (and why it matters) and personal anecdotes.

On this week’s episode, Khan and Butt share the show’s first interview with Matt and Tawni Browning, focusing on their book “The Hate Next Door: Undercover Within the New Face of White Supremacy.”

Throughout Matt Browning’s career in law enforcement, he spent many years undercover infiltrating white supremacist organizations, often joined by his wife Tawni. The Brownings are on a mission to eliminate hate and injustice. Their undercover infiltration of today's most violent communities and organizations has brought justice to countless lives. Their undercover work was just the beginning; “The Hate Next Door” showcases the new face of white supremacy and extremism.

In their conversation with Khan and Butt, the Brownings reflect on their experiences undercover as well as the larger implications of their work. The interview explores topics such as a perceived rise in extremism and what extremism looks like today, as well as the best ways to combat it.

“Invisible Hate” is a collaboration between Rifelion Media and Immigrantly.
