Ep. 073 - I love my country (w. Chabin Goldenchild)

It started out with one song. Just a simple listen of one song and I was hell-bent of having this individual on the podcast. The lyrics, the beat, the energy, the message...come to think of it, I guess it was pretty good mix of all of the above. What was undeniable though was the feeling I felt from the words of truth and honesty that his latest single "Lakay Mwen"("My Home" in Creole) was conveying. See, Chabin Golden Child, through a very colourful and intelligent mix of wordplay and...

Ep. 064 - Arm People with Love, Hope & Faith (w. Svens Telemaque)

"I'm not interested in talking about your rap sheet" is what I told him. Sure. It would have been easy and simple to make this a conversation layered with stories about his less precarious past. Anecdotes about his run-ins with the law, to local gangs, to friends that are not with us anymore, to pushing, to incarceration... That, in my opinion was an easy route and consequentially a small thread in the tapestry that defines my next guest's journey. Indeed, though his work as a poet,...

One of the truest and most amazing things about this journey is the incredible conversations and wonderful insights I get to experience from these awesome people who accept my invitation to sit down and share their story and time.
