We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamal Jones, Kevin Barber Jr, Bola Animashaun and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jamal, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Our most important factor for our success is consistency. I know it may sound cliché, but in the podcast industry that’s what separates the great podcasts from the mediocre. It’s been a battle for all of us trying to deal with covid and conflicting schedules with being fathers and husbands. At the end of the day we try our best to carve out that time to get a pod or two in.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We wanted to change the narrative about black fathers. We started this podcast as an outlet for fathers to talk about life as a husband, father, brother, and son, while also getting perspectives from women as well. We wanted to share stories of real life situations that could help someone who is going through it and does not know where to turn. Our creative side makes the show funny. You better have tough skin while sitting next to us, cause the jokes will fly. All in all we want to give our listeners and good time and actually have them walking away saying I can do that to better my life, or wow I’m glad I tuned it this episode taught me something new.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We would recommend them to visit Craft Burger with our good friend Chef Tune. He has two locations one in Downtown Houston and the other in the suburb of Katy. We would recommend you grab a cigar at McCoy’s Fine Cigars Downtown. After a nice cigar you can make your way to Midtown for some drinks at a bar of your choice. Finally if you still in the mood head on over to the Historic Third Ward for some fun at either The Turkey Leg Hut or Bar 5015 for some late evening fun.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I think it would be in our best interest to shoutout our wives. Without them none of this would be possible. They are the ones watching our kids while we record for a couple of hours on a Sunday. That’s a lot to deal with my the other partner is “working” or should we just say having fun.
