    Ep. 210: Joseph Allen

    Ep. 210: Joseph Allen

    Derrick Kosinski & Scott Yager are joined by Joseph Allen.

    His time on Double Agents might have been short-lived, but that doesn't mean that Rookie Joseph Allen (@ItsJosephAllen) doesn't have a lot to talk about. With his album "Footprints" dropping on December 23rd, now available for Pre-Order, it was perfect timing to hear how Joseph got started making music and just how long it took him to get to that Golden Buzzer Moment on America's Got Talent.
    PS: We highly recommend watching that HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sINQRbbxToo

    Although we do hear about his music career through the ups and downs, we also break down his run on The Challenge, discussing the daily Challenges, the politics in the house, his partner Big T, calling on Wes and going into a physical elimination Vs Kyle. He pulls no punches. That's for sure.

    This is not a podcast you're going to want to miss. You'll learn far more about Joseph in this podcast than we were able to on the show. We think you'll really like him. He's a great guy.

    Download and Pre-order his album FOOTPRINTS everywhere you get your tunes.
