The Brothas Speak

Informative, relevant, and affirming. In a sea of podcasts that fly off the rails pretty quickly, this show stays true to its name and lets Brothas speak.

Mr. AB

Enjoyed the episode with Lamont Pierre. Please let him know that if he produces we will watch it. I miss his content and I’m still a subscriber.

Great content and new perspectives

Definitely thanks for the interview profiling Frankie knuckles. That era of house music was definitely soulful, beautiful, hypnotic, deep and always fresh. Some of it still holds up well today. I’ve mostly moved on to soulful and some deep dark Drum and Bass like what’s played on the Hospital Records podcast or the DJ Flight Next Chapter podcast, all of which definitely have influences from souls house music. But the house creators and innovators are still in heavy rotation in my playlist.
Loved everything so far in this podcast and all the interviews and discussion surrounding black and people of color. The audio quality definitely needs some work, sometimes it’s hard to hear other end of conversation if it’s a phone interview or the sound levels are in the red so if comes out muffled. If your need an audio engineer, I’m sure in can pitch in. :)
