Coffee Dojo is a show about the intersection of leadership, culture, and creativity and bold outliers who are disrupting business as usual. Host Keba Konte, founder of Red Bay Coffee and renowned artist and food entrepreneur, sits down with thought leaders and creatives from around the world and around the block. The show takes its name from the actual “coffee dojo” Konte created in his garage back in 2013 when he dedicated himself to mastering the craft of coffee roasting and launching a successful business. When guests step into the “coffee dojo” podcast, they reveal insights about what it takes to “hone their skills, master a craft, and practice” whether that be as a founder of a tech startup, a celebrated artist or thought leader, or a dedicated community organizer.

Ours is an inclusive space where we lift up leadership stories of the historically marginalized, especially people of color and women. So join us for untold stories, unlocked codes, and new approaches to master the art of leadership.

Every week, listeners can get their “coffee dojo fix” three times a week, as we release each episode in three acts, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

    Ep. 1 (Part 4): Boots Riley

    Ep. 1 (Part 4): Boots Riley

    For this season’s final episode, we kick it with musician-turned-filmmaker Boots Riley. His feature-film directorial debut, “Sorry to Bother You” premiered at Sundance and was released in July 2018. The film, which he describes as an “absurdist dark comedy with magical realism and science fiction, inspired by the world of telemarketing,” took Hollywood by storm (grossed 18.3M from $3.2M) and disrupted common notions about the power of satire to drop smart bombs. In this extended 4-part episode, Keba and Boots chop it up about how they met at SF State, how Boots got his nickname, political activism and class struggle, his iconic band, The Coup, the role of artists-as-entrepreneurs, his upcoming new tv series, and much, much more. Stay tuned after the show for “Mo’Dojo,” a new aftershow segment to share off-mic stories and guests’ outtakes. Follow @redbaycoffee or @gamechangersfilms for updates about next season.
