No Plan, no introductions, just conversation.
theBrainstorm is a podcast coming out of Kampala, Uganda. Every month we gather a handful of Kampala's many creative individuals from across a variety of industries to talk about whatever's on their mind right now. Inspiration, upcoming projects, why Masaka doesn't f*** with 103bpm - it gets random, and we like it that way.
