New discovery

I saw a clip on IG and found the page, so I went back to when they were OTC I’m on the second episode after Taj left and so far I enjoy it, it’s funny, interesting, and I love their chemistry! Can’t wait to catch up to current episodes

Truth with laughter

I enjoy listening to this because it’s pure jokes! Then again, it’s being truthful all the freaking way man. If they ever have a station for Black young coming up radio stations or new heat to come around - this is it . Conversation is always interesting throughout the podcast. 💪🏾

"PEACE KING AND QUEENS!" 👏🏾 I've been tuning in to O.T.C. Podcast for a while now and I really appreciate the perspectives on didn't takes from the culture or politics! I may not always agree and I actually like that...being able to listen and hear different views.
There's a good balance of "heavy" but neccesary discussion and that in between, in the episodes. I love to listen while driving and I catch myself responding in traffic or getting my friends to listen and create our own discussion.
Queen Taj, THE Cool, and Mr. Opinionated are some dope indiviudals and hearing them together is everything. 🙌🏾
