Conversations with The Juice Podcast

Today we’d like to introduce you to The Juice Podcast. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Lifelong friends Jose Arauz and Mustafaa Juma would go to Brenner Park in Buena Park, California and hang out. Their conversations would always make their friends laugh and keep them engaged the whole time, so one day they decided to record their conversations and turn it into a podcast. With a microphone and a camera they filmed the 1st episode of their podcast “Park Dwellers”. As they refined their show, they brought on another lifelong friend/ Jose’s cousin Frankie Perez as the 3rd host and began recording their shows in a studio with Andy Acosta. Soon after they brought on videographer Issac Correa and he began filming all their shows for Youtube beginning with episode 19. In the past year, releasing weekly episodes, their show has featured talent from all over OC, the IE, and LA from musicians to tattoo artists to professional fighters, and they don’t plan to stop there.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Scheduling is the biggest challenge we face in production. There are several moving parts to every episode and it can be difficult at times getting everything lined up. Other than that, production goes smoothly. We all know our jobs and what to do to get the show done.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We specialize in featuring the talent of all kinds from OC and the surrounding areas on our show. We’re known for our laid-back go with the flow interview style. We’ve been told our show doesn’t feel like a show, it feels like your sitting with your friends having wholesome, funny conversation. We most proud of our consistency. We’ve released a show every week for 48 consecutive weeks at the time of this article and we haven’t missed a single week.

We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
We learned to be accommodating based on the preference of each guest.
