Meet Devary (Dev The Coolest) and Justin (JB) of #SlickTalk Podcast in East Adam

Today we’d like to introduce you to Devary (Dev The Coolest) and Justin (JB).

Devary and Justin, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
#SlickTalk Podcast started as a bi-weekly wine down where we sat around the dining room table, drank a glass of wine and talked about the issues they were faced with – and the topics were endless. So much so, that we figured it was important to have these conversations on a larger scale. Since June 2018, we’ve been creating content that sparks taboo conversations with the understanding that it is important to talk about what’s uncomfortable in order to move forward.

Has it been a smooth road?
We created this podcast with zero help nor understanding of how to create the content. We took a leap of faith and learned everything on our own and took the brunt of any mistakes head-on. We also dealt with the uncertainty of whether or not people would be receptive to what we had to say. After completing a season at the dining room table with the cheapest mics we can afford, we found a studio to record in, with better sound quality, and the rest is present.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with #SlickTalk Podcast – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
#SlickTalk is a podcast that aims to spark the taboo conversations that’s aligned with our intersectionalities and beyond. Not only are we proud of being able to be a voice for people that look and love like us, we’re aiming to educate those that do not know about a life different from theirs.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
The fuel that drives everyone towards creativity is what we appreciate most about LA. But the smog and traffic we could do without.
