Titus Falodun, Philadelphia-based broadcaster/writer, hosts and produces a magazine-style podcast called "Off The T." and you are invited to listen, enjoy and share it for free:
The debut episode features diverse guests discussing kicks aka sneakers/tennis shoes/gym shoes, how they relate to sports, black culture and more.
Bay Area native Justin Tipping directed and co-wrote the coming-of-age tale "Kicks" about a black teen, Brandon (Jahking Guillory) growing up in the concrete jungle of Oakland, California. In an effort to get back his coveted Jordan's stolen by a local bully (Kofi Siriboe), Brandon asks his troubled uncle (Mahershala Ali) for help.
After watching the visually stunning film (premiering in theaters September 9th) about style over substance, machismo over manners and kicks over everything, Titus invited Tipping on the podcast to discuss his debut feature film and how he may follow in the footsteps of fellow Bay Area writer/director Ryan Coogler ("Fruitvale Station" "Creed" and "Black Panther"). (0:43)
Other guests include:
Quentin Thomas aka GQ, former UNC Tar Heel basketball player turned rapper, details how he went from coaching legend Roy Williams recruiting him in Oakland to Hip Hop legend 9th Wonder producing him in North Carolina on the legend's Jamla music label, which features rising star Rapsody. (7:11)
Eve Ewing, sociologist who graduated from University of Chicago and Harvard University, talks about what it was like growing up in the shoe culture of Chicago in the 90's era when Michael Jordan played for the Bulls. (22:00)
Ivy SOLE, Charlotte-native rapper who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a co-sign from Rap juggernaut Kendrick Lamar, shares her music and journey, after dropping a spectacular debut in 2016 called Eden. (37:15)
