BrownTown on BrownTown. We take a step back to reflect on the year 2018 as well as the very inception the podcast to remember the good, the bad, and the ugly. With the help of audio engineer and dearest friend Genta Tamashiro, BrownTown raises a glass with all of you as we look back at some of the realest moments with some of the dopest people around.
Throughout the conversation, the group discusses our amazing guests, Chi DNA (a SoapBox film and multimedia project) branded episodes, past live recording events, the inner-workings of creating the podcast from scratch as well as David, Caullen, and Genta's thoughts on particular episodes. Listen and rejoice as we look to bigger and better things come 2019!
