We had the good fortune of connecting with Afro Rican, Colli Park, 18th Soundproof Hunger Room and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Afro Rican, Colli Park, 18th, why did you pursue a creative career?
The idea of creating a podcast came about on a trip to South Africa. We’re a part of a large travel group that usually takes one big trip a year and that particular year we ended up in Johannesburg and Cape Town. While on the trip we would be off to the side having deep conversations about all aspects of life and before you know it, the entire group would find us and want to join in on our chats. From that point on we figured we could do something with that type of energy so we decided to form Soundproof Hunger Room podcast, We’ve been going at it for 2 yrs now and still enjoying it.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Soundproof Hunger Room isn’t your normal podcast. We don’t always cover the trendy topics or have the big names of athletes or celebrities. We try and highlight small black businesses and entrepreneurs that work within their communities. We like to use our platform as a sounding board or a forum for whats going on around us in our day to day lives. We like to cover topics that can sometimes be very personal, social issues and any adult issues/conversations that we don’t always get to engage in during our daily routines. We also like to bring in people from all walks of life that can provide insight that the average person may not have access to such as financial advising, stocks education, mental health information and other lifestyle subjects.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We first wanna thank all the family and friends that consistently support the show, we also want to thank all the businesses, entrepreneurs and owners that allow us to interview and showcase their products and services. Overall our inspiration comes from within, we sacrifice our personal time and space in order to keep this show on the road. We are truly self driven from our passion of spreading our thoughts and opinions to the masses and engaging with all thought processes that we encounter.
