I simply didnt know very well what it designed to have money. I was eating the $3 knishes on the road, says Issa Rae in Direct Deposit: WHAT GOES ON When Black People Get Rich, a fresh podcast from Audible premiering Oct. 13.
Tech entrepreneur-turned-author Chad Sanders (Black Magic: What Black Leaders Learned From Trauma and Triumph) hosts the eight-episode series, that was inspired by their own experiences as both struggling writer and up-and-coming Hollywood scribe, mentored by Spike Lee and writing for HBO Maxs Rap Sh!t. To greatly help him navigate the changes that include rising fortunes particularly because they pertain to the initial dynamics of Black wealth he speaks to several high-profile guests from the worlds of entertainment, business and sports, including Rae (creator of Rap Sh!t), Charles D. King, Gabrielle Union, Soledad OBrien, beauty influencer Jackie Aina, Slutty Vegan founder Pinky Cole and elite NFL quarterback trainer Quincy Avery.
I believe its an extremely Black thing to feel in charge of individuals around you also to ensure that theyre good also to not feel great until they’re, Rae continues in her episode.
Sanders also created and co-hosts the Quitters podcast with Modern Family alumna Julie Bowen.
