S3: E11 - Producing podcasts - From radio to a new medium: Daron Jenkins - Art, Music, Podcasts

In this episode, Christabel talks to Daron Jenkins, a NY-based media professional, content creator, podcast host, and producer, about what would happen if creators stopped second-guessing themselves and trusted their gut.

Daron talks about how he created one of his shows, ‘12 Million,’ with his co-host Akbar Majeed and why he named the show after the Richard Wright book, ‘12 Million Black Voices.’ He also reflects on the show’s first episode, 'What it Means to be a Black Man in America,’ which Daron recorded right after George Floyd’s murder. It’s a raw, personal, and pained reflection of how he felt at that moment, his background, and how racism has impacted him. Elsewhere in the show, discover which entertainment and civil rights legends he grew up with, people who have influenced his life and work ethic.

Daron is a creative entrepreneur and produces multiple podcasts covering various topics, from entertainment, entrepreneurship, music, and sports. The show ‘12 Million’ is now in its third season and has gathered many people, from Olympians to policy advocates, to discuss the positivity they bring to the world through their work.
