My name is Vance Chapman and I was born in 1990 on an Air Force base in Germany. I know what you’re thinking - “He’s German.” But technically I was born an American citizen since it was on a US Air Force base. Luckily for me, my parents were stationed back in America for the years of my childhood I remember. After living in Nebraska and Louisiana up until I was 10, I landed in North Carolina where I’m still currently located. I grew up in a small town north of Charlotte called Kannapolis. The momentum of graduating high school carried me to college where I ultimately realized the University wasn't something I was interested in. I’m single with no kids looking to turn my passions into a career.
I've been told all my life to find something I'm passionate about and make a career out of it - so that’s what I'm doing with my Podcasts. I fell in love with Podcasts almost instantly when I started listening to them in 2012. The genuine, uncensored conversations being held were about politics, personal interests and relationships were actually meaningful to me. These pod casts were reliable information, unlike the conversations of radio and news stations that I had been force fed all my life. My goal is to continue to create conversations that bring out real information, that every one can use.
My name is Antonio Johnson Jr (Tjdos1s) i was born in Oakland California 1991 and grew up in Los Angeles most of my life while also living back and forth between North Carolina. You know in the movie “The Wood” Mike moves from North Carolina to LA ? Well that’s my story but the exact opposite. My mother whose originally from Carson California, sent me to live with my father in a little town just outside of Charlotte called Kannapolis when i was 15. As you can imagine moving from a big city on the west coast to a little town in the country wasn’t the easiest transition. After excelling in high school football i went on to The University of North Carolina Pembroke, where i had earned a full scholarship and later on received my Bachelors. I noticed though while my college career was coming to an end football hadn't gone the way i planned due to an injury and i was totally clueless about working cause i never had a job before.
Now that some time has passed since receiving my degree i have worked a few jobs none having anything to do with my degree. Shortly after being introduced to the working world it didn't take long to realize punching a clock every day for a company was what i wanted for the rest of my life. But like many athletes who don’t go on to professional leagues i was stuck wondering “what do i want to do?” Not too happy with the results after researching different career paths one of my best friends (Vance) brought my attention to Podcasting. Completely ignorant to this mass culture thats been around, once i was introduced to it I had to get my hands in the mix. Our podcasts gives me a platform to be myself and speak on topics from a perspective I think others would agree with or get insight into someone thinking totally different then them.
