Give The People What They Want
Listening to music at work can sometimes get a bit redundant. To switch it up, I like to throw on a podcast to get my creative juices going. My favorite one these days is the Jalen & Jacoby podcast on the Grantland Network. ESPN's Jalen Rose and David Jacoby give the people what they want, breaking down the latest in sports and pop culture as only they can.
I love they way Jalen carries himself throughout the podcast. As a former NBA player, he gives full insight of what it's like to be a big name athlete while also sharing some stories from his flamboyant past. Regardless of the topic, his perspective is always honest and entertaining. Jacoby is a great counterpart by the way he steers the show and asks questions that most fans are curious about...essentially, giving the people what they want.
At the beginning of every episode, Jalen sings the chorus to the famous O'Jay's tune "Give The People What They Want". (During the show, he usually sings another chorus of a 70s hit or spits a few rap lyrics whenever he deems necessary.) Not sure if the original song has a political spin on it, but for some reason, when Jalen says it, I always think of it as a campaign message for a politician.
Inspired by political campaign art, I put together some hand-drawn type to thank the guys for giving listeners what they want.
For the record, I would totally vote for Jalen Rose in any political election.
If you're a fan of the show, stay tuned for my next ones about "Champagning & Campaigning", "Keep Getting Dem Checks" and "Pop The Trunk".
