I wanted to make a podcast about creating the world that I want to see. I grew up on the Navajo Nation and moved back after losing my career in the outdoor industry.
Interview Sten Jodi
1:38:46Today was the premiere of episode 4 of Reservation Dogs on FX. I was able to watch the episode before my conversation with Sten Joddi. Joddi plays Punkin. Punkin's character is a Native American rapper, he is the father of one of the central characters Bear. Joddi is a multitalented person. He is a tattoo artist, trained chef, musician, and makes his acting debut in episode 4 of Reservations Dogs. Joddi and Isaac talk about representation of Indigenous Peoples in media. They share similar stories and are able to have a conversation about their life experiences. Joddi and Isaac share their experience on building individual platforms. Joddi is a very talented person and I had a lot of fun having a conversation with him.
Ep 3 Show About Nothing
30:05Someone asked me what my podcast was about. I said its a show about nothing. Here's whats going on. If you found me though tiktok or instagram that is really great. I hope that I will grow and this podcast will be a way for you to get to know me a little better beyond my 15 seconds I appear on your phone. I really hope that I become someone that is your friend. Someone that has these stream of thoughts that are different. I'm trying. I think this podcast is really about how I've become some person who has gained a following and is slowly learning who I am still. I'm really glad I recorded this episode. I speak about how I feel about my reactions I get when I tell people I don't drink and also my thoughts on how Bring It On and burning sage blend. My tiktok account is NAVABROisss and I will get better at creating a podcast. This is a journey for me and I hope you stay with me as I grow into a podcaster as well.
