By Rodney Omeokachie
The host, Rodney Omeokachie, curates ideas, stories, and conversations that explore the creative mindset that separate high-quality individuals from everyone else. It challenges both the host and listeners to explore new ways of thinking about their personal development aspirations and the ways they wish to impact the world. The best version of ourselves is only a mindset away and Rodney delivers the message in his unique style. Deep thoughts, big questions with an unexpected dose of pop culture, history and, dopeness.
It is a podcast for gods.

The UnderCoza Story: What I've Learnt and How We Can Do Better.
I trended nationwide on the 30th June, 2019 after a Twitter thread of mine went viral. The thread detailed my infiltration of a megachurch (COZA) whose senior pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo, was accused of rape by Busola Dakolo, the wife of musician, Timi Dakolo. I know, sounds like something out of a Hollywood movie.  In this episode, I give a little more context to the events that transpired on that fateful day -- the protests, the Coza experience, how it felt to be Twitter-famous and the need to support our women during these pivotal moments in our country's history.  The events of that day, earned me name, Undercoza Brother, in reference to the fact that I was undercover in Coza.

[Season finale] My experience in Nairobi
In the final episode of the first season, I dive deep into my 3 week trip to Nairobi. I share some of my favorite things about the city as well as the things that were lacking. Everything from the food, the weather, even the nightlife is touched upon but the highlight of this episode is my thoughts on the social dynamics between Kenyan woman and Kenyan men, specifically Nairobi. I 'creatively' unpack the gender issues we face in our daily lives using the Kenyan society as a backdrop, exploring feminism, patriarchy and everything in between. I also explore the differences between how Kenyan women and Nigerian woman, handle the suffering they've endured in their respective societies. The episode is rapped with an intimate conversation between myself and Kenyan interior designer, Makena Obura.
