Those People

Those People

By Those People
Those People is a Podcast with People, about People. Each volume we focus on one “Identity”. That may be something super broad such as “Creators” or it may be something more narrow like “Democratic Candidates for Congress”. Regardless of the subject, the format will stay the same: A narrative biography from childhood to present day, a look at their current work and how their identity influenced it, and a look at the other people along the way who helped our guests see themselves that way. Hosted & Produced by: Mitch Gayns

Vol. 2 Ep. 17 Uncle Vick (Blank Kanvas Collective)
This week brings us another Those People installment of “Pod People” where we’re joined by podcasters who cover the types of people we’re talking to. In volume 2 we’re kicking it with creatives & this week we’re joined by Uncle Vick - a Podcast Host, former MC and lifelong hiphop head who’s been covering the culture, and it’s creators, for a LONG time. As it’s black history month, we start focusing on the black experience Vick’s closeness with it, and the circumstances that estranged Mitch from it, before diving into giant families, being raised by drug dealers, interracially dating and SO much more. Vick is a fellow founder of Blank Kanvas, a collective of creators ranging from rappers to podcast hosts, fashion designers to videographers helping one another create, grow and finance their dreams. We were first brought together through a fan group of the Joe Budden Podcast and have since become close friends, and I was super excited to share this interview back to back with the Matthew Harris one, as a Ying and Yang of the black experience in close proximity - despite being in two entirely different countries and eras. Vick is self described as one of Those…#Passionate, #longwinded, #misunderstood, #artsy, #selfaware People.

Volume 1 of Those People explores "Political People," In particular Democratic Candidates for Congress. In our 4th Episode Mitch sits down with Joshua Collins, a candidate for WA-10’s house seat, challenging long term incumbent Denny Heck from WAY left of the establishment democrat. Despite being our first “Cis Straight White Male” guest on the show we talk about his “Big Gay Truck Driving Socialist Agenda,” How to Negotiate with Republicans, and the Green New Deal. But as you know, we’re more about the people than the politics so we also talk step-family, child abuse, growing up in small town Kansas and overlap the personal and the political with a conversation about NAFTA’s impact in Joshua’s hometown. Sadly, Mr. Collins was limited on time so this episode doesn’t contain everybody’s favorite podcast segment, Random People, but don’t fear it’ll be back in next week’s bonus episode! In addition to being a #Political person, Joshua Collins self-identifies as one of Those #DemocraticSocialist, #FarLeft, #WorkingClass, #TruckDrivin, #Young #RasinBranLoving People.

Vol. 1 Ep. 1: Brianna Wu (US House, MA-08)
Volume 1 of Those People explores "Political People," In particular Democratic Candidates for Congress. In our debut episode, Briana Wu, a candidate for MA-08's house seat, challenging incumbent Stephen Lynch, joins the show to discuss growing up in Mississippi, Tech, Gaming, the Iraq War, the Bush Era, and of course how Gamergate affected her life and her politics. We also talk queerness, Batman, what the media was like before Trump and a bunch of other stuff I'm not going to give away here all in an attempt to answer the questions: Who is Brianna Wu, and what makes her a Democratic Candidate for Congress? In addition to being a #Political person, Brianna Wu self-identifies as one of Those #ProgressiveDemocrat, #bi-sexual #woman #Feminist #tech-industry People.
