Hi, my name is Uni V. Sol and I am a music artist/voice actor, who has spent the last 20 years of my life songwriting, recording, producing, performing and releasing music on my own.

Nowadays, I spend a bulk of my time selling services on Fiverr. In this podcast, I take time away from the studio to talk to friends, family and other business owners big and small.

Sometimes I share some of my music, as well as document my journey via audio. Feel free to visit univsolmc.com and say hi!

146: Uncle Ronald Talks About Being A Probation Officer and What Life is like as a College Athlete
Uncle Ronald is one of my role models. When we were young, the talk was about how he went to College on a basketball scholarship and shooting for the NBA. Over the years though, we saw much more than sports out of Uncle Ronald, from him starting and nurturing is own family to helping folks that have found themselves in the system. I'm sure you will find a jewel or two in this episode. Featuring music by the God NE of Radio Wreck Records: univsolmc.bandcamp.com
