Episode 172 - Danielle O. Johnson

We sat with DJ, entrepreneur, and the first black woman to own a digital radio station, Ms. Hot Sauce – AKA Danielle O Johnson.

This is probably the most raunchy episode we have ever done, which isn’t really saying much because, well, Ron and I are kinda like saints without the two required miracles.  But we do have some inappropriate language in this episode, so block your child's ears as you listen and make this episode go. crazy viral!

Danielle started Spark FM just this past year and she has been working hard to build a company that promotes the music and voices that should be heard.  Her own podcast called Henny and Hot Wings is not for the faint of heart as their very popular show is described as an “Exciting, exuberant, and sometimes x-rated personal lifestyle Podcast”.

We tried to keep up with the x-rated conversation to try and fit in.  We did our best. Either way, we had some great laughs with Danielle and we are glad you could join us.
