Born literally out of an online brainstorming session, the podcast started with a conversation with friends on how to socialize our thoughts in a digestible format.

With guests like authors Hill Harper and Michael Eric Dyson to artists & change agents like David Banner and Killer Mike, the Brainstorm With Dometi podcast serves as a platform for conversations about hiphop, politics and hot topics with our culture’s tastemakers. Exclusive segments air on Chicago’s historic, African-American owned WVON 1690 and the iHeartRadio app.
