Daniel J. Hill | Conversations

Podcast co-host of The Dan & Kody Podcast with Kody Fredrick, and podcast co-host of Melrose Place Podcast with Jenny Hill, Daniel J. Hill joins the Conversation! Daniel talks about life in Washington, DC, growing up bi-racial and his move out to Southern California. He also talks about his love of all things DC sports, and balancing the co-host duties of two podcasts. The love of both of his co-hosts are also shown in this episode. Daniel also discusses …

  • Dealing with being bi-racial – [“I coined the phrase ‘HAfrican’ when I was a kid because I hated picking.”]
  • Washington, DC as a sports town – [“If you go to a Wizards game – on the big screen they will show the logo of the Cowboys star when they want you to boo.”]
  • On embracing sports in Southern California – [“I have a hard time embracing (the fan culture) … Laker fans are very entitled, and they’re just as deranged as (Lakers’ principal owner) Jeanie Buss.”]
  • Who is his favorite co-host – [“Family’s family. I gotta’ go with wifey.”]

Daniel’s words of wisdom: “There’s a real big thing going on with independent podcasting … people are pulling out really great stuff and are not associated with any networks.”

  • His time in the US Army and National Guard – [“I was in Kuwait, Afghanistan, Iraq – Afghanistan again … as far as overseas. Being stationed … in the United States, I was at Ft. Campbell (KY), Ft. Carson (CO), (and) Ft. Benning (GA).”]
  • When he started podcasting – [“I came across this thing called ‘audio blogging’ … This was back when WordPress was really basic.”]
  • The motivation for ‘Raw and Real’ – [“I wouldn’t even be podcasting if wasn’t for my wife.”]
