Welcome to Life According to Uncle Tuck (me). Here’s a few questions I get asked about this podcast.
Why the new podcast? Well with BOREDinDE being about people making it happen from DE. My producer (G’Jurel) figured I need something that explores well… me. From the stories that cover a tad over 4 decades to all that I’ve done will make for some cool ass stories. And hopefully will allow others a slight peek into my world.
We know about the stories, but what’s up with the moniker Mr. One Thousand Lifetimes? I’ve been told that a person would expect to damn near have to live a thousand lives to have the stories I’ve shared.
Is this podcast going to be both audio and video? As of right now yes, but with one exception… I may do this as a live either on YouTube or Periscope.
No Facebook? If I had my way I’d ditch Facebook altogether, but it is a necessary evil. And since it’s becoming more integrated with Instagram that may make it easier for me to bail. But real rap I’d rather not use Facebook… more of a personal decision which may change in the future.
What can we expect when checking out this new podcast? Man I’m going to discuss a variety of things from my travels. Now each episode won’t be in a chronological order based on the story as I’ll do some mad time jumps based on how I feel. Example I may talk about when I started as a DJ (which started in the early 80’s) to having a squad of strippers and going from club to club (this is the early/mid 90’s) to living in Philly (early 2000’s) up to the present day and time (yes everyday is damn near an adventure).
How frequent will you be dropping episodes? Right now it may be a biweekly thing till it picks up, which at that time I’d love to be dropping one a week.
So you’re going live, will the viewer be able to chime in to what’s being shared on that episode? YES, which is another reason I’d rather use Periscope and YouTube. But if I have to get it poppin off Facebook people will still be able to chime in and see their question via the main screen I’m sharing during the broadcast. I’ll also take questions after the broadcast and will do a brief video answering those questions. You’ll find that on Instagram TV or REELS.
Since these are your life stories will you keep the names of those in these stories or will you be changing them? Good fucking question! To keep the peace as many in these stories I still have contact with, no real names will be used. See I may be willing to share these stories but many other may not care to relive the foolishness or comical nights we spent together. So no real names will be used outside of mine or anyone who wishes to have their name shared.
