"WHATEVER YOU SAY PRODUCTIONS"
SCENE ONE: SAMANTHA & ADDRIANA ARE FORELORNED BUT HAVE AN IDEA
LOCATION: NEW YORK CITY
SET: STUDIO ONE, "LIVING ROOM" MID AFTERNOON IN OCTOBER
MEMO: TO OUR FORMER BOSSES - THANK YOU FOR FIRING US.
SCENE OPENS ON SAMANTHA AND ADDRIANA SITTING ON A COUCH, EATING DORITOS AND SULKING.
Our co-founders, Samantha and Addriana, are restless creatives and 2018 was profoundly rough for both of them both personally and professionally. With job security slipping through their fingers during a time when they were smack in the middle of launching their adult lives in New York City, they set out to build something they could hold on to that couldn't get taken away.
The only answer was a startup and something that would need the least overhead but require the most effort was podcasting. With just enough money to buy a website domain and a microphone, the next question was, "What should we talk about?"
The two were overwhelmed watching The Trump Administration bulldoze the world stage but Samantha and Addriana found it difficult to engage their other girlfriends in political conversations.
BECAUSE HERE'S THE THING..."Unless you have paid attention to World History and have a deep understanding of Politics, getting involved in the conversation can be intimidating. We wanted to help." - Samantha
Dicks & Politics premiered in November of 2018 and quickly became the go-to podcast for young adults who wanted to get involved without navigating through the often elitist drabble controlled by mainstream media. It also became a hub for "Boomers" to get a fresh perspective on World News and Culture that is the pulse of this generation.
Before we could blink, WYSP was established and a full executive team was hired to meet the demand for fresh, unfiltered, digestible content with one goal: Start conversations.
SAMANTHA: I HAVE AN IDEA
SAMANTHA: I'M GOING TO START A PODCAST TO PROVE THAT WOMEN CAN BE ARTICULATE, RAUNCHY, EMOTIONAL AND ASSERTIVE AND IT WON'T IMPACT THE WAY PEOPLE TREAT THEM.
ADDRIANA: *STARES INTENTLY*
SAMANTHA: I'M GOING TO CALL IT DICKS AND POLITICS. WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT POLITICS AND DATING AND SEX.
ADDRIANA: OK! LET'S MAKE A WEBSITE...
