S4E07 - Darby Wheeler (Producer/Filmmaker)


Darby Wheeler is an accomplished television producer and filmmaker whose credits include The Strombo Show and Matty Matheson's Dead Set on Life.

His latest project, Hip-Hop Evolution, is an award-winning Netflix docu-series that profiles the history of hip-hop music through in-depth interviews with influential artists.

We talk to Darby about assuming the enormous responsibility of telling the story of hip-hop music, why host Shad got nervous while interviewing Q-Tip and KRS-One, and that time in high school when he and his friends drove to Detroit to see a Public Enemy concert.
