The Black Effect Podcast Network, the joint venture between syndicated radio personality Charlamagne Tha God and iHeartMedia, is adding a financial podcast to its lineup. Earn Your Leisure is hosted by financial advisor Rashad Bilal and educator Troy Millings. Launched in January 2019, the show has so far had more than five million downloads.
Bilal and Millings have been friends for more than 25 years, and their podcast provides listeners with behind-the-scenes financial knowledge across entertainment and sports industries, highlighting entrepreneurs’ backstories, breaking down business models, and examining the latest trends in finance. The podcast blends insights from a typical college class with current trends and gives listeners a different and fresher look into the business world.
"Earn Your Leisure is a college business class mixed with pop culture, offering listeners a unique perspective into the work of business and finance,” said Bilal and Millings in a joint statement. “We pride ourselves on being a transparent business outlet, discussing complex topics broken down so that the average listener can comprehend.”
Radio personality Charlamagne Tha God launched the Black Effect Podcast Network with iHeartMedia last September. The multi-genre venture will feature a roster of marquee talent and culture-shifting voices committed to enlightening, educating and entertaining audiences, curated by the radio host. That includes the on-demand version of Charlamagne’s syndicated morning radio show, “The Breakfast Club,” from flagship hip-hop/R&B “Power 105.1” WWPR-FM.
“We are proud to be a part of a network that shares our belief and vision of empowering the next generation of leaders in the world of business," said Bilal and Millings. “We are extremely excited to be joining The Black Effect Podcast Network, where the voices of our community can be authentically heard from a range of different leaders.”
