  • Whitmore said that principle comes from the hosts’ musical backgrounds — songs encourage vulnerability and trust among artists and audiences, he said. That’s been the idea since the podcast was first conceptualized in 2020.

  • But what separates Black Currency from other podcasts talking finance is that the hosts open up about their own past money mistakes, Ellyse said, which helps foster a deeper connection with listeners.

Ellyse is a published poet, spoken word artist and emcee who has been performing and recording music in the Madison and Milwaukee areas since 2001.
