On this episode of The I-5 Corridor podcast, Tyson is joined by DeVon Pouncey.

DeVon works for Street Roots, does men’s basketball analysis for Portland State and Pacific University, hosts the Wake up and Win podcast and spins a little music on the side. He’s a grinder, whose media career in Portland began in 2017, just weeks out of college as a co-host on 750 AM – right around the time the Dino Costa Show barreled through town.

That train wreck makes for quite a story.

Plus: DeVon on former AAU teammate Gary Payton II’s rise with Golden State, the Dame generation getting skipped and how to carve out an independent niche in the media world.
