Detroit is Different Podcast with Phillip Cooley

I welcomed guest Phillip Cooley on the Detroit is Different podcast. Cooley is the owner of Slows Bar B Q, and a staunch Detroit advocate. Phillip’s story was very intriguing. We share a blind faith, and tireless love for the city.

We discussed his move to Detroit 12 years ago from Chicago. He didn’t find work here for months, but found creativity. Cooley’s travels across the world as a male model has put him in many places, but he’s felt, thought, and believed Detroit is his best home. Cooley’s visions for his artistic, business, and social purpose have been inspired by Detroit. – A house party he had when he first moved here sparked a jam session of hip-hop emcees, jazz saxophonist, key players (on his Mother’s piano), and him on guitar. That moment has committed him to Detroit since.

In the interview we cover his love for Prince, family, and developing business with a social/ community/ and creative mission. Listen in and listen up to this episode of the Detroit is Different Podcast!
