And guests have included Randy Webb, who is an entrepreneur and co-founder of Team Legacy Worldwide, a company that educates people about trading cryptocurrencies, as well as Dominic Johnson, managing director of Northwestern Mutual, a Milwaukee-based financial services firm. Previous Black Currency episodes have discussed predatory lending, stocks, money management, real estate and retirement planning.
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.

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.
“In multicultural business strategy, race and ethnicity is a big part of that,” Ellyse said. “Just knowing the huge wealth gap for Black people … how could we not talk about this stuff in a real way?”
