Q & A with Kenny from Kenny the Sports Guy Podcast
When did you start podcasting?
I started podcasting during the Covid-19 pandemic in May 2020.
I was laid off from the job I was in, so I decided to create my own podcast.
Growing up, I was a huge sports fan (still am) and one day I was thinking, wait a minute, if I can’t play any sports, maybe I can talk about them.
So that’s how Kenny The Sports Guy Podcast was born.
What made you think about starting a podcast?
I started podcasting because I felt like at the time there wasn’t a Latin podcaster who talked about sports.
I’m Dominican and Puerto Rican and I grew up in the South Bronx so we weren’t expected to do anything.
Many people believe that I am a sports enthusiast so I felt that podcasting was the only way to project my voice.
Growing up, I was a shy and very quiet person and podcasting helped me out of my shyness.
What is the name of your show and what is it about?
The name of my show is Kenny The Sports Guy Podcast and I talk about all things WWE, AEW, NBA, NFL, F1, and MLB.
It’s a weekly episodic episode where I talk about a certain topic in the world of sports.

My podcast setup consists of four things: A Rode Podmic Podcasting Microphone, a Zoom H8 Eight Track Handy Recorder, my office in my house, and Adobe Audition.
How have you promoted your podcast?
Social media. I use Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, etc although I can do a better job at marketing it. My weakness.
