Who We Are...

Voice from the Underground (aka VFU) is a weekly show where we talk about something important, such as social & race issues, politics & religion. & even everyday family issues.
Then we talk about something fun, such as sports, comics, movies & gaming. We're huge fans of the Marvel and DC films, Game of Thrones and more, so we find a way to work in these topics and marry them to the important message we deliver.
Basically, we talk about what we want.... because, after all, it's our DAMN show! 
Come on down to the Underground & make it YOUR show too!!

If you would like to contact us, invite us to your network, or submit an application to be a guest on the show, just visit the "CONTACT VFU" link at the top of the page!  We always... ALWAYS reply!!

Jasen Dutch, the show's producer, is a big Cubs & Blackhawks fan, has degrees in organizational development and religious studies & is a bit opinionated. A staunch political moderate and avid poker player,Dutch lives in the Central Valley of California.

These 3 outspokenmotorcycle enthusiasts come together from 3 different time zones to talk about all the craziness going on in the world around us & try to make a little sense out of the nonsense.... We are the podcast where politics and pop-culture collide!
