WDET presents Ann Delisi’s Essential Conversations podcast. 

Hosted by Detroit storyteller Ann Delisi, this interview series recognizes the creative spirit of local and national celebrities. 

In each episode, Delisi sits down with local and nationally recognized professionals in the fields of music, news and the arts for insightful conversations exploring their work and inspiration.

In episode six, Delisi speaks with Denaun Porter, a producer and artist who has worked with everyone from Dr. Dre, to 50 Cent, Eminem to Royce Da 59. This impromptu interview chat took place in a restaurant, after a celebration of Jenny Risher’s photo book D-Cyphered, which highlighted Detroit’s hip hop community

I cannot express to you how many times,” explains Porter, “I’m influenced by life to create something. And I can’t get it out my head fast enough. Like, I might make six songs in a night, and only one of them is complete.”
