The Dribble N’ Dimes podcast explores the stories and journeys of New York area basketball. Hosts Manny “Digital” and Emilio “the Poet” engage guests and have the conversations that highlight those special moments that have helped create and shape the basketball culture of the tri-state area.
Why Dribble N’ Dimes?
The brand of hoops played in the NY metro area is special! It’s full of big stories and larger than life figures that have helped shape the sport globally. Gaining reliable access to these important stories is inconsistent and oftentimes hearsay… so we felt a need to focus squarely on capturing, curating and distributing them directly from the voices of those who lived these experiences.
A career digital advertising executive, Manny has helped some of the most successful companies in ad tech make BANK! A product of the Bronx, NY, Manny has been a hoops head all his life. While a student at St. Raymond H.S. he was spoiled by the top basketball talent all around him. This experience elevated his fanaticism for the game and ultimately fueled the vision to develop and produce the Dribble N’ Dimes podcast. Manny is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts @ Amherst (don’t get it twisted… the REAL ZooMass) and a father of 3 wonderful kids.
When not working on Dribble N’ Dimes you can catch Manny as 1/3rd of the Father Hoods podcast (alongside his partners KGB and the Drink Champs’ very own DJ EFN), where they invite people from all over Hip Hop culture to talk about their experiences through fatherhood.
Is a Poet (and ya’ know it), author and actor. An entertainer at heart, Emilio has taken his talents to stages like the legendary Apollo theatre and beyond. You can find him lacing your local businesses and other fly services with custom promotional poems to make brand pop!
Also a graduate of St. Raymond H.S. he too caught the basketball bug in the worst way from seeing so much high quality basketball at the Raven’s nest.
