The Justin Odisho Podcast #17: The BRTHR Interview (Alex Lee & Kyle Wightman)

In this episode of the podcast, I had the opportunity to sit down for a conversation with two of my favorite video creators Alex Lee & Kyle Wightman aka BRTHR. Together they have worked with some of the biggest names in the industry such as The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Adidas & many more. As a duo, their videos mix a blend of retro and futuristic elements pulling from Japan to New York to create an electric visual style all their own. Enjoy!
