Str8Up began as a TV talk show at Bossier Parish Community College. The show’s concept came from current host Calvin, Co-hosts Brandon & Lee and former director Courtney. The show allowed students to be “Str8Up” on a number of topics. Questions were asked by BPCC students and others in the surrounding area. After graduation, Str8Up was turned into a short web series with a similar format but involved those in the general public.
Now Str8Up is a podcast that deals with social issues that most want to talk about but won't hear about on mainstream media. Calvin, Brandon, and Lee grab guests from various communities to discuss these issues. There is only ONE rule on our show and that is you gotta be...Str8 Up.
