Jerome, along with his brother Jarrett, have been "making stuff" together since they were kids. Growing up in Missouri City, TX in a family with four brothers, they found connection in storytelling from a young age. When they were kids, their father would tell them stories – really good stories.

They talk about their childhood growing up in Texas, becoming illustrators and authors, their humor and graphic novel-style illustrations, their active imaginations, and their picture book sensibilities.

John L. Hanson is the producer and host of the nationally syndicated radio series In Black America. It’s heard on home station KUT at 10 p.m. Tuesdays and 6:30 a.m. Sundays — and weekly on close to 20 stations across the country. The weekly podcast of IBA, the only nationally broadcast Black-oriented public affairs radio program, is one of KUT’s most popular podcasts.
