Finding Arizona is a weekly podcast that interviews local business owners. We strive to find out what the owners’ passions are and interesting tid-bits that people don't know about them. The idea is to organically have a conversation with a friend, so the audience can hear everything from the owner’s point of view. We hope the podcast is able to form and gain more fans and followers, and start a community of passionate supporters and entrepreneurs. We love everything about the people who make up the diverse area of Arizona, and we want the people to help make this podcast live and strive.


Our Story

It all started with Jose's natural curiosity. In 2015, he wandered into a screen printing shop in Tempe, AZ and began a natural networking session around screens, inks and hot fans. This casual "off air" conversation about entrepreneurs and their start inspired Jose to find a passion to share this with the world. 

Two microphones and a Zoom recorder later the red recoding button was being pushed in MMA rings, workshops, craft rooms, and store fronts. Not long after a few episodes, while working in a shared creative space, Jose met Brittany and the two began exchanging professional contacts and visionary projects immediately. 

A strong suave host and a shy skilled photographer married their talents to create the weekly Finding Arizona Podcast. Together they strive to bring brilliant business owners in the state as well as contribute to philanthropic projects, attend social business events, and showcase ultramodern projects habitually.
