When asked how the name PodBrother was born, Kimbrough had this to say:

When asked about how was PodBrother nation born Kimbrough replied:

“Jon Lovitz self proclaimed himself as the “Podfather” and when the Host/MC introduced me at my first live podcast show at the Jon Lovitz Podcast Theater in Universal City Walk as “Podcast Kimbrough”. A drunk fan came up to me after the show and complimented me on how much he enjoyed my “PodBrother Show”. I loved it and I have been the PodBrother ever since.”

PodBrother Nation

“PodBrother Nation was born from the joy and passion that comes from producing my own podcast. Over the years many people have enjoyed being on my show and more and more people were starting to launch their own podcast and started asking me for help. At that point, I found it necessary to launch “PodBrother Nation Studios” to help people produce their podcasts and “PodBrother Nation Network” to have a distribution platform for our podcasts.”

a. It is widely known that Erin Case and Klea Galasso are best friends. Erin Case was brought as a director of several programs in 2016 (I believe). 

b. Erin Case & Klea Galasso are best friends.

c. This was told to me by Klea Galasso herself when I was instructed to employee Erin Case’s daughter in my program. I was also told by Galasso that the girl is very pretty and I should be mindful to keep clients away from her. I had a conversation with Carol Lockwood and Carlos Perez afterward to express my discontent with Case’s daughter and her performance and both said it was best to stay quiet about because “Klea and Erin have been tight for years.”

/21/22: In a phone conversation, I expressed my dismay to Klea Galasso that my program was being held to a higher standard than the other housing programs (FC and TYH) regarding finances and productivity. I pointed out to her that Carlos Perez (FC) and Carol Lockwood (TYH) use many of the same vendors and their staff report that they in fact spend more than my program. I was told to focus on my own program. I presented a money-saving proposal to Klea in the hopes I could get a reprieve from the harassment. In this document, I showed how THP+ is being directed to put more money to the youth than what is contractually necessary to San Diego County standards. Galasso told me this is how she and Michael Bruich (Executive Director) wants it and that I am going to have to figure it out. Isubmitted numerous cost-cutting solutions and they were all rebuffed.

b. This was continued hostile work environment from Galasso because I refused to meet with the female client
