Dave Souri and Steve Komoll, the founders of Too Turnt Upparel, join the Discussion in this episode. Too Turnt is a collective with the following mission: “Team up with local Artists, Vendors, Businesses, and Communities to raise awareness of serious social issues while having a little bit of fun with it.”
The pair, based out of Chicago, are also the founders of the Fuck Dope statement brand. A clothing line aimed at Opening the Discussion on drugs. Dave reached out to me a few months back and I was really impressed by the work he was doing. His collective works directly with Tim Ryan, A & Es Hope Dealer, with all the profits from their Fuck Dope line going to his organization, A Man In Recovery.
What We Discuss with Steve & Dave in the episode:
- Dave and Steve explain their start to a clothing line and how, coincidentally, recovery evolved into an important part of their message.
- How their relationship with Tim Ryan has shaped their give back initiative.
- How the death of their close friend to overdose opened their eyes and motivated them to want to take a stand
- Dave shares his drug education growing up and shares his thoughts on the potential shortcomings of the drug education currently in place
