Pepper DeVaughn is a personal injury lawyer with a passion for people. Pepper’s Grandmother told him when he was a little kid, “everyone has a story.” Those four words stuck with Pepper and became the central theme of the way he lives his life. Pepper is now sharing the stories of Oklahoman’s through his podcast, “Pepper’s Podcast.”
Pepper is the person who wants to know how everything works, and why things are done the way they are. He loves restaurants and 99% of the time will end up in the kitchen asking who is who and what they do and how they make the magic happen. That is what makes Pepper’s podcasts unique; they bring his audience ‘into the kitchen’, and they pull back the curtain on the people who make up the Great State of Oklahoma. He’ll be happy to introduce you to Oklahomanians from all walks of life.
