Decoding 40


Decoding 40, the podcast where we fearlessly and ferociously explore, debate and laugh at the complex inner workings, issues and thinking of today’s grown a** black men.

Jul 12, 2019

This week's episode starts off with a song from L.O. and a reenactment of the calls that we all miss or avoid from LIFE!

We start off with a discussion about dealing with contractors and their ability to capitalize on our fears and ignorance when it comes to home repairs.  Alaric tells us about his recent run-in with lead abatement and shady contractor practices.  

This leads us into the astronomical cost of health coverage in this country and how one trip to the hospital can change your financial life.  And, speaking of changes, we then talk about the growing trend of couples deciding to blend their last name when getting married versus the traditional practice of wives taking on their husband's last name. Is it a time-honored tradition or an archaic idea?

We round out the show with the Black man that America loves to hate O.J. Simpson who has recently plunged into social media by recently joining Twitter. We also discuss reparations.  Will Black people ever get them?  If so, in what form should they be handed down.
