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.

Oct 4, 2019

We start off discussing some of the cheapest and harshest drinks known to man. Walk with us down memory lane as we talk about our first drink in our first apartment.  From Georgi Vodka to Gerst beer and hand-weighed ounces of weed, we went the Frank Sinatra route and did it our way.

Alaric shares a story that involved him, a woman, a couple of 64 oz bottles of Olde English malt liquor and an exchange with a Honda Accord driver carrying a two-piece. Let's just say it didn't end well.  We change up the pace with another infamous L.O. subway story. Apparently, there is no shortage of crazy women on the train and even a baby can get told to S.T.F.U.  We all agree it's time for all of us to get back into the gym and maybe even get a group rate on a trainer. 

Next, we talk about the current scourge and alarming statistics of mass shootings. The first question is should mass shooting statistics include gang violence?  Depending on the intentions of the shooter, are these acts of violence, terroristic in nature or just crazy people with guns? 

And, in the latest installment of “This Week in Racism” we discuss the story of Jerri Kelly, a white woman from Arkansas, who pulled a gun on four teens who were fundraising for their football team.

You’ll hear all this and more in this Friday’s edition of Decoding 40. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook Instagram and  Patreon.
