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.

Sep 4, 2020

The guys start with the weekly Check-In with Mack going back to the chiropractor and takes his car for a wash. Vin goes on an adventure to Mountain Creek Resort to there Treescape Park to engage in some “whipipo” activities. Rick rejoices now that he and the wife are finally baby-free in the bedroom!  L.O. rounds it out with another installment of this Ghetto House.

As we all know 2020 has been no stranger to tragedy and this past week we lost three more icons John Thompson, Cliff Robinson and the Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman.  We can all agree that the loss of Chadwick was a hard one to take.  He was a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood and a global symbol that brought millions of people joy and hope. 

Coach John Thompson and his legendary career at Georgetown helped shape so many young Black men.  Under his tutelage, players such as Patrick Ewing and Alan Iverson, and many other men evolved into professional athletes, businessmen, and cultural icons. And, Cliff Robinson, who succumbed to a yearlong battle with lymphoma at the age of 53 was a UConn basketball and NBA star. They all will be remembered!

In This Week In Racism, we discuss the scumbag, Kyle Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse is the 17-year old radicalized white male savage who traveled to Wisconsin, with his mother, armed with an AR-15, and killed two protestors and injured another.
