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.

Aug 7, 2020

Have you ever been hangry? We start the Check-In with L.O. retelling his latest experience with Grubhub/Seamless who clearly has him confused with someone who goes for the okie doke by offering him 50% off for food that was never delivered. Rick talks his standoff with a litterbug neighbor who thought it was ok to dump trash in front of his house.  Vin rants about the homeless problem in the subway system and the feckless mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio. Mack wraps up the segment with his talks of COVID-19 fears in his neighborhood and how no one is taking the mandated health precautions seriously in the Bronx.

In the next segment, we discuss our personal wellness plans and how we are maintaining our physical and mental health throughout the pandemic. We all know that it's time to push away from the comfort foods and start eating better and exercising. It's also important to seek a mental health profession to keep us grounded and discuss how this affects our minds. 

Lastly, we discuss the Breonna Taylor case and it's connection to a gentrification program named the Vision Russell plan. The relationship between the Mayor’s office, the city planning and police department are raising some serious questions of impropriety that may be having a direct impact on the delayed justice so many seek for Breonna. 

Let's all continue to put pressure on the following people and offices to see that justice is delivered for Breonna and her family.

You can also support the campaign to fight for Breonna by signing the petition on the Fight for Breonna website.
