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 20, 2019

Join us for the first episode of a special two-part interview with our friend, the one and only, divinely-inspired Slink Johnson, the star of Adult Swim’s Black Jesus.  Slink joins us for a hilarious episode sharing his unadulterated, uncut brand of comedy. Slink gives us some insight on how he got started acting, how it feels to play Black Jesus, cultural icons he's smoked with and the meaning behind the #smokeyours movement.

We start off by catching up with the crew and finding how they spent their time off. L.O. goes to a wedding. Rick does best at recreating Daddy Day Care. Vins takes some mental days from work. And, Mack shares his Biggest Loser successes.

The distinction of #WhiskeyWarrioroftheWeek goes to friend of the show, Brian Adams, who introduced us to Oban 14 Year Single Malt Scotch. In all honesty, the segment starts off pretty rocky, but in the presence of Black Jesus, this may be the greatest redemption we have ever witnessed. The crew relearns a valuable lesson on how great things can and do come in small packages.

You’ll hear all this and more in this Friday’s edition of Decoding 40. If you are on social media be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and on Patreon.
