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.

Feb 14, 2020

The guys start off acknowledging the amazingly mild winter that New York has been experiencing thanks to climate change.  And, L.O thinks that he may have something to do with the temperate weather. The guys also talk about the “Gay Slave” skit in Ep. 41 “Heeeeyyyy Massa!!!!” and wonder if they went too far and how some of their friends have responded.

Is there really a gay agenda that is threatening the image of straight Black men in Hollywood? Or, are we just seeing a more inclusive representation of characters in storytelling? The guys also discuss the influence of the media and the normalization of alternative lifestyles. The talk then turns personal as Vin shares his personal experience as a father of a young girl exploring her identity.

This Week’s Libation is Pinhook and the crew gives its review of this Kentucky rye.
