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.

Jul 31, 2020

The crew checks in to get the latest on each other’s lives.  Vin shares a subway story about a vandal. L.O. is still going through construction in his house and with every passing day they seem to find more things wrong. Mack has decided to get a life coach to help him organize his life. He's also decided to automate his home to make his life easier. Rick's getting back to work after months of the entertainment industry on pause because of the pandemic. 

The discussion then moves to man weaves. Increasingly, men of color are turning to cosmetic ways of dealing with hair loss. Some have gone as far as follicle replacement, but the man weave has started to become extremely popular. It's less invasive and seems to be taking years off men's age. The crew discusses it and weighs in on the new options available and discusses who in the crew would get one.

The final topic is all about Joe Biden and his impending pick for his running mate. The rumbling throughout the media seems to believe Biden will not only pick a Black woman. Would it be foolish for Biden to not ride the wave of the BLM movement and pick one of the more qualified Black women? Or, are the Democrats and white America going to rely on maintaining the status quo and the usual politricks and opt for a White woman as the presumptive vice-presidential pick?
