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.

Dec 13, 2019

The crew opens up with a few movie reviews for your consideration that include Martin Scorcese’s latest acclaimed film, The Irishman now playing on Netflix.  Mack also gives his quick take on the romantic drama, Queen and Slim, and his experience at a theater in the Hamptons. L.O. gives light on a new concept of anger that is pervasive among New Yorkers, especially, and many of our listeners are probably included in his sample pool for continued study. 

We discuss the use of pronouns based on one’s preference when not easily perceptible based on physical appearance. Next, we ask the question: how old is too old to have children? We then turn to politics, as Rick gives his hot take on Michael Bloomberg running for president and his late and clumsy apology concerning “Stop and Frisk”.  Having entered into the presidential race does Bloomberg have a chance or is he just another distraction. 

This Week's Libation is Sazarac Rye Whiskey.  It's a smooth full-body flavored whiskey that doesn't have the normal Rye bitter after taste.

We wrap up the show discussing Colin Kaepernick and the public workout he put on a few weeks ago.  We talk about the social and media impact that Colin’s display could have with all of the visuals that were at play.

You’ll hear all this and more in this Friday’s edition of Decoding 40. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook Instagram, and  Patreon.
