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.

Jun 26, 2020

Welcome to another episode in quarantine.  The curve is flattening in New York and New Jersey and the crew is keeping it safe. 

The crew starts off with the Check-In. Vin talks about his VinsDailyBread project where he showcases his love for cooking.  L.O. talks about his struggles with his Spectrum internet service. Now that homeschooling is coming to an end, Rick talks about what’s next for the summer. Mack has been laying low and like all of us, has been processing everything going on in the world from COVID-19 to racism.

This show also includes discussing the George Floyd case and the subsequent protest across the globe.  We also talk about accountability versus legacy.  Are Black artists who have committed egregious crimes or addicted to drugs at a greater risk of damaged legacies compared to their white counterparts? We introduce a new segment, F-ck Your Apology! This goes out to all of the white people called out for their racist and tone-deaf remarks who now wish to offer weak apologies in hopes of redemption.

This Week's Libations are a collection of several different whiskeys including Uncle Nearest and Woodford Reserve. Remember, whether or not you are in the middle of a pandemic--always drink responsibly.

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