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.

We're still under lock down with Covid-19. 

Alaric shares how his children are fairing through all of this and like most parents we're just trying to maintain a sane household. L's maintaining and paying it forward by teaching a class on how to start a podcast. Vin is still essential, and shares a story of how even on Xbox not only is racism alive but even with over 100k dead there are still non-believers when it comes to Covid-19. Mack shares his stories about how some of his white clients and counterparts have checked in with him to see how he's doing. This leads to a frank and honest discussion on how we answer wellness checks from our white colleagues and friends. We also discuss the concept of white fragility and the circumstances under which white people wield their privilege to punish Black and Brown people they come in contact with. This leads into the now infamous story involving Amy Cooper, a white woman who called the police on Christian Cooper in New York City’s Central Park after he asked her to put her dog on a leash according to the park’s rules.
