Colostomy Bag Boogie | Episode 106

The Check-In starts off with an uneventful week for Mack. Somehow, the conversation takes a left turn we end up talking about colostomy bags.  L.O. heads out to Fire Island to visit his sons at camp and has a close encounter with a deer. Vin is getting ready for his colonoscopy, something every man dreads but is totally necessary over the age of 45.  Rick shares another installment of Trash Wars: Flatbush Addition.  Apparently one of his neighbors is allowing their dog to relieve themselves in front of his house and this time it’s on camera. 

We discuss the case out of Biscayne Bay Park involving Chief Raimundo Atesiano who received three years in prison for violating the civil rights of two young Black men. The guys also talk about the bill passed by the Texas Senate that seeks to erase the atrocities from this country’s history.

Nobody Beats the Biz | Episode 105

Rick starts this week’s check-in by wishing his wife a happy birthday!  Vin is at work and its business as usual.  L.O. drops his kids off for sleepaway camp, but nothing is ever easy when he takes an Uber.  Mack spends time with his brothers and surprises his wife with a brand new appliance. 

This week we take time to remember the legendary hip hop pioneer, Biz Markie, who succumbed to his health issues on July 16, 2021.  Biz represented our culture to the fullest and was an intrical part of our teenage years. We all grew up on his music and this one along with so many of the artists we’ve lost, particularly in the last month, hit the crew hard.  #RIPBiz. 

We also talk about thoughts of infidelity in a marriage. What happens when your wife is thinking about cheating, but she doesn’t know how to tell you? What should she do? The guys have some surprising thoughts.

Delta Variant Express | Episode 104

Leon’s son start summer camp which can only mean one thing in the Cauthen household.  Que up the slow music and light some candles.  Vin has a grateful week off and takes a trip to the range with Rick.  As the world open back up more and more Rick finds himself back to work.  His most recent job trip finds him in the middle of Virginia where thankfully everyone was on their best behavior.  Lastly Mack shares his tale of his flooded parking garage.  Recently NYC was hit with some serious flash flooding and unfortunately Mack’s car was a victim.   Looks like a new car is in his future.

Next we discuss Sha’Carri Richardson and whether or not her suspension was based on racism or just a punishment dulled out by the governing bodies for breaking the rules. The crew ways in on this, the cancelation of Lovecraft Country and its correlation to the movement to suppress Critical Race Theory and positive imagery of Black and Brown people in America.

The Clarence Thomas Strain | Episode 103

In this week’s episode, Vin starts the check-in this week celebrating his 16th wedding anniversary. He and his wife take a trip to the city to enjoy some Korean BBQ and drinks. Leon has a run-in with a junior Karen while at his Godsons memorial. Apparently, there’s no chill when it comes to a know-it-all Nancy. Rick celebrated his 8th wedding anniversary with a much-needed staycation at the Standard Hotel in the city. Nothing like two days of no kids and doing absolutely NOTHING! Mack finishes off the check-in acknowledging his baby girl’s six-month milestone, which means it’s time for his wife to head back to the office. Luckily, he’ll have the help of his in-laws with childcare.

Next, we discuss Clarence Thomas and his not-so-conservative viewpoint of this country’s outdated marijuana prohibition laws. This segues into a discussion on the conservative views of the Supreme Court and how they are influenced by the political climate. Lastly, we finish up the show with a controversial conversation on stop and frisk policy and how the front runner in the NYC mayoral race favors the controversial and unconstitutional policy.

100 | Episode 100

This is the 100th episode! 

The podcast has gone through several evolutions including the format, personnel, and of course the locations in which it’s recorded. It started in the small hot box studio in a WeWork, then the guys eventually began recording at Gotham Podcast Studios. And, today, due to the pandemic, they are recording from their homes. But, the show has only gotten better over time.

In this episode, the guys celebrate this milestone by strolling down memory lane and talking about the ups and downs of producing a talk show with your friends.  We want to thank everyone who has had a hand in getting the show to this point. You all are appreciated and we look forward to bringing you more great content as we explore life from the perspective of four Black men enjoying life after 40.

This episode of Decoding 40 is packed with laughs, behind the scenes audio, and so much more.

Allegedly! | Episode 99

After a little over a year in the making, L discusses his new business venture olive oil infused with CBD called DRZL.  Alaric joins us from L.A. but his Apple laptop seems to have a worm in it.  Meanwhile, Vin is having a pretty uneventful week except for refinancing his home. Lastly, Mack is listening to the universe to learn patience and acceptance. 

Are we living in the “upside down”? Left is right. Right is left. Wrong is right. Football players, basketball players, and YouTubers are now boxing professional boxers, celebrities are running for office and national political parties have amped up the fighting within their own ranks. Everything is completely out of whack!
