Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40. This week we thank our friends in Singapore for tuning in with the greatest number of streams this week! For this week’s Check-In, Vin celebrates his wife’s birthday with some less than stellar edibles but makes up for it by gifting her a massage package at a nearby spa. Alaric comes close to losing his cool at the local CVS. They make him wait an hour, all to tell him they didn’t have what he needed. Self-checkout comes to Harlem’s Whole Foods much to L.O.’s delight, but will he finds himself on an episode of Curb your Enthusiasm when a clerk can only handle one person at a time?
Next, we discuss the mass shooting that occurred in Buffalo, New York, at a Tops Friendly Markets store in the predominantly Black, East Side neighborhood. Ten black people were killed and three other people were injured by a radicalized 18-year-old white supremacist. In between recording and releasing this show, tragically, an 18-year-old resident of Uvalde, Texas, fatally shot 19 students and two teachers and wounded 17 others at Robb Elementary School. The killer, a student at a nearby high school, earlier that day shot his grandmother in the face after an argument, killing her as well. We support every community and everyone affected personally by these violent attacks, we also recognize that it is time for action and it’s time to hold politicians, city officials, and silent moderates accountable for change to keep our fellow citizens safer.
