Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40. This week, Alaric is on the road again for another production project and is getting his fill of shrimp po’boy sandwiches with a side of fried pickles. Vin is still building his voiceover career while supplementing his income with ride-sharing adventures. L.O. meets with some bright minds of the future and gives his review on the series Them.
The guys talk about the decision of the New York governor and mayor to take a zero-tolerance policy on the vagrancy and homelessness that’s overrun the MTA due to the rash of violent incidents that have affected the system. The conversation also touches on reports that Mayor Adams’ new budget will see an increase in the NYPD budget while social services and education budgets will be dramatically slashed.
Next, in This Week in Racism, the guys talk about the recent viral video of two police officers violently breaking up a fight in a New Jersey mall. The officers quickly moved to restrain a Black teenager, while taking a strikingly passive approach to the other teenager who apparently appeared white to them. And, lastly, the guys talk about a recent story out of Salt Lake City, Utah where an apparent shootout occurred between the police and … a four year old?
You’ll hear this and so much more on the latest episode of Decoding40.
