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!

Let Me Get A No. 10 Billion | Episode 97

L starts the episode talking about his new quilty pleasure on MTV called How Far is Tattoo Far;  Vin’s vacation is winding down and he and his wife and their dog enjoy a nature hike; Alaric and his wife have their first adult outing since the pandemic, and Mack is resolving some infrastructure problems at home in the midst of paying $45 in smoothies?!

Next, we discuss Byron Allen and his lawsuit filed against McDonald’s.  McDonald’s spends a measly $5M of their $1.6 billion advertising budget with Black media outlets. Meanwhile, the Black community contributes to 40% of their profits. Something is definitely fishy and it’s not those nasty fish filets.

Look At God! | Episode 94

Welcome to another episode of Decoding 40!

Spring is in full swing and Alaric’s regular gardener is too busy to take care of his garden.  He finds a replacement and finds some ancestral justice. Vin discusses his nature walk with Mike and Leon finding out the hard way how three miles can turn into six miles. L.O. discusses his perspective of the hike and his weird commute via the PATH to N.J.  Mack is trying to finalize his plans for his second wedding anniversary and his wife’s first Mother’s Day.

Next, we discuss the incredulous remarks by Senator Tim Scott, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Representative Jim Clyburn who all fell into the sunken place to suggest that America “is not a racist country.”  What does this mean for the struggle of Black Americans in the US? And, why have the Democrats once again decided to forfeit the high ground while bargaining the safety and livelihood of Black people? 

This and many more topics on this episode of Decoding40.

Lost Innocence | Episode 93

Welcome back to another episode of Decoding40.

We are all present and physically safe, but the ever-present threat of law enforcement and the subsequent PTSD that we all carry is weighing heavy on us all. The Check-In this week includes L watching Netflix and Verzuz to escape; Mack totally burying his head into his work; Alaric decided to take a harmless trip to the park with his family until he finds himself caught in the DMX funeral procession and an unfortunate incident occurs; and, Vin wraps it up with his recent discussion with his 13-year old daughter about her first interaction with the police.  

So, this week we talk about “The Talk” and how we each try to keep our kids safe when encountering law enforcement.  What used to be a standard conversation about how to be respectful and courteous when dealing with the police has morphed into a lesson of survival.

Better Call Kareem | Episode 91

Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40.

Mack starts off with his home shopping woes; Vin finally got his fence installed and a refund from Lowes; Leon received his first Covid vaccine shot; and, Alaric checks in with some sad news, his father-in-law succumbing to cancer after a long fight.

Since this is our 91st episode, we decided to talk about the significance of that number as it was the year we all pretty much started on our journey of adulthood.  The fellas reminisce on prom stories; going to college and all the other craziness of being young men at the start of the 90s.

Sh*tty Wages | Episode 90

This episode is was recorded before and released after the news of the untimely death of DMX was released. We are praying for all of his family, friends, and fans. Rest in Power brother!

Welcome to another episode of Decoding40. 

The Check-In starts with Alaric who received his first COVID shot without incident; Vin has one of the worst customer experiences with Lowes; Leon takes a much needed R&R trip to a serene and very white town in upstate New York; Mack is back to house hunting after the house he and his wife had in the contract did not fare well after the inspection. 

Next, we discuss one of the leading hotbed issues of a minimum wage increase which is currently being considered by the Biden administration.  What are the pros and cons of an increase and how it adversely affects millions of people living under the poverty line? The conversation gets heated with Mack being against the increase because of the effects on small businesses.
