Earth is Ghetto AF | Ep. 143

Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40! Thanks to Wichita, Kansas for showing us love in streams last week. This week’s starts with the latest installment of Where in the World is Alaric? as he checks in from Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where he’s been working on his latest project. L.O. talks about how ghetto earth has become with the subway shooters, crazy Caucasians, and homicidal homeless people, he’s has had enough with the outside. Vin finishes his first audible book project as the narrator for Thread That Binds and signs up for some unsolicited back pains after doing some much-needed yard work.

Next, we discuss Wells Fargo and its dubious hiring practices that have recently been revealed to have a bias against Black candidates. After being a part of the mortgage crisis and losing a legal battle about prejudicial hiring practices Wells has doubled down by holding fake interviews for its Black applicants. It seems like this bank loves our money just as long as we’re not handling it.

This and so much more on this latest episode of Decoding40.

No Happy Endings | Ep 142

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.

Nigcels Gone Wild | Ep 141

Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40! As this episode drops on the eve of what would be the Notorious B.I.G.’s 50th birthday, we give, thanks to Brooklyn, NY for showing us love and having the best increase in streams last week. This week, Alaric gives his wife the greatest gift, a Mother’s Day–without kids. Vin buys an espresso machine that wasn’t quite up to his standards and it looks like Amazon pulled a Wish.com. L.O. has another run-in with Seamless when a late-night burger order turns into a battle with customer service.

Next, we discuss Kevin Samuels untimely and how even after the announcement of his death he still remains a polarizing figure. We witnessed some women rejoice, some men shed tears and most of us just moved on with our lives. But, we do take some time to discuss the fallout of his philosophies on women, men, and their relationships. We then discuss the leaked Supreme Court brief that looks to overturn Roe v Wade and the overall archaic thinking associated with this pending decision should it be released.

Lastly, in the latest installment of What’s the Scenario the guys discuss a spouse who was found out to have been maintaining a secret bank account in the event she and her husband were ever to be divorced. Should spouses be able to keep private accounts to protect them in the event of a marriage dissolving?

FTP, Respectfully | Ep 140

Welcome back to another episode of Decoding 40! And, thanks to Atlanta for having the greatest increase in streams over the last couple of weeks. This week, Alaric finds himself in the throes of a fierce game of Old Maid with his daughter, while balancing with work. Leon reviews his latest Apple TV addiction Severance. He also thinks he might have a touch of carpal tunnel syndrome to boot. Vin has a movie shoot on his block and takes on the old man role by complaining about the lack of parking spaces along with the general nuisance of the whole situation.

In This Week in Racism, we discuss the situation in Syracuse, NY, where an 8-year-old Black child was arrested and treated horribly by the police for allegedly stealing a bag of chips. It’s a heated discussion as the guys discuss the impropriety of the police and what could have prevented this citation. Lastly, we discuss student loans and what, if anything, the Democrats aren’t doing, to offer relief to borrowers saddled with this debt.

Every once and a while the crew just has one of those Check-Ins that turns into a heart-to-heart amongst friends. This is one of those times. As men, it’s important to learn from one another and feel open enough to have these types of conversations.

These conversations allow us to learn from each of our triumphs and mistakes, so we can become better men and fathers.
