EP. 9 | Sports & Pop Culture: Super Bowl + Royal Family + Waves

January 26, 2020

The fellas are back and catching up over the past two weeks. Mike informs John about his recent criticism from listeners. Hopefully Mike is going to share more of the feedback so the show can actually get better. Please share your thoughts in the comments section on the PodBean App and join the conversation with the fellas. A recent podcast on The Josh Wearing Podcast with Tony Stark, Jr. (author of the first Dear Josh letter) and Mike created an explosion of entertaining feedback. John has been traveling and was recently in ATL. He had an epiphany moment about his partying lifestyle. A story from John lead to a 2020 wave challenge between John and Mike. LeBron caused some controversy again as Mike continues to nit pick about his favorite team’s best player. Josh reminds everyone the regular season in the NBA at this moment in history is nothing more than scrimmages to prepare the contenders for the playoffs. Josh and Mike revisit their picks for Super Bowl contenders and we see who was actually correct with their predictions from an early show. The fellas give their opinion on the Royal family headlines. Josh doesn't understand the confusion. Mike points out girls will now have unrealistic expectations. What do you think about the situation? Leave your thoughts in the comments below and thank you for watching!

EP. 8 | Dating: Love Languages + Are Men Selfish Lovers?

EP. 8 | Dating: Love Languages + Are Men Selfish Lovers?

January 10, 2020

Mike John and Josh talk about the validity of Love Languages – a concept written about by Gary Chapman in the book The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate. Josh and John don’t really see the validity of these “Love Languages” beyond the pop culture indoctrination of following what is popular. Josh thinks each Love Language should be involved throughout the relationship instead of having one or two since people are multi-dimensional. Mike doesn’t want to have to read your mind and play the guessing game when it comes to Love Languages. Ladies – articulate your desires like adults! Mike’s Love Languages are Words of Affirmation and Quality Time. Josh sees how girls are the ones to initiate the topic of Love Languages with their spouse in a way that can finesse their man into creating the relationship they want regardless of what the man wants. What are you Love Languages? Young MA set the internet ablaze when she stated men are selfish lovers. Do you agree with Young MA? Josh agrees completely and says it’s better for men who know what they’re doing in bed as generous lovers. John confesses to being selfish at times, especially if he is tired from working. Mike and Josh talk about how important it is to talk about sex early in the courtship before you have sex. John believes women who have hubris when talking about their sexual talents are usually a huge let down. Mike makes a valid point that most guys are boosting their ego with a lack luster performance. Similar to how women do for men. Mike also points out with current female rappers that their lyrics encourage the younger generation of women to be selfish lovers. Have you noticed the same trend? DM us on Instagram to have your comments read out loud on the show.

EP. 7 | Pop Culture & Entertainment: Drake on Kanye + Kevin Hart + Movie Reviews

January 7, 2020

The fellas talk about Drake's new interview with Rap Radar in which he claims Kanye is jealous of his progress in Hip-Hop. Do you think Kanye is actually jealous of Drake? John believes Kanye is jealous because Drake has taken his crown. Mike thinks it is Kanye's own fault for losing the throne in Hip-Hop. What do you think? Mike gives a review about the Kevin Hart documentary and how The Shade Room just used a minute clip for the click bait sensationalism. Josh isn't surprised because it is The Shade Room's business model. John and Mike talk about how you must be perfect in society in order to be a celebrity. Do you think it is unfair to take previous comments out of context? It could be a violation of 5th Amendment Rights. Mike reviews the new Oscar worthy film Uncut Gems starring Adam Sandler, Kevin Garnett, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox and The Weeknd. What did you think of the movie? Would you see the movie based upon Mike's review? Mike also reviews the film Dark Waters starring Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway in Ruffalo's first film since playing The Hulk in the MCU.

EP. 7 | Dating: Sex in Relationships + Marry Your Best Friend + Plastic Surgery Feedback

EP. 7 | Dating: Sex in Relationships + Marry Your Best Friend + Plastic Surgery Feedback

January 4, 2020

Mike, John, Rasheed and Josh talk about building a friendship before pursuing a serious relationship. Rasheed thinks if your partner isn’t your best friend, you might as well stop wasting each other’s time. John thinks people rush into relationships without discussing the parameters. They just get carried away with the honeymoon phase. Mike believes guys can be in the friendzone and move into an actual relationship. Josh thinks going through the friendzone is not the best idea considering the #MeToo culture. However, he does agree your lifetime spouse should be your best friend as well as lover. Would you rather be in the friendzone before being with your lifelong spouse? Mike asks the fellas what they would do if their partner could not satisfy them in bed. Rasheed uses a wonderful metaphor to describe the situation. Josh believes patience is the solution as long as it isn’t taken for granted combined with an enthusiastic spirit to improve the situation. John is going to be patient up to a certain point, and then he would go separate ways. What would you do? What if she asks you to do something you’re not comfortable doing like actually putting something inside you? After a lot of controversial feedback, the fellas talk about cosmetic enhancements. Rasheed said he doesn’t need the plastic surgery to be attracted to someone. It is a lack of authenticity and to impress people she doesn’t even know. Not to mention, girls are doing it without securing the bag. John defends his stance that was criticize in the barbershop. Mike still doesn’t mind a little nipping and tucking here and there. How do you feel about cosmetic enhancements? Leave your feedback and have it read on the next show! Thank you for listening and Happy New Year!

EP. 7 | Intro: Kaepernick AF1 + LeBron Hate + NFL Playoffs + Millionaire Fastlane + Obama

EP. 6 | Pop Culture: Lizzo Antics + Rape Culture +  Hip-Hop News & Beef

EP. 6 | Pop Culture: Lizzo Antics + Rape Culture + Hip-Hop News & Beef

December 27, 2019

The fellas break down Lizzo’s recent antics at the Lakers game where she sported a t-shirt dress with the buttocks area cutout where she preceded to start twerking on the jumbo-tron. Do you think Lizzo is doing too much or is she being a trailblazer for young women who don’t want to be conventional? Josh thinks this further illustrates the double standard. Because if a man exposed himself in this way, he would be thrown in jail. The boys are anxious to talk about the very polarizing topic of rape culture in America. It seems as if men are instantly vilified whenever an accusation occurs without any facts, evidence and or context. And yet, women when engaging in sexual assault, are given much weaker penalties. In fact, even the false accusers of men receive very tame penalties compared to the people who had their rights violated from a false accuser defrauding the legal system. What do you think of this recent trend in society? Bill Cosby seems to be a martyr for the #MeToo movement along with Harvey Weinstein, while there are other people doing way worse and a lot of the testimonies all sound too similar. Mike, John and Josh share stories of vicarious #MeToo moments. Do you feel there is a double standard when it comes to sexual assault allegations? People are losing jobs and careers because it is a violation of their freedom. Diddy’s 50th Birthday celebration broke the internet. Especially when Jay-Z and Kanye seemed to put aside their beef for the occasion. Do you think they officially squashed the beef? Another public Hip-Hop beef was on display with Nick Cannon versus Eminem. Do you feel Nick using members of his Wild ‘N Out crew to help with the beef was whack or smart? Should Eminem even respond? Apparently 6ix9ine was finally sentenced and seems he will be released with a target on his back. How do you feel about this judgement?
