Especially if you're part of the groups who are facing those extra hurdles. In such a short time span, we've seen way too many situations of people facing all those injustices and it isn't fair. During this pandemic, it seems like a no brainer that we should all be unified, right? Unfortunately, that is not the case. Listen in on this discussion where we discuss the recent horrifying murders of George Floyd, Ahumaud Arbery along with other examples of racism and police brutality, which ultimately led up to the group of protesters and looting that's occurring nationwide.

When life was "normal" it was easy for people to believe they were in a stable, healthy relationship. BUT being stuck in the house for this long with their S/O, revelations are being revealed, that what they thought they knew and loved couldn't be further from the truth. So many couples are faced with their reality during this quarantine such as the pushed aside, ignored problems that they've been dreading to speak on, in fear of igniting an argument. Listen in as Sho and Joe discuss ways couples can fix their problems despite the pandemic and the stress that surrounds us all. Hopefully, you or someone you know can apply these pointers in their relationship or maybe gather up the courage to drop whatever/whoever is causing you unhappiness.

Standing By Your Partner and More Holiday Season talk..
Episode 27 of J and S Talks: "Standing by your partner" is the main topic of tonight's discussion although we went down some rabbit holes (per usual) LOL. Many people invest in these "on-again, off-again" relationships, especially during this time of year because they don't want to spend the holiday season alone or should I say single. It's very unfortunate when people bind themselves to this mindset because they endure various stressors which eventually lead to heartache. So we speak on what it means to truly stand by your partner in a relationship and separate all the bullshit excuses that people come up with to cover for their sorry excuse of a bf/gf. Grab a big cup of hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows), get cozy and listen to this discussion so you can identify some of the things that may be harmful to yourself/relationship and chime in, by commenting your thoughts and feelings on this topic. THE TALK IS ON! As always, this podcast is brought to you by Show and Joe. Youtube Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPgH9jV1Yn8

The Holiday Season...
Episode 26 of J and S Talks: As we indulge in all the pleasures of the holiday season, it is crucial to remember the importance of what this season is all about. For some, its solely a religious meaning; for most, its about spending time and coming together with friends and family. Over these past 5 years, it seems as if social media has taken over and brainwashed 90% of society, even when it comes to this time of the year, which is extremely unfortunate. J and S touch upon various aspects of how we should keep our sanity intact and ways to keep our focus on the important things that relate to the holiday season. Join in and listen to our discussion, and then pass the message along by sharing our podcast! THE TALK IS ON! Youtube Video: https://youtu.be/dlUvCjQMeeo
