#48 Ye on Drink Champs, Travis Scott's Astroworld Hell on Earth
In this episode I give my reactions to Ye's appearance on Drink Champs and some things I found funny and interesting. I talk about what he said about his wife (still allegedly) and about some of the contradictions that make him appears crazy or narcissistic. I still think it's entertaining or funny to say the least, but it could be dangerous also... again interesting lol. Almost like you have to take out the weeds and find the gems in there somewhere. Then it leads into his bro-in-law, Travis Scott and the disaster of Astroworld. What's really going down on these concerts with all the demonic references?

#47 Build Back Better, A Paradigm Shift in Politics, Joe Biden, FDR and The New Deal
In this episode, my friend Jaime assists me with talking politics! Currently there is a problem with getting this reconciliation bill passed because of some left wing ideals that are carried in it. A whole lot of money we are talking about here. Where is the funds going to come from is the debate and only 2 US Senators seemed to be the hold. They don't exactly agreed on some of the ideals nor the amount of where the funding is gonna come from and it might have Biden's Presidency hanging in the balance. Non the less, there is obvious a new wind in the democratic party, what does this shift mean for America?

#46 Jon Gruden's Emails and The NFL Culture
In this episode, I invite my sports group commissioner, Olajuwon Randolph, to talk about Jon Gruden's emails recently uncovered. Jon Gruden had a lot to say and every bigotry you could think of was in those emails. OJ and I talk about it and go deeper into the story of how these emails were uncovered and why did this story come out the way it did? Why was there not report found on the initial investigation of The Washington Team? We talk about the toxic culture of the former "Redskins" team and the overall culture the NFL has always had, but is good at hiding.

#45 The Dave Outrage ft Lyricology 101 & Mark Flores
In this episode, my friends Andre and Mark return back to the show and provide comedic context to the Dave Chappelle outrage. Was the backlash warranted? At what point does comedy cross the line? We discuss both perspectives, the what if's and the why's. What is it about Dave Chappelle that allows him to be the only one to take on this subject? If you haven't subscribed to the deep end, please do! Thank you for the sub!

#44 Catching Up With Jacob
In this episode, I invite my long time friend Jacob Ramos onto the podcast. Jacob and I were good buddies back in the day in our earlier 20s. We lost contact for almost 10 years and today was the first day we caught up. It was like we just picked up from where we left off. We talk about old church days, we talk about pretty much old memories and things going on today as well as conspiracies.

#43 The End of Trump, The New Market and What Happened to Robin Williams
In this episode, I invite my longtime friend Mark Flores on the show. This was a more casual laid back episode where we just recap the political sphere we were all in in the past 4 years. My last episode was basically a finale of the Trump presidency and we discuss what's changed in 2021? Things are starting to come back to normal, but rest assured, 2020 was definitely a playbook for something in the future to come. We talk politics, social media, the market, and business- how have these things change slightly, but enough to change course in a huge way? Lastly, we discuss an icon I've always wanted to talk about, Robin Williams, and the conspiracies that surrounded his death. What really happened to Robin Williams?

#42 The Ballot or Bullet?
I wanted to discuss my synopsis on Trump's exit and why it wasn't only his failures alone, but Biden's successes that met the moment. There was much holding of breath with Biden, but somehow he overcame his own cringiness which is a testament on its own. With the storming of the capitol, what do we make of this? What are the links and ties between this event and our troubled history? How does architecture play a role with the meaning of "Heritage"? Ironically, it was social media that helped get Trump into office and now all social media has abandoned him, but why now? We look at social media and ask why when it is convenient? and was it too late? To tie this all together, we examine the life of Malcolm X. Why did Intelligence agencies want him out or killed? Why Malcolm X was necessary for those times and still relevant for today? How was his strategy ever so evolving?

#41 Where Are You Deep End?
With so much going on in the world between storming the capitol and the market scandal, I've finally dropped a new episode catching up on how I've been and what I've been up to since the last drop. This one is more personal and I reflect on what really matters in all this? Because todays news is gone tomorrow. We are so fixed on the next story... the next headline... the next sensation... the next loss ....that we don't feel anything anymore, we lost touch of reality and traded it for the matrix. We poured so much into it, that social media itself now has the power to cancel us. So that is why I say it is important to find your voice in the wilderness... to be original... to be real and to be you. Because nothing can replace that -We all have a deep end in us.

#40 It's a WAP
Why were tensions high in Portland? How does a peaceful protest turn into a potential street war? Relations couldn't be more strained with China and we've found ourselves in another cold war. Amid many things unraveling, one of the smaller issues surround the closure of the Chinese Consulate in Houston. China has retaliated and forced U.S. to close its consulate as well... except thats our nearest post to Tibet, but why is this small isolate state so important to us? And how could the Dalai Lama cause a global controversy? Cardi and Megan released a new music video for WAP and it's received a lot of criticism for it's raunchy lyrics, but how have Cardi and Meg fooled us? This month, Fortnite and Apple started beefing. No other developer has dared to defy Apple’s app store. How can this change the future of the App market? With everything spiraling the way it has, investors are investing in something they wish they didn't have to, but COVID19 isn’t all to blame so how have we allowed this to happen? We take a look at Qanon and why all the left leaning elites been accused of pedophilia? Do these claims have any merit? The answers might surprise us.

#39 It's All One Big Entanglement
In this episode, I talk about Dr. Fauci and the role he's played in Corona Virus Pandemic. From the outset, he was front and center in the televised WH briefings, but lately, he seems to be more and more excluded from national televised networks and I ask the question, why is that? In many ways, the murder of George Floyd in culminated everything BLM protesters have been speaking about. Why Colin Kaepernick took a knee.... And there was an outpouring of support for BLM unlike we've seen yet. Activists took to the streets, despite social distancing, just to show their support and the movement appeared to be bigger than the organization itself at its core. So what is the difference between BLM the organization and Black Lives Matter the movement? And how can both sides of the isle move forward? You might have caught wind of the word entanglement lol. Such a minuscule thing right now among other important things we can be talking about, but yet, we are so intrigued with what type of relationship Will and Jada have where Will gives his blessings for another dude to lay with his wife? Lol. Also, Twitter was infiltrated by bitcoin scammers who took over high profile public figures and they're merely just kids. How did this young 20 yr old just exploit a national security risk? Then we talk about our economies bounce back shape. It's not a V... it's not a U or a W........ it's a K... what can our gov't focus on to help bring back the falling. Lastly..... we take a deep dive into one of sickest pedophilia scandals out there.... Pizzagate. How pizza and pedophiles are connected and where did this all begin?

#38 A Close Call
There has been a lot of people going through it this year and right now, we are still mid-pandemic. I myself had some health scares that had me rethink about my life and changed my perspective on things. I guess you could say it was kind of a close call. In this episode, I talk about a real incident that happened to me this year and how it put me at risk of losing my life. The good news is I'm here now and I'm able to talk about it. Hopefully it helps anyone who might be facing these types of scares today. My message to you is stay strong!

#8 It Will All Be Different Now
On this episode of Come Sit With Us, Mark opens up the show by sharing what he truly misses during this era of quarantine. I ask if Mark is willing to get vaccinated? Mark is quick to answer, but does he say yes or no? This leads to the discussion of how many chances we give a new show before we get hooked or not? What shows were we hooked to these past decades and why?We realize that there are many podcasts talking about shows they watch right now, we are talking about game changing shows in our lifetime and what made them so special. This episode is full of details about the shows that they mention so you do not want to miss this episode of Come Sit With Us!

#37 The Man in The Bottle FT Cory McCormick
In this episode, I invite my good friend Cory McCormick onto the show! Cory has been immersed into music his whole life from skating to his favorite jams on the radio to doing freelance work for bands and mastering their albums to perfection. Cory is not a one trick pony though, he is a musician and song writer at heart. He has written and composed, "And Other Hearsay" in 2018 and plans to drop another album called, "Inner Space", once everything returns back normal due to the Corona Virus. I ask Cory if during this quarantine he's been able to watch Tiger King? haha.... And his reaction is pretty funny! One of the reasons I asked Cory onto the show is because I wanted to know the idea behind the band name, "The Man in The Bottle"? So Cory shares an interesting fact about the name and what meaning it has become to him. Come to find out, Cory works at EastWest Studios, so the Grammys are like the Super Bowl, but Cory offers an opinion that might be controversial (Billie Eilish's name is mentioned lol) even as it may very well make a lot of sense haha. I believe that Cory's journey is very relatable to the songwriter, musician, and creative in us all. There are times we have writers block, times we feel drowned out by the music or need to soul search to identify how to move forward. It's not the same thing for everybody, but Cory offers a unique perspective to the music and human element of it all.

#36 Owning Your Music FT Monica Lopez
In this episode, I invite Monica Lopez onto the show! Monica has always been a very creative person. She specializes in Video/Media and photography, but what separates Monica from the rest is that she knows how to piece things together to create inspiring stories. It hasn't always been an easy road though. Monica has had to journey down a long path to discover her own identity in the world. She faced many challenges with being a single woman and living in a foreign county trying to make it in a field that is mostly male dominated and still finds that she has to prove herself constantly even till this day. After becoming a Video/Media Director and having a family of her own, Monica finds a new outlet to express her love for thrifting and collecting vinyl with her family. She opens up about how cool the vinyl community has been and how music has always been a common thread in her life. Plus, Monica tells us why she thinks more people should treasure their music hunting experience and have a personal collection of their own rather than being so dependent on just streaming services, especially during this quarantine.

#6 L is For a Lesson, Not a Loss
In this episode, Mark and I talk about how we're doing at this point during our quarantine. Mark asks what I've learned while having more guests? Perhaps, Mark may have a surprise guest to reveal himself? This leads Mark to talk about his childhood memories and how it was while we were kids. These were the last days before the internet. There was no smart phones, no wifi, no cloud service or social media, just hangin' out with the neighborhood kids playing outside. Mark thinks I was a Disney Channel kid, but No lol, I was Nickelodeon all day. This lead to us talking about our favorite childhood shows. Mark then remembers one game show on Nickelodeon he wished he could have been a guest on. He remembers why this show was different from the rest. Finally he reveals a special guest that he'll be having on next weeks show. Lastly Mark closes with one of the best comeback stories in the history of sports and talks about why the L stands for the Lesson, not the Loss.

#35 Change of Plans FT Edgar Castillo
In this episode, I invite my longtime friend, Edgar Castillo, onto the show! Edgar has always been a quiet dude, but he's never shy'd away from living it up. He currently works in the Airline industry and talks about how he got into his line of work. Castillo has went from traveling the world to having to stay home and quarantine like the rest of us. So I ask him to reminisce of his traveling experiences and to describe the tastes and sounds of what it's like to be out in the world again. Edgar has always been a big Futbol lover and he opens up about the energy at sporting events and how it was before the social gathering restrictions. Of course, the Rona has effected his job as well and he so talks about the changes that have taken place after the outbreak. There has been a change of plans for everyone this year, but Edgar helps us get a glimpse of the horizon again.

#5 Perception is Reality
In this episode of Come Sit With Us, Mark and I talk about our current situation within the quarantining process. Mark is still required to work while I hang in the balance until this pandemic passes. How much longer can we make do? Mark looks to an inspiration of his during these weary times. In the midst of all the fear mongering and consistent bad news, Mark proposes the question, "What is reality"? And this thought, leads him to an old childhood heel who's become a real life role model because he's always pushed forward in challenging times. Mark then talks about his favorite spooky 90's TV show that he's found on YouTube during the quarantine shutdown. A show that was so ghostly and sinister, but yet saved countless lives Lol. Lastly, Mark closes the show with a positive affirmation about perception and how we may use it to bring our life back into full focus. We invite you to Come Sit With Us.
