S2: Ep. 6- Support Creatives
This episode is random, but necessary. Like any human being, you have thoughts and sometimes they stick with you, sometimes they don't. Lately, I have been thinking about the "American Dream" and how it was prescribed to us as a model of success. The model is broken. Financial freedom and independence is what we should be seeking. How can we be a part of changing the system? Independence. Buck the system and show love. Support art. Support creatives. IG/FB/Twitter: SIPmyTHOUGHTS Rate. Comment. Subscribe. Follow.

S2: EP. 5- Clarence E. Hill Jr.
Tomorrow is not promised, so for me, it's been important for me to give flowers to those who have impacted my life. Moving to Dallas in 2019, Clarence E. Hill Jr., was one of the men who deserves flowers. Most sports journalists are white, so imagine being able to cover the most profitable and recognizable brand in the Dallas Cowboys for more than 20 years as a black journalist. It's damn near unheard of. In the last few weeks and year, black male journalists have been dying at an alarming rate so knowing that tomorrow isn't promised, I wanted to get CHill on the pod. We discuss our media colleagues who have passed recently, how he's been able to keep his job for 20 years, favorite Cowboys of all-time and more.

S2: Ep. 3- Until You Do Right By Me ft. K. Doee, Marc J, LJ
As an ode to The Color Purple, establishments, specifically the NFL and everyday corporations minimalize the black voice. However, when scandal within the company, a black face usually materializes to save that company, or become its scapegoat. We discuss Colin Kaepernick and his wrongful ousting, Drew Brees and the karmic stench that surrounds companies and billionaire brands who cannot escape their wrongdoings by mistreating black/brown bodies. Code-switching; is it helpful or hurtful? Do we want a seat at the table or should we build our own? Or become The Spook Who Sat By The Door?

Ep. 13- Dr. Russell Ledet, Co-Founder/President of The 15 White Coats
A trip to the Whitney Plantation in Louisiana initially set out to serve as a history lesson between a daughter and father. Who knew it would spark a movement after a photo of 15 black Tulane Medical Students went viral, an idea sparked by Dr. Russell Ledet, Co-Founder and President of what is now known as The 15 White Coats. Myself and Dr. Ledet have a therapy session the first hour of the pod where we discuss our frustration with being black in America over the past few weeks with the death of #GeorgeFloyd, #BreannaTaylor and other unfortunate deaths of black people at the bloody hands of police. We then discuss how The 15 White Coats was created, its intended purpose and how it serves as a representation of inspiration and hope for the next generation of children to pursue medical careers.
