The Sound of Fowl Language

Over the past week or so, the debate about who has the better chicken sandwich between Popeye's and Chick Fil-A has been a hot topic. This debate has also driven other conversations about the type of businesses we support. Til & Will discuss how we can use the power of word of mouth and social media to help promote and possibly sustain minority owned businesses.

The Sound of Social Justice With A Reasonable Doubt

The NFL recently announced a partnership with Jay Z to focus on social justice. Since the announcement, Jay Z has received his fair share of criticism, but has also been praised for taking the next step in the process for change. Clearly, everyone isn't on the same page. Til & Will get into a relatively heated debate on this episode as they're both on different sides of the conversation.

The Sound of Thoughts and Prayers

Mass shootings in America seem to be a recurring event in the United States. It's nearly to the point it's the expectation instead of an anomaly. It's unfortunate that we live in a country that has the ability to put an end to such tragedies, but sits idly as these events occur again and again. Thoughts and prayers aren't moving the needle. It's time we take this a step further. In this episode, Til & Will discuss the impact domestic terrorism has on black and brown communities.

The Sound of Manhood

One topic not discussed in our community as frequently as it should be is the way we view manhood. In recent years, we've had open dialogue about toxic masculinity, however, we haven't examined in depth the lessons we're taught and experiences that contribute to the way we view manhood and vulnerability. In this episode, Til & Will discuss their experiences and some of the ways they cope with trauma from their upbringing.

The Sound of Understanding

While each of our perspectives is relative, coming to an understanding for two or several parties ideally should be a lot easier to reach even in disagreement. Oftentimes people do or say harmful words to or about others and the offended party is shamed for how they feel. We have seen countless examples of it and in this episode, Til and Will examine the underlying messages delivered in some of the recent transgressions in music and entertainment.

The Sound of Reparations

With the Democratic nomination in their sights, candidates have begun to lay out their plans for the presidency. Reparations are the hot topic of the day, but everyone doesn't seem to be on the same page. Even beyond the candidates for the democratic nomination, the public view on reparations being owed has seen some scrutiny as well. Til and Will offer their take on the matter in this episode.

The Sound of Restitution

After discussing the series "When They See Us", it was imperative to have a broader conversation about the system overall and its impact on black and brown people. Considering the outcomes that often come as a result of being institutionalized, Til and Will discuss the effects wrongful convictions can have on victims of the system.

The Sound of The System: When They See Us

Ava Duvernay teamed up with Netflix to produce a miniseries chronicling the lives of a group of black and brown boys known to the public by the moniker, Central Park Five. The series titled, When They See Us, takes us on the journey of each of these boys as they went through the legal process and were ultimately wrongfully convicted of crimes they didn't commit. Til & Will discuss the miniseries and the treatment of black and brown bodies by the legal system.

The Sound of Mixed Messages

Law is one of those things that is ever-changing. Whether it is a law centered around the identity of a person or the many bills that are being proposed and passed about abortion, we're living in a time where people simply don't agree on much of anything. In this episode, Til & Will discuss the many layers of blackness (and a little bit of blackness) that exists today and the pro-life agenda we're seeing spread rapidly in the legislative branch of our government.
