Episode 6: Lamar Odom Is A Crackhead

On our most recent edition of #TheGuideToGradeALiving, GAL’s Big 3 reunite to cover grounds on everything popping and impacting the streets. Obviously, we had to hash out our feelings regarding this ongoing 5-week summer campaign and the results of the Pusha T v. Drake “beef” (if that’s what you want to call it). After that our Mild Sauce neighbor Ryan Escobar (“The Backcourt” podcast) joined us to discuss the NBA Finals & Lebron’s legacy. From there we hit a few deeper topics about life and society at-large. Listen. Subscribe. Share. Spread love- it’s the Grade A way!

Episode 7: Brothers Gonna Work It Out

On our latest episode of The Guide to Grade A Living, we are joined by Chicago-based artist, Davey Friday. Davey is a close friend of the Grade A community with a deep knowledge of self, art & POC. As a bio grad and aspiring architect, Davey's perspective on humanity and society are rooted in science as well as empathy. The conversation ranges from Black history & cooperative economics to gentrification. We really peel back some deep layers about the Black community on this episode before closing on a lighter note with a great question- what comedian would you like to hang with for the day? Listen!
