the Talk 2 Q Radio Show Turns 5 Years Old Today

Happy birthday to me!

Stream the podcast here!

I just wanted to drop a quick podcast in recognition of today.  Today marks the 5th birthday of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show.  The show started on Feb. 20, 2011 as the Thank, Q Radio Show and over time the title changed and my format as well.  For those who have been along for the ride, you know that my show is ever-evolving.  I'm always looking to do things that not only make the show better, but I want to make it more informative.

I always encourage people to listen, but I have to remind them that I don't want you to take what me or my callers say to heart.  That's not the purpose of the show.  The purpose of the show is to bring up things mainstream America shies away from and give you different perspectives on those topics.  From there you can draw your own conclusion.  Never will I tell someone that my theory is the end-all, be-all theory.  However, the show allows me and my callers to spark something within you to make you think.  At that point, you can draw your own conclusion to take with you in your daily life.

Better yet, you can call in and share your newly found perspective with me and the listeners and help all of us grow.

T2Q will continue to evolve as the show gets older.  The show will continue to go through a metamorphosis that will hopefully bring about more listeners.  More listeners equals more callers.  More callers equals more opinions.  And that's all I ever wanted from Day One.  "No experts.  Just opinions."

Thanks for 5 years.

ZC: Manning Scandal, Dunk Contest, & More!

Zone Coverage returns to T2Q to discuss sports once again! 

Stream the show here!

The Peyton Manning Scandal 

A scandal that occured in the 90's has reared its ugly head again here in 2016. Allegations that Peyton Manning "teabagged" a female trainer whom he disliked caused a stir two decades ago. It supposedly ended with two separate settlements, but has now come up again. We'll discuss some of the details involved.

NBA All-Star Dunk Contest 

Was this the best of all-time? Do the dunks make the star or does the star makes the dunks? Virtually unknown players put on an amazing performance last week with some very creative dunks. How does it match up with some of the older competitions. Was it better than 'Nique and Air Jordan? We'll discuss.

We'll talk about those topics, the NFL Hall of Fame, and more on Zone Coverage! "Talk sports from the couch!"

Show No. 570

#T2Q: Feb. 16, 2016 - Getting Cheated On, Abortions Made Public, & Black Dollars

Getting cheated on, abortions made public, and the power of black dollars on tonight's T2Q! 

Stream the show here!
Tue., Feb. 16th @ 9 PM Eastern.  

Getting Cheated On

How do you respond to it? Just walk away? Physical/verbal confrontation? Revenge? What is the best way to respond to the ultimate relationship betrayal? We'll try to take a logical look at an emotional response.

Abortions Made Public 

Stacey Dash was recently put on blast for an abortion that she had. The baby's father was very unhappy that another man talked her into killing their child and he took to social media to protest. Fair or foul? We'll discuss if something like this should be discussed by lawmakers.

The Power of Black Dollars 

Patti Labelle made a killin' on her pies. Everyone rushed to the supermarkets and bought one. She made $1 million dollars in a single weekend. Why is it that black people can't seem to understand that they have the power to sway politics if they just focused their dollars?

All of this and more on tonight's Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "No experts. Just opinions."

T2Q Quickie: Black Wealth

"Black parents need to teach their kids not just how to survive, but how to thrive."

Stream the podcast here!
Mon., Feb. 15th @ 9 PM Eastern.  

So many of us black people have spent most of our adult lives wanting to be "rich" because no one taught us how to focus on being "wealthy." There's a difference. We need to teach our kids how to leave something behind other than a burial debt owed to the funeral home.

Is it the YOLO life style that keeps us focused on today and not tomorrow? To a certain extent, it is, but there's more to it than that. Black families just simply need to focus and teach. That's all. It's that simple, but we just won't do it. Some of us would rather be seen in public than heard by our children. Think about that. So many black people would rather spend their time entertaining themselves than raising their children.

How do we fix it?

I'll discuss this and more on this podcast edition of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "No experts. Just opinions."

#T2Q Quickie: Cam Newton

Final thoughts on Cam Newton...

Stream the podcast here!

The Super Bowl has come and gone for the 50th time. Although I wasn't impressed very much by the game, it still had some interesting story lines. The main one is the story of one Cam Newton. The guy with the huge grin who terrorized defenses all season long.

Listen to why I think he went from being a victim of media scrutiny to a volunteer for it. I'll give a run down on what went down and how Cam went from being one of the NFL's rising stars to someone who may struggle to continue getting endorsements.

You can also listen to my Show Legends and how they feel about this Camtroversy as they give their takes on it. You can hear their entire commentary here in their final thoughts of last my last show. 

All on this T2Q Quickie!  "Some things just need to be said."

T2Q: Feb. 9, 2016 - Valentine's Day, Medicine at School, & Beyonce!

Valentine responsibilities, kids taking medicine at school, and Beyonce's Super Bowl Halftime performance on tonight's show!

Stream the show here!
Tuesday, Feb. 9th @ 9 PM Eastern.  

Valentine's Day 

Sunday is a day of love in many households across the country (or lust). How will you spend it? What is your favorite Valentine's Day memory? What is the man's/woman's role to their mate on Valentine's Day?

Meds in School 

A Texas girl was suspended for attempting to save another girl's life by allowing her to use her inhaler. Should a 12 year old be held responsible for her actions in sharing a "controlled substance" when she thought another child was dying?

Beyonce's Message in Music

FOX News lost their minds (again) over "blackness." Beyonce gave a tribue to the Black Panthers with her Super Bowl attire. She also performed a show that referenced black issues. Was it wrong to inject race in the Super Bowl? Was she too radical for the event?

Denver Wins Super Bowl 50!

Peyton and crew take down Cam in the Golden Bowl!

Stream the show here!

I hate that the NFL decided to relinquish the Roman numerals.  Super Bowl L would have been just fine, if you ask me.

Anyway, the game is over and the dust has settled.  Carolina takes home its first championship and they are partying hard in the Tar Heel state.  What was your take from the Big Game?  Who let their team down?  Who stepped up in a major way?

Also on Zone Coverage, the Hall of Fame was announce and there's no T.O.  Was he left off of the final tally because of his past behavior or because other great WRs have had to wait over recent years?

All of this and more as Zone Coverage returns to T2Q!  "Talk sports from the couch!"

A Super Bowl Preview & Why the Pro Bowl Sucks

Peyton or Cam?

Stream the show here!

This is the time of the year when I get sad that football is coming to an end. It's the week before the Super Bowl and I know that once this game is over, there's no more meaningful football until September. 

Peyton Manning wants to ride into the sunset while cementing his legacy in the process. If he wins his 2nd Super Bowl, then it will allow him to go out on a high note. If he loses, and performs average or worse in the process, then the "choke artist" moniker will never go away.

Cam Newton is loved by his fans and hated by everyone else. There's rarely any in-between. Will he add another championship (BCS) to his trophy shelf or is it too soon for him to reach glory?

We'll discuss that and that garbage of a Pro Bowl game as Zone Coverage returns to the Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "Talk sports from the couch!"

T2Q: Feb. 2, 2016 - Flint, Co-Parenting, & Marriage

Stream the show here!

Tons of water is being donated to Flint, MI and that's a beautiful thing.  However, at what point is the root of the problem going to be resolved?  Is there a game plan for fixing the water supply and healing a poisoned city?  Is throwing money at bottles of water really helping?

A father, who doesn't live with the mother of his child, disciplines his daughter by taking her cell phone away from her.  The mother files theft charges against him for not returning it after his custody period (a weekend) was over.  Fair or foul?

Lastly, what's the difference between a spouse and a life partner and what are the pros and cons for both?  Is marriage really just a piece of paper?  Is being a life partner simply having one foot out of the door?

We'll discuss these things and more on tonight's episode of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!  "No experts.  Just opinions."
