Dating Is Extinct

Will marriage soon be a thing of the past?

PLAY on your favorite listening platform. 

Duration: 3 minutes.

People don't take dating seriously any more and because of that relationships are becoming extinct. It is no longer the informal interview process to determine if someone is a long-term option or not. It's just something to do. Some people do it for free food. Some people do it for easy sex. 


The art of courting has gone the way of the dinosaur. What can we do to get it back? How can we refocus society on taking their relationships seriously these days?

There Are Still Good People Out There

It's so refreshing to know that good people still exist.

PLAY on your favorite listening platform.

Contrary to the foolishness we see on a daily basis on social media, there are still some good people in the world. People who are willing to inconvenience themselves to lend a helping hand to others. 

As you sit around on this turkey holiday, be sure to reflect on all of the good things that have happened in 2020. Let those things carry you into 2021. 

Oh, and one last thing: show the world that there are still decent people in this country. Do something for someone without being asked to do it.

Breaking The Glass Ceiling

Are women finally breaking through the glass ceiling in society?

PLAY on your favorite listening platform.

Duration: 6 minutes.

So many girls see themselves in Kamala Harris.  What kind of impact will she have on the young ladies in this country who want to better their position in life?


Joining me to discuss Kamala Harris being the Vice President-elect and what it means is Shamira Ervin-Parker.  

Shamira is a career woman who has elevated herself in Corporate America through hard work and dedication.  And she has managed to do all of that while balancing being a wife and a mother.  

I ask her a few questions about how this election may have accelerated the growth of equality in this country for women.  Have the ladies finally broken the barrier to bigger and better things in the United States?  

We'll discuss it in this Q-on-1 edition of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show.

Thanks To The Podcaster's Vision!

I am thankful for the opportunity to appear on the Voices of Courage 2020 Rise Podcast to provide a Podcaster's Vision to why I do what I do!

Listen to the episode here.

Duration: 12 minutes.

The gracious host of the show, Brandy Singleton, gave me an opportunity to do something that I don't normally do...  and that's to talk about myself and the Talk 2 Q Radio Show.

I talked about what inspired me to start a podcast, the ups and downs of being a podcaster, and my most memorable moment in podcasting.

My show is unique.  It's not the typical podcast you may come across on the regular.  T2Q is a talk radio show at heart.  People are able to interact with me and give me their two cents on a topic.  Despite my name being in the title of the show, it has never really been about me and what I think.

So, for Brandy to give me the opportunity to share my experiences and be in the spotlight for a change was a flattering experience and I thank her for it!

Let me know what you think of the episode in the comments below or shoot me an e-mail over to Talk2QNow@gmail.com.

Thanks.

Should Guys Ask Women For Money?

PLAY on your favorite platform.
 
(Scroll down to watch the video version of this podcast.)

On this show, our main topic will revolve around guys asking women for money.  Is that okay in your eyes?  Is it a case-by-case basis type of thing for you?  What's your take?  

Duration: 75 minutes.

The dating game has a ton of obstacles.  Dealing with someone who may cheat is hard enough.  But what about dealing with someone who is financially needy?  And by someone, I mean dudes.  Should guys... ask women... for money. 


We'll also discuss why there now appears to be so many women over 30 years old who have never been married as opposed to 25 years ago.  Do they choose not to be married or are they less desirable than they once were?

The answer probably depends on who you ask!

All of this and more on this live recording of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!  "No experts.  Just opinions."

Life In The SWAC: JSU v. Alcorn

PLAY on your favorite platform.

What happens when you ask a Jackson State grad and an Alcorn State grad who has the best school?

Duration: 51 minutes.

You can find an HBCU in Atlanta or you can find an HBCU in California.  But there's something about the South that seems to appeal to people of color.

I'm joined by Curtis Burroughs (JSU) and Charles Helom (Alcorn) to discuss the Southwestern Athletic Conference, better known as the SWAC by those familiar with HBCU schools.  

We discuss what made attending a SWAC school different than the larger, public four year colleges like the University of Mississippi or LSU.  We chat about dormitory life, homecoming week, Greek life, the rivalries between the schools (sports and band) and more!

It's a fun discussion that takes us back down memory lanes at times about college life.  Enjoy this Q-on-2 podcast with two guys who share a special rivalry that will never be broken thanks to the longstanding traditions of the SWAC.

Check out Charles on his YouTube channel here.

Single Mom Dating Struggles

PLAY on your favorite platform.

Do men know what a single mother goes through just to have a dating life?

Duration: 28 minutes.

I'm joined by Schemeka Bowrin to discuss the difficulties women who have children experience when it comes to dating.

There are many reasons a woman may be a single mom.  Maybe she was married and got divorced or the husband passed away.  Maybe she got caught up in the moment and found herself alone as a mom.

Either way, they are a part of our dating pool, so this is an opportunity for guys to have some insight into their world when it comes to finding a significant other.

Enjoy this Q-on-1 podcast with Schemeka and follow her on social media.

From Prison Suit to Power Suit


She went from prison suit to power suit. 

Duration: 38 minutes.

The Shawshank Redemption has nothing on this story.  Neither does Bob Marley's Redemption Song.  My guest joins me to summarize her exaggerated business strategy that led her to a federal prison sentence for over two years. 

Rojonah Harris is the epitome of making the most of a second chance. She had her whole life ahead of her and it all came to a screeching halt one faithful day. Before she knew it, she was being taken away from her children and found herself with a new family, that wasn't of her choosing, at a correctional facility. 

Instead of falling apart, like most inmates do, Rojonah came out better than she was when she went in. This is truly an example of how prison reform should be in America.  Her story is a true tale of second chances and motivation! 

I hope that you enjoy my Q-on-1 discussion with her!

Buck Addresses The Nation

PLAY

Normally, I'm the one getting on my soap box and having a rant about a topic.  

Duration: 4 minutes.

Not this time!  Buck gives his two cents on what people in this country need to do now that the election is over. 

This brief, but potent political tirade focuses on self-reflection and healing ourselves in this nation we call the United States of America.  Make no mistake about it.  There's nothing "United" about this country these days.  White people appear to be sick of black people complaining and black people appear to be sick of having reasons to complain.  And that's enough drama without mixing in the LGBTQ community, Muslims, Hispanics, and others who are stressed to the max right now.

However, we can begin to turn things around and make it better if we all give Buck four minutes to make his point. 

the Talk 2 Q Radio Show.  "No experts.  Just opinions."  And Buck's opinion is really good!  He's a Show Legend for a reason.

Who Is Responsible For Birth Control?


PLAY

When two people who aren't married decide to have sex, who is responsible for birth control?  

Duration: 3 minutes.

It sounds like a tough question, doesn't it?  Well, it's not.  Unwanted pregnancies happen quite often these days and people want to throw around the blame on who should have been responsible to prevent it.  The fact that women and men have argued over this for decades is beyond me.

I finally take the time to break down and answer this very important question.  The answer is quite simple and if you hear me out then you'll understand why.  Maybe afterwards, you'll see how easily you can avoid being a member of the single dads or single moms club.
