When Do Men Mature?


At what point does a guy turn into a man? It's not a specific age that brings about the transformation, but a set of events. However, it's the early stages of his development that will determine when or if he ever reaches maturity.

This conversation further breaks down the six components of manhood which we discussed during the "What Men Think" series last year (you can find all three parts here: I, II and III).

What factors into being mature?  Having the ability to stand up for yourself or for what's right?  The way you communicate with women.  Knowing how to lead others?

We'll get into that and more on this eye-opening episode of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show.  "No experts.  Just opinions."

Is It Cool To Have A Work Boo?


Is having a "work wife" or "work husband" at the office a bad thing? Can it be considered "cheating" on your mate?

When you spend 40+ hours per week with people on the job, you can develop relationships with them.  Some may be on a platonic level.  Some may be on a romantic level.  But what happens when the line is blurred?  At what level does a "work boo" get out of hand and becomes more?  

On tonight's show, we'll define what a "work boo" is how just "looking out for someone" can turn into an office romance in the bat of an eye.

Does Pride In Appearance Matter?

Is it fair to judge someone by their outfit?  Do you care what people think about how you dress?

Listen on your favorite podcasting platform here.

We now live during a time where our attire is based more on comfort than it is style.  Outfits that were once reserved for Walmart after 1 AM are now on display almost anywhere at any time of the day.  

What changed?  Why is it that our presentation no longer requires real effort anymore?  Did we put too much thought into looking a certain way for other people's satisfaction?

We'll discuss things like that as well as celebrity fashion influencers like Harry Style and Lizzo.  We'll also get into what to wear on a first date on this episode of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!

Got Veg?

On this special Q-on-1 podcast, I chat with vegan lifestyle expert, Esosa!  

This interview was recorded back in 2015, but only the audio was released.  So, this episode of T2Q is not a live one, but the premiere of a video from back in the day that has never been seen.  My show airs live every week, but I took this week off to celebrate my fiancee's birthday.  Priorities, right?

So, enjoy this episode of the first video interview I ever did for the Talk 2 Q Radio Show and I'll see you back live and in-person next week!

When she's not acting, designing, or producing, she's posting on her health blog, "Raw Girl in A Toxic World."  Her site gives readers access to vegan recipes as well as insights and inspiration to healthy living.

I'll ask her about how she got started with her healthy living and I'll inquire about her mission to influence others!  We'll also discuss how she got started on her TV show, "An African City."

All and this and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!

Esosa E is a raw vegan lifestyle expert. After receiving an undergraduate degree from Cornell University and completing business studies at Columbia University, her personal health crises and battle with acne led her to change her lifestyle and begin avid studies of holistic health in 2007. 

After being vegan for over ten years, Esosa finally felt she tapped into her full potential when she began eating a diet largely comprised of raw foods which helped her heal her acne and cleanse from parasites. 

She is the host of "Healthy Living in a Toxic World," a radio show now available on BlogTalkRadio and is also the author of “The Acne-Free Diet,” an e-book guide to overcoming acne for life. 

Outside of her passion for health, Esosa is an award-winning actress, writer, filmmaker, and model. Her mission is to make raw and vegan lifestyles accessible to anyone interested in achieving optimal health.

"Single" Wives

What's the point of getting married if you still have to do everything by yourself?

Listen on your favorite podcasting platform here.

There are a lot of single women who take care of themselves 100%.  They pay their own bills, handle their own car maintenance, perform their own chores, etc.  It's something that has to be done out of necessity when one lives alone.

However, once they get married and enter a partnership, shouldn’t some of those things change? Shouldn’t a man take over some of those responsibilities? 

Photo from www.jdsupra.com

There are a lot of women out there who are married, but are still having to wear a cape in order to get through daily life because they may have a lazy husband or a selfish one.  What happens when he makes you a "single" wife?

What Is The "Critical Race Theory"?

Is Critical Race Theory the end of White America and that's why so many people oppose its teachings?  

Listen on your favorite podcasting platform here.

Critical race theory (CRT) is defined as a body of legal scholarship and an academic movement of civil-rights scholars and activists in the United States who seek to critically examine the intersection of race and U.S. law and to challenge mainstream American liberal approaches to racial justice.

But FOX News thinks that course is the new boogeyman.  It appears that most of their talking heads think that to teach this theory is to imply that white people are inherently evil.  The pro-CRT people are stating that it's just showing how racism from the past still impacts society today.  And by acknowledging that, we can make strides to fix the problems.

Whose side are you on regarding CRT?

Baby Mama vs. Bonus Mama

Listen on your favorite podcasting platform here.

Blending a family together these days is a lot more complicated than when the Brady Bunch did it in the 70's...

With the number of single parents increasing with each passing year, it's a lot more rare these days to meet someone without kids.  And the older you are the more that possibility increases.  So there's a good chance that a woman's next boyfriend may have a child already.

So how can the new girlfriend manage to have a relationship with the guy's child(ren) without alienating the mother?  Because the only way things are going to work is for everyone to be accepting and respectful of each other, right?

But what if that doesn't happen?  How do you make it work?
  • Does the bonus mama make the effort to reach out to the baby mama and be friends?
  • What exactly is the bonus mama's role with the kids?
  • How does the father play a role in all of this?

Why Would A Guy Give A Girl Money?

Listen on your favorite podcast platform here

Is it so bad for a man to give his lady money every now and then? 

Some guys will go on eBay and buy designer shoes at astronomical prices. Some guys will buy a PS5 with all of the extras and drop a grip on it. Some guys will go to the club and “buy the bar” for their friends.  But let their woman ask them for $20 and they have to think about it. 

Why is that?  Why is it a sin for some guys to give a woman money? 

Do we not value our women?  As men, shouldn't we just make sure we handle business when it comes to keeping our women happy and not worry about the details?

We’ll take a progressive look of men giving money to women on this episode of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show.  "No experts. Just opinions."

There's not enough conversation between the community and the police and that's a problem.  Your opinion of the police department may vary based on your experiences, race, religion, location and more.  

So, I asked Lemar to come back on the show to have another discussion about basic questions people have about the police.  The media puts everything they do under a microscope these days and we rarely hear from both the police and citizens simultaneously.  

M&M joins the discussion as we have a candid discussion about why it appears the police don't "police" each other, decisions that are made on high-speed chases and more.  This is a very interesting show that opened my eyes to a lot of things I never considered simply by having a conversation.

It was my first time joining Chrissy's forum and it was everything that I expected it to be.  Chrissy is as genuine as they come and she always brings the real to her viewers.  She bounced a bunch of questions off of me about what it takes to be a man.  Are there different versions of a man?  What's causing the gap between the old school and new school line of thought?  Can a woman raise a boy into a man?

I'm normally not the one on the answering end of questions, but I will say that I felt completely comfortable on her show.  I held nothing back as I spoke my truths, including a scathing demand at the end of the show to fathers who are in co-parenting situation.

What happens to the people who like doing things the old fashioned way?  Do they conform to modern-day standards or do they hold firmly to the values that were instilled in them at one point of their lives?

Should We Cancel "Cancel Culture"?

Is it time to rethink "cancel culture" before it divides society even further?

Watch the unedited YouTube Live video here.

Listen on your favorite podcasting platform here.

Duration: 89 minutes.

Whether you agree or not, these things seem to happen each day.  Celebs, cartoon characters, books and more get scrutinized.  Nothing is above being canceled.

Are you okay with this?  

Singer/actor, Cher, recently said about George Floyd: "...I Kept Thinking …..Maybe If I’d Been There,…I Could’ve Helped."

Sounds like she was sypathizing with the situation.  Or was she?  Some say that she's posturing with the "white angel approach" and that her privilege allows her to think that she could have saved a poor black man's life.  Now this tweet has made its way to CNN and other news outlets.  Cher had to publicly apologize to keep from being canceled.

Cher is just one example of how cancel culture can sneak up on you like COVID.  Should it be that easy to run the risk of being canceled?  A tweet with no malice intent?  Should we ruin someone's livelihood a difference of opinion on politics?  What about something they said 10 years ago?  How about if they're accused (not charged or convicted) of something illegal?  Is it okay to effective take money out of their pockets or forever tarnish their reputation without evidence or a trial?

My Show Legends and I will discuss it all on this episode of the Talk 2 Q Radio Show.  "No experts.  Just opinions."

What Is "Respectful Cheating"?

Is there a such thing as "cheating respectfully"?

Watch on YouTube here.

Listen on Apple Podcasts here.

I just can't stay away from having dope discussions!  I joined Erica Warren and Gator Live on their show to discuss a ridiculous statement some reality TV show lady made about her "situationship".  

Do you think that a person can cheat and still be respectful about how they do it?  Can you creep a certain way and not lose points with your mate?

Also on the show, why are men so gung-ho about giving women relationship advice, but they seem to shy away from giving other men relationship advice?  These relationship coaches out here love to tell women what they should and shouldn't be doing, but have very few words for the men out here.

Dope Discussions with Erica is a great show that can entertain you, make you more aware, and also make you $100 richer!  Yes, you read that right!

What's The Answer To Mass Shootings?

Another mass shooting and nothing is done about it.  

Watch the unedited YouTube version here.

Listen on your favorite podcast platform here

Duration: 46 minutes.

Mass shootings continue to happen across the country and the politicians don't have an answer for it.  Or they don't want to have an answer for it.  After all, they receive a lot of money from the NRA come election time.

Would new and more restrictive gun control laws hurt or harm society?  Are more stringent background checks the answer?  Where do we start in solving the problem?

Joining me to discuss this are influencers, Crystal Hickerson and Brandy Singleton.  We will also talk about the Derek Chauvin trial and where we think things are going with it.

Life in the ATL: Real or Fake?

Is Atlanta a wanna-be Hollywood or does it just get a bad rap?

Watch the unedited version on YouTube here.

Listen on your favorite podcast platform here.

This conversation happens quite often, especially with people from the South.  Is the ATL all that it's cracked up to be?

So many people move there to start new careers or small businesses, but so many end up back where they started.  The dating scene is tumultuous because everyone wants to be Jeezy or Cardi B, so there appears to be more of a focus on lifestyle instead of substance.

But that's just what the outsiders think.  What do the people native to the ATL think about how their city is perceived?

Only Fans model, Valesia Rose, rejoins the show to talk about life in the Atlanta, GA area.  I'll pick her brain to see if the myths are true about "Hot 'Lanta".  As a citizen of the area for years now, she can give a perspective of someone who moved there and learned to fit in.

This episode was a YouTube-exclusive video of the conversation that I had with my Year One Show Legends, but I've decided to release it as a podcast episode.  the Talk 2 Q Radio Show celebrated 10 years of existence back in February and I decided to get all of my Show Legends who came aboard in Year One together for a conversation.

We discussed what the show has meant to all of us over the past decade. We also talked about how it was therapeutic and provided a much-needed stress outlet in so many cases as well as how it formed bonds amongst people scattered across the globe. 

As the show grew, we grew as a family. I can truly say that M&M, Buck, Ray, Crystal, and Amanda are my brothers and sisters. Please enjoy this trip down Memory Lane as T2Q celebrated 10 years with the people who made the show what it is today.

Are Men Supposed To Pay Your Bills?

When a man is in a relationship or married, is it his duty to pay a woman's bills? 

Watch the unedited live show on YouTube here!

Play on your favorite listening platform here!

Duration: 50 minutes.

T2Q kicks off Season 10 with a relationship topic that will leave a lot of people heated!  Are men responsible for paying a woman's bills when it comes to a relationship or marriage?

Quite a few of today's women will tell you that the life that grandma and grandpa had 50+ years ago no longer exists today.  Women and men are supposed to be equals in the household.  He cooks and cleans just as she cooks and cleans.

But, some of those same women want to hold onto the grandma/grandpa approach to finances.  They think that men are supposed to pay for dates.  Some even think that men are supposed to contribute and/or pay all of her bills as well.

Are some ladies picking and choosing what's traditional and what's not? 

We'll discuss that and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "No experts. Just opinions."
