JSC Radio Ep. 61.5: I’m Black & I Have A Dad

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — What’s Happening People! The Cause Speeds on Its Way and it’s been a minute since I’ve dropped a “.5” on you, but this was too good to get crammed into one show.

Initially, I had planned on this being the bulk of Ep. 61, but, because of #Lions, there was no way that I could give this interview its proper justice by having it tied to Jim Caldwell. Ep. 61.5 needed to stand on its own.

This week, we welcome JSC Contributor Jazmine Duke back to the show. She made a very notable appearance on the show a year ago and this time she’s back with her father, Aaron, with whom she co-wrote a book called I’m Black and I Have A Dad. She has also previously written on this site on Father’s Day last year, telling a story about how her dad legit saved her life

Aaron Duke, is more than Jazmine’s dad. He’s a retired U.S. Marine, a self-made man, and after listening to this show, you will see where Jaz gets it from in terms of their raw and outspoken nature. The interview is nearly an hour long and if you’re one of those people who pucker up at the talk of racism and sexism…then you need to grow up and put on your big boy pants because it’s gonna get woke in here.

JSC Radio Ep. 51: 10 Second Runoff

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What Up Doe, y’all! It’s time once again for the Podcast that never ends. Episode 51 is here and it ended up being a follow up to the milestone 50th Episode.

This week, for the first time since Episode 23, I was forced to go right at the man in the Oval Office over his comments about NFL players protesting racial injustice during the national anthem, and it was…well, not easy. But I explain that during the show. Plus, I get on Lions fans. It’s something for everyone!

JSC Radio Ep. 45: Cult of Personality

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s up everybody. After a couple of weeks off for a well earned vacation, the People’s Podcast is back and so is the rage. We rediscovered that R. Kelly is a garbage human, and Michael Vick is still not very bright. For the 45th Episode of JSC Radio, I got off on Kelly and Vick, plus I dig into the archives for some goodness from…Feel The Hunger Radio.

An Ode to My Dad…

What’s good y’all. Jay here. As apart of the evolution of the site, I’ve decided to add a few contributors. That’s right, we’re expanding! They will be people who have awesome viewpoints and amazing personal stories. The first is Jazmine Duke. She is the founder The Female Condition, which is a no holds barred feminist website. Followers of JSC Radio will remember her from her amazing appearance in January on Episode No. 27.

During that show, she mentioned that she is writing a book on her wonderful relationship with her father called “I’m Black and I Have a Dad” which will talk about her experience growing up in Minnesota with a single black father who raised her to be an independent, free-spirited Feminist. On this Father’s Day, she drops this wonderful story about her father and opens a window in to why dude is her ace.

Without further ado, I hand the floor off to Jazmine.

JSC Radio Ep. 39: Genuine Draft

PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  Welcome back to the Mothership, everyone. After being preempted last week due to my work at the NFL Draft here in Philadelphia, The People’s Podcast is back with a little bit of the fun of the draft — including a lot of boos from the Philly faithful, a heartfelt and profane promo from a 1st round pick, and some A+ Heel work from Roger Goodell and Drew Pearson. I also make fun of the Fyre Festival, plus a dose of reality as racism once again barges into the room during a sporting event as that good ol’ fashioned 1940s style racist behavior once again rears its ugly head in Boston.

Remember, JSCRadio is on SoundcloudiTunesStitcher Radio, and Google Play! The show is also on Twitter at @JSCRadio! Also, as you’ve seen on the JSC Radio page, we’re now up to 39 full episodes — hitting another Milestone next week! Going forward, expect there to be an update every week when a new show drops — usually, but not always — every Thursday.
