JSC Radio Ep. 70: Third Eye Blind


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — The 70th Episode of the People’s Podcast is here and, it’s our Anniversary! Yep. It’s been Two Years since this podcast made its inauspicious debut and ever since that day, it’s grown by leaps and bounds…all while never really having a true single focus. It’s not a sports podcast. It’s not an entertainment podcast. It’s not a political podcast. It’s simply a damn podcast and it’s been a blast for the first two years.

This is NOT appropriation. I grew up with cats who looked like this.

That brings us to Episode 70. Seventy! SETENTA! It is the official end of the “Second Season” of the show and I figure I would take it home by going at all the overly woke soldiers out there who have taken to yelling “cultural appropriation” in the same way that you’re not supposed to yell “fire” in a crowded room. The latest victim is Bruno Mars.

This week, along with me showing love and giving thanks to all of you who have supported this damn show, I also go in on the ridiculous idea that a half Filipino/half Puerto Rican dude who grew up in 1990s Los Angeles is somehow both “stealing from black culture” and succeeding at the expense of Black artists — this asinine and simple-minded idea that “they don’t like black music when it comes from black people” as if this is still the 1960s and most of the top stars in music over the last 40 years haven’t been black. There is such a thing as being too damn woke for your own good.

JSC Radio Extra: A few minutes on R. Kelly and how we treat Black Women…


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s up, Y’all. I know. It’s not Thursday or Friday. This ain’t #JSCWOW. Instead, I’m here to highlight a particular point I made in last week’s episode of JSC Radio. For those of you who have listened: THANK YOU. For those who haven’t, get your ass onto SoundcloudiTunesStitcher Radio, or Google Play and subscribe now.

During last week’s episode, which was the 45th, I dug into the archives and played part the audio from the Feel The Hunger Radio episode DJ Cutt-Nice and I did the day R. Kelly was acquitted in 2008. At 28 years old, I was more incredulous at how it happened. At 37 years old, I’m livid that it’s continued on and that boiled to the surface after I played the cut from 2008. Today, I’ll give you the transcript of what I said. Continue reading JSC Radio Extra: A few minutes on R. Kelly and how we treat Black Women…
