“Stunting” Like My Daddy w/Stunt Actor Jazzy Ellis

April 12, 2020

When was the last time you did a upside down seated handstand inside of a flipped over burning car?  

When was the last time you free jumped off of a 40 foot tall building?

When was the last time you set yourself on fire....ON PURPOSE!

Exactly - Me either!

But for today's guest, Ms Jazzy Ellis, that is all part of a regular day in the office. Welcome to an episode all about being a black stunt double/stunt actor.  It's full of the shit you don't think about in a regular day and Jazzy talks it all - from the danger to the workout, from the risk to the dollars, from the fun to the scary. 

Jazzy is highly experienced and chances are you've seen her as you watch your favorite films from the Avengers Infinity War movies, to Luke Cage or Bad Boys For Life, and all the way to The Fast and The Furious (The last one i believe).

Tune in listen up but please remember Jazzy is a trained professional and you should NOT attempt ANY of what you here today...except for the inspiration to get up and get trained on something you are passionate about.

N-word This N-word That w/Dr Corrie

N-word This N-word That w/Dr Corrie

March 30, 2020

Do you say the N-word - Do you not?

Does ending it in "ER" vs "A"  make it a difference?

Does hip hop create a pass for its use?

Dr Corrie Claiborne takes an educational, historical, and pop culture approach to the word and she doesn't tell you how to decide but she does make sure you are informed of the history, the meaning, and the impact.  This is a super dope episode.

Listen and share!!!

Corona Virus (COVID19) PART 1 - Emergency Episode - We Want You As Informed As Possible

March 18, 2020

SHARE SHARE SHARE THIS IMPORTANT EPISODE

If you have any questions or need the most up to date information please visit The Center For Disease Control and Prevention www.cdc.gov   Additional credible sources are The World Health Organization (https://www.who.int/)   Given how new COVID19 is and how fast information is changing please make sure you are using credible sources for your information.

We apologize that todays episode is lower quality sound than our normal however we felt it was important enough to trade sound quality for much needed information on the Corona Virus (COVID19). As such we recorded this interview over the phone.  BTW Dr Sutton was a trooper ...no hero..bc she did this interview even though just the day before she had a potential exposure to COVID19.  So when she said lets do this over the phone instead we understood.

In part 1 of this emergency session we are joined by Dr Madeline Sutton who has a long long list of credentials but served for 20 years (Until last year) as an Epidemiologist at the CDC.  Dr Sutton takes some time to break down all the most current information on COVID19.  In addition, she busts a few early myths.

Again Dr Sutton was potentially exposed to COVID19 earlier this week and as such we decided to make the move to record via phone so the quality is not our normal - please forgive us but THIS IS MUST LISTEN TO INFORMATION!!!! 

Lastly, in order to get this episode to you as fast as possible (overnight) limited editing was done.

Enjoy, take heed, be safe, and SHARE so your brothers and sisters can also be informed

A Voice For Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered Children w/Atlantis Filmworks

A Voice For Atlanta’s Missing and Murdered Children w/Atlantis Filmworks

March 15, 2020

 

In Atlanta GA between 1979 and 1981 approximately 2 dozen black children were abducted and murdered.  To this day no one has been charged with ANY of these murders and the many stories that have been told primarily ignore the perspective of the voices that matter most - those of the victims and their families.

The story of The Atlanta Child Murders is one full of false reporting, conspiracy, and pain.  There were major racial, political, and economic factors in the city dubbed "Too busy to hate" that all played a role in the concentrated murders of black youth in primarily black Atlanta.

Today we with sit down with Atlantis Filmworks a powerful team who have taken on the responsibility of connecting with the families and telling their stories.  They are committed to those who are voiceless and are lending their expertise, time and talents to uplifting the missing voices.  An aggregate of the many ignored voices is being combined into a fictional character (Cassandra) and magnified via a film production of the same name.

This is an amazing episode that will get you a bit closer to the tragedies that haunted Atlanta and im sure still haunt the families.
