    We Just Talked

    We Just Talked

    Hey everyone! 



    Long story short....this week we kind of just talked. We talked about the state of things and how we perceive them. We ended up having some really insightful discussions (hence the 2 hour run time!) Listen in spurts, listen straight through. Either way - we definitely think there is a nugget of truth for everyone who listens. Hope you enjoy!

    What is Nationalism?

    What is Nationalism?

    WELCOME BACKKKKKKK TO THE SECOND SEASON OF THE BLACK AND WHITE PODCAST!!!!!!!!!!

    Chase, Zach, and AK take on the difficult topic of Nationalism with a sprinkle of Patriotism. What even is Nationalism? Do we define it differently here than other countries do? Is it legitimate? Or is it a guise for racism, oppression, and other various forms of oppressive language or actions? We try to unpack that in this weeks episode. 

    We also discuss the Pledge of Allegiance as Zach mentions the fact that his son says the pledge every day at school. Do you think it is something that should be taught? Do you know what the words of the Pledge of Allegiance actually mean? Tell us!!!! 

    Looking forward to being back and we cant wait to hear your thoughts after listening to this weeks episode!

    Stimulus?

    Stimulus?

    Welcome back everyone! This week we discuss what happens next... a new stimulus package? What did you do with you stimulus funds last time? We also take some time to discuss how we evaluate Presidential Candidates and if it makes sense to continue our current election strategy. 

    We then go on to discuss the impact COVID 19 has had on our country and the future of small business in America. Does it make sense that CEOs and Billionaires are bailing out businesses before the Federal Government does? Give us your thoughts!

    We wont be recording our next episode this week with Christmas in full swing but look forward to diving head first in to what is hopefully a much better year in 2021! Remember to like subscribe and share these episodes with your friends and family! 

    Finally tell us what YOU want to hear about heading into 2021. How can we make these episodes better for you and your listening experience. Looking forward to talking with all of you real soon!

    Mental Health

    Mental Health

    LONG TIME NO SEE!!!!! 



    This week - we wanted to remind everyone that it is okay to not feel okay. But what isnt okay is ignoring those feelings or pretending like they dont exist. Zach, AK, and Chase have each had their own personal experiences with depression, anxiety, or a variety of mental health troubles. This was the opportunity for us to discuss them openly and give each of you the comfort of knowing you arent alone in feeling this way sometimes. 

    We hope each of you takes the time to listen this week and feels confident and comfortable knowing that you have resources in us to talk to. Without judgement, without criticism, there is always someone to listen. 

    We have attached a link to this episode with countless resources for each and everyone of you to use should it become necessary. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and we'll be talking with you all again real soon!

    Our Friend Chase

    Our Friend Chase

    Have you ever been called a Conservative? A Liberal? A boot licker? A snowflake? All because of one opinion on one issue addressed by one politician. Then you might be an American caught in the war against politics. Our conversation with Chase explains that one belief or moral value doesnt make you a republican or a democrat. Chase discusses just about every topic we've discussed on our podcast to date and offers his insights in to how he sees the world especially in terms of our current President and past Presidents as well. His thought process is extremely insightful and despite differing in a few different areas, he, myself, and AK were all able to find common ground in the crux of our ideas and what we would like to see accomplished. 

    Follow Chase on Twitter @cut2_the_chase7

    As always with any guest, the goal is to learn and expand our knowledge centers. We are not here to argue, but quite honestly, I think you would find it quite difficult to argue with Chase anyway lol
