Dungeons ‘n’ Durags
Ron has lived his entire adult life as a black man in a white world. In 2016 he had both a crisis of his Christian faith as well as a racial identity crisis (you can guess why). Since then he’s been on a journey to reconnect with his blackness in a way he never has before. Joining him will be his Black BFFs and the “Bow & Dre” to his “Junior,” JD and Yolanda T. Cochran. Every other week they’ll discuss issues of race and religion, politics and pop culture. Shade will be thrown. Jokes will be made. And provocative conversations will be had. He’s just one nerdy Oreo tryna become a double-fudge brownie y’all. So go easy on a brutha.

Funny and then suddenly someone's cutting onions

This guy's the real deal. And his book is painfully honest and raw and funny, and at times heart-breaking.

What does it mean to be Black?

4 episodes in and I’m really enjoying the deep reflections, roasting, innocent

Listen to This

Perfect melody of serious topics, funny anecdotes, and some dank music. Listen to the first episode and you’ll be hooked on Ron’s journey, accompanied by the hilarious JD and Yolanda.
