203. Feed It Into My Veins
In the first episode of the new year, I spend some time detailing my plans for Hyphen Nation, review some newish music from Noveliss, Nas, and Drake & 21 Savage, go into a deep dive about Talib Kweli's debut solo album Quality from 2002, and bring it all home with a ringing endorsement of the phenomenal cinematic achievement that is Everything Everywhere All At Once!
Sorry I'm late, it was my birthday.
Music by No Name Tim.
202. My Sean Before The Shawn
In this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I catch up on some music reviews, tell y'all about how much I love the Heartstopper series, spend 3 minutes on Childish Gambino, and talk about my love for all things Puff Daddy.
201. Self Care Vol. III: First Blood
"God, can you feel me?
Take me away from all the pressure and all the pain
Show me some happiness again"
200. Bicentennial Man
Today, I talk about the long and winding road to episode 200, answer Errick and Kat’s questions that I missed on 199, preview some future episode topics, talk about how a friend’s review of recent MCU movies being right out of the back issue bins is perfect, say “for the 200th time” a lot, and rank the Stranger Things seasons!
199. The Questions III
On this edition of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST, we return to the questions! I solicited questions from my friends and family and I set about answering them… except for Handsome Bane’s because I’m a jerk. Also, I take some NSFW swipes at the gun control problem in the country before we get into the proceedings.
Strong mix of subjects and interesting commentary
There is something here for everyone.
Social commentary about race
Movies and TV
While there are a million podcasts with people looking for an audience, Hyphen Nation captures the growth and perspective of one man and all his passions. Its like an episodic biography in that you see a person evolve via their thoughts on their own hobbies and entertainment. Listen closely and long enough and you start to see the podcasts impact on other podcasts and Hyphens drive to give others a voice or just to have a fun conversation about just about anything.
Episode 155: My Dinner's
really enjoyed this podcast!
One of the best!!!
Easily one of my fav podcasts to listen to at anytime. Great topics from wrestling to hip hop to society as a whole. Kelen is a hell of an entertaining and intriguing host. This is a must listen to show
