This is an amazing podcast to listen to during your quiet time or with a partner for further discussion. Very candor and open conversation about the true intricacies of navigating relationship and marriage in today’s world. Great Job Chiedozie for pulling this needed discussion together.

More about host, psychology, less advice from guys who don’t have good advice

This show is listening to men if African descent talk marriage and define what makes their personal relationships work. I have had the conversations I’ve heard on the podcast with people I personally know many African Americans in the middle class demographic this show features and have heard so the show doesn’t cover much new ground for me.

However, have no idea what typical black men talk about or do. I would love to learn more about how these men decide to marry and how they approach the dating process. If the podcast interviews people who are lower income in predominantly black settings I would like to listen to that for sure. My relatives are now typically middle class and the ones who haven’t escaped poverty tend to be more recluse or guarded and despite the joy I get from picking people’s brains I tend not to do this with them.

Finally, the host is single and doing the podcast to improve his emotional understanding of marriage. I want to understand how his love life has changed because of the podcast and how has he grown from past relationships. Particularly because the host functions as a de facto relationship expert.
