    Covid-19 Clinic for Balancing Our Minds

    Covid-19 Clinic for Balancing Our Minds

    These  knowledgeable clinical therapists joined us with insight and  practical tips to help us navigate and cope through the pandemic. Many people are struggling since we entered this unprecedented era, dealing with the coronavirus. 

    Overthinking, fear of the unknown, isolation, helplessness are feelings and behaviors many are struggling with. We did our part today, in leaving words of support and encouragement to take care of ourselves and each other during this time. Humans are resilient, and with a little help from a therapist, we can bounce back from any tragedy this existence throws our way. I do hope you are enlightened and encouraged by this episode.

    Examining the Science of Covid-19 with Dr. Betsy Cairo

    Examining the Science of Covid-19 with Dr. Betsy Cairo

    The Science. Live from Studio A at 5 PM Central with our esteemed former guest Dr. Betsy Cairo.

    Enlightening and exciting conversation with this lady. She helped us understand nuanced information about the virus, related research, and most importantly distribution and implications of the Covid vaccine. 

    We don't deal in conspiracy theory on Mental Speak, but rather in factual data gathered through anecdotal and sponsored research. We encourage humans to trust their innate judgment through observing life, and their intuition. We offer that in the case of Covid, it may be beneficial to take Western science with a grain of salt, in the context of human history and the governing institutions. 

    Log on to www.fbrn.us on Sundays at 5PM Central or join the discussion on Facebook Live @mentalspeakradio and please tell a friend to tell a friend.

    *We will be moving to Wednesdays beginning in March! Stay tuned for updates. Thank you for your support.

    Making Sense of the Coronavirus Pandemic

    Making Sense of the Coronavirus Pandemic

    We had just returned to the studio after the national and state lockdown mandates for the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic of 2020. It was time to begin making sense of what we were experiencing. This episode takes us back to the early months of the confusion and fear. 

    David Pierce of Pugilism and Politics joined me as we discussed the political landscape, medical and science aspects of coronoavirus, and shared what we understand the pandemic to mean on an individual and global level, based on the ancient teachings of elders that came before us. 



    WE are back for 2021! Expect more dynamic dialogue, commentary, and analysis with guests. The difference is our focus is on elevation and the hereafter. We shall rise above all adversity with knowledge and application. Tell a friend to tell a friend to join the Mental Speak and Music Speak Radio show, Sundays at 5 PM Central. You can listen at www.fbrn.us or join us on Facebook Live.

    Music Pioneer Bowlegged Lou of Full Force

    Music Pioneer Bowlegged Lou of Full Force

    For our first installment of the Music Speak broadcast, we were obliged to have a member of the illustrious R&B/hip hop singing bands, “Bowlegged Lou“ George, of Full Force. 


    Lou is one of the six-member group, including his two brothers, Paul Anthony & B-Fine, along with cousins Baby Gerry, Curt-T-T & J-R Shy Shy. 

    During promotion, many people were surprised to learn how wide their music production career has spanned, across genres and decades. In my observation, if Teddy Riley is the father of New Jack Swing, Full Force’s influence makes them the godfathers of the genre, given the ground-breaking fusion of R&B/hip hop sound they introduced to the world in 1984.

    Lou, along with his brothers continues to give back to community through philanthropy and music, and are highly gracious for allowing us to celebrate their contribution to the culture and the soundtrack of our lives.


    Be sure to tune in to the show Sundays, 5 PM Central at FBRN.US. Tell a friend to tell a friend.

    A Conversation with The Mighty Sir Mix-A-Lot

    A Conversation with The Mighty Sir Mix-A-Lot

    Anthony Ray, also known as Sir Mix-A-Lot gave posses everywhere a tune to cruise down Broadway in your town; and unbeknownst to many, he gave women of color an anthem of Self-Love that has stood the test of time. He was gracious enough to grant us an interview before joining MC Hammer, Kid-N-Play, and a host of other Old School artists on stage at Hammer's House Party at the Toyota Music Pavilion in Irving that evening. It's these classic jams that make us reminisce to a more fun era, of cruising strips, and worshipping the derriere of Sistas everywhere.  

    Tune in every Friday at 5PM Central FBRN.US on the Red Stream, and find the show on your favorite podcast platform including iHeart Radio, Spotify, TuneIn, Apple Music, and more. Tell a friend to tell a friend.
