Episode 1 – What the Tyrese Meltdowns Say About Us
In the first-ever Conscious Approach video, fellow content creator and my friend Mario “Dogon” Milligan joins me to discuss how the recent bizarre behavior of Tyrese on social media displays the nature of people to crave sensational behavior. We also discuss whether that craving is natural, or forced on us by media agendas.
Part 1 – Dogon watches the “Chef Tyrese” video for the first time, and we discuss what it is about these types of videos that interest us so much.
Part 2 -Tyrese as a marketing ploy for followers and increased business. Including commentary on the monetization of attention-seeking with examples such as Instagram models, reality tv, and Bow-Wow.
Part 3 – Are we trained to crave sensational behavior, or is that craving natural? Including brief commentary on celebrity non-answers to the media, LaVar Ball, and Liangelo Ball.
Part 4 – Narratives, story-telling, and people’s role in boosting content such as Tyrese’s. Including brief commentary on ESPN, Kyrie Irving, and the business of sports.
Part 5 – The power of social media and how it influences our behavior, particularly with younger generations who are born and grow up with it already being prominent.
Part 6 – “Produced” moments of emotion, and how Tyrese’s behavior causes us to fall for the act and not realize the strategy going on in these types of situations.
Part 7 – Celebrity moments of emotion as business, using entertainment and social media. Including commentary on Wendy Williams and Gucci Mane.
Part 8 – Do Tyrese and other forms of black entertainment formulate the perception of black people in America? Including commentary on reality TV, how hip-hop culture has become a mainstream commodity, and Kendrick Lamar.
Part 9 – Who is controlling the pipeline of black media, and how does that influence the celebration of Tyrese-like content? Including commentary on the “SC6” ESPN show, Michael Smith, Jemele Hill, and BET before it was bought out.
Part 10 – Is the desire for things like the Tyrese videos natural, or have we been trained by the media to want them? A good nature versus nurture segment that also gets into sexual content, Instagram models, other “triggers” that we indulge in, and….aliens?!
Part 11 – Our natural wants and desires, how that plays into the popularity of Tyrese and other content like it, and the “suggestions” that pervert those wants and desires.
Part 12 – In the closing segment, Dogon and I discuss American socialization and the idea that it is socialization, not natural instincts, that create triggers for sensational content. Also, I watch a crazy music video on IG for the first time. Your thoughts?
Episode 2 – How the #FreeMeek Campaign Displays Black Victimhood
In episode 2 of the Conscious Approach podcast, Dogon and I discuss Meek Mill’s legal troubles, his sentencing, and whether the outcry for justice on his behalf is representative of our habit to resort to victimhood and throw accountability out the window during times when it is needed most.
Part 1 – We kick things off with a rundown of interesting topics, including the slow start to the Cleveland Cavaliers season, the Miami Hurricanes, new Star Wars movies, Eminem’s new album title, Kevin Spacey, and fantasy football.
Part 2 – We broach the idea of Meek and other rappers who are caught up in legal trouble, and the phenomenon that is the one-sided discussion of their unfair treatment. The desire to profess their innocence is understandable, but can we get a little talk about accountability as well?
We also discuss celebrities and their delusions of legal invincibility.
Part 3 – Dogon and I tell stories of personal experiences with the law, and the fine line between actual victimization and personal accountability.
Part 4 – How we can use examples like Meek Mill to understand that we can both highlight societal issues that need to be addressed, but also hold ourselves accountable for the roles that we play in our circumstances.
We also talk about not changing the system, but acquiring resources so that you don’t have to be exposed to it.
Part 5 – Choosing the right situations and people to champion for black and social causes. Including commentary on Gucci Mane and T.I.
Part 6 – Victimhood and historical events, such as the creation of the Black Identity Extremist list. We also discuss the important idea of shifting the focus from trying to change long-standing systems to acquiring resources so that we can escape those systems.
Episode 3 – Our thoughts on Fabolous and Jadakiss’s Long-Awaited Joint Album, Friday on Elm Street
After years of anticipation, heavyweights Fabolous and Jadakiss finally released their long-awaited joint album, Friday on Elm Street. What did we think of the project? Press play to find out!
Episode 4 – Jimbo Fisher Leaves FSU for Texas A&M: Our Reactions
Florida State University head football coach Jimbo Fisher has left FSU and accepted a lucrative offer to coach Texas A&M. We discuss his tenure at FSU and what his departure means for the program and Florida State fans.
Episode 5 – Ray Allen and Thirst Culture in America
Former NBA superstar Ray Allen claims he was catfished when he was recently exposed for carrying on an internet relationship with a man whom he thought was a woman. Whatever the truth may be, the cause of his troubles can be traced back to what has become a big part of American culture and how men and women communicate: “thirsting”.
We discuss Ray Allen’s situation and how thirst culture has become such an ingrained way that men and women communicate, the problems that come from it, and how men (if they wise up) can even the score in this crazy dynamic that currently sees women benefitting, and men looking like desperate fools.
Episode 6 – The NFL Pledges $89 Million to Social Justice Reform: Our Reactions
The 2017 NFL season saw its fair share of roadblocks thanks to player protests and divisive comments from Donald Trump. After numerous debates around declining ratings and American pride, the NFL owners held a meeting with a select group of NFL players to discuss awareness of social causes. The result? The NFL pledges $89 million over 7 years to social justice reform.
We discuss our reactions, the strengths and weaknesses of the protests themselves, and what good, if any, can come from this glorified PR move.
Episode 7 – Odell Beckham & Tom Brady
NFL star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. recently posted a video on his Instagram page suggesting that his passion for the game is one in the same with quarterback Tom Brady. While he made it clear that he may not know how to express his passion the way that Brady does, he nevertheless insinuated that there is a double-standard in the way that his passion is perceived and the way that Brady’s is perceived.
We discuss Tom Brady’s treatment by the media and the double-standard that works in his favor, whether it’s fair or not, and the legitimacy of Odell Beckham’s point.
Episode 8 – Cam’ron & Mase, and Believing Hip-Hop Hype
Two past-their-prime rappers in Mase and Cam’ron engaged in an entertaining beef stemming from old wounds and an overdue bid for New York hip-hop superiority. While nice while it lasted, it served as a reminder that hip-hop is an entertainment art-form that should be regarded as such.
We discuss how the beef displays our tendency to consume hip-hop as if it were reality. Also, how that can be a dangerous habit when it comes to maintaining a proper perspective on life; especially if you are trying to make it in the rap game.
Episode 9 – Jesus is King: The Commentary of Kanye West
Kanye West has become a lighting rod in recent memory, both for his artistic inclinations as well as for his views on societal issues. Although he continues to march to the beat of his own drum, the combination of his musical choices and his opinions has often sparked debate and created controversy, with everyone weighing in on everything from his blackness to his sanity.
As the video series reconvenes, I am joined by my buddy and new contributor to the platform, Dade Diner-o-g, to discuss the reaction to Kanye West’s Jesus is King album as well as why there seems to be such hostile and negative commentary around him. We also discuss the possible root cause(s) to the negativity and whether there is value inherent in Kanye’s rhetoric so long as people are willing to listen before jumping to criticism.
Episode 10 – Colin Kaepernick: Mistakes Made and Lessons Learned
When former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem to bring attention to the need for racial equality in America, he probably didn’t anticipate becoming a lightning rod for anti-Americanism and racism, or his unemployment.
Now, after a couple of years, a bogus $89 million NFL commitment to social justice initiatives, and countless debates, we discuss whether there was any merit to his recent failed workout in Georgia, the value of what he did, and where he went wrong.
Episode 11 – People Urge NFL to Drop Michael Vick from Pro Bowl – Our Reactions
The news that the NFL has invited former quarterback Michael Vick to be an honorary captain at the 2020 Pro Bowl has sparked outrage. Many people don’t believe he deserves the honor after being convicted of dogfighting in 2007.
We discuss whether the outrage is warranted, as well as the cultural undertones in play that shape how different communities perceive issues such as dogfighting.
Special Episode – Kobe Bryant: 1978 – 2020
For a special edition to the platform, we gather to discuss the tragic death of Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, who along with his daughter Gianna Bryant and 7 others, perished in a tragic helicopter crash on January 26, 2020. We reflect on what he respectively meant to us both within the sports context, as well as symbolically.
Episode 12 – Tyler, the Creator Criticizes the Grammys – Our Thoughts
When reflecting on his win for Best Rap Album, Tyler, the Creator commented on what he feels is a dismissive attitude towards black music and black artists at the Grammys, criticizing the ‘urban’ category distinction. Diddy also shared similar sentiments when he remarked that hip-hop has never been respected by the Grammys.
We discuss the validity and possible counterpoints to those claims.
Episode 13 – Dwayne Wade Supports Son Zion’s Gender Transition
We give our thoughts on Dwayne Wade’s support for his son Zion’s gender transition. More than the story itself, we also highlight our current social climate, ideological control in the media, and the overall lack of tolerance for different, reasonable points of view.
Episode 14 – Coronavirus – Lessons and Opportunities
Things are tough due to the coronavirus pandemic, but we believe that there are lessons that we can learn and even opportunities that can come from it, especially given the economic toll that the virus has taken. We discuss those lessons and opportunities.
Episode 15 – Kyle Larson’s N-Word Incident
NASCAR driver Kyle Larson let the n-word slip during a live stream of a virtual racing broadcast. We discuss the fallout, our opinions on the reasons why this happens, and possible ways to help promote understanding.
Episode 16 – CeeDee Lamb’s Draft Night and the Importance of Good Judgement
During the 2020 NFL Draft, Oklahoma wide receiver CeeDee Lamb attracted humorous attention when a domestic tiff between he and his girlfriend was caught on camera. While much ado about nothing on the surface, this can serve as a great example of the need for good judgement on the part of pro athletes and entertainers, especially when it comes to the women they choose to spend their time with.
Episode 17 – Our Thoughts on Ahmaud Arbery
We give our thoughts on the unfortunate shooting of Ahmaud Arbery and how accountability and self-reflection can help steer things in the right direction.
Episode 18 – George Floyd: Reflections and Solutions
With the world on fire, we discuss the fallout from the murder of George Floyd, and moreover, delve into tangible ways that we can find solutions to systemic racism. This commentary is about SOLUTIONS. There is plenty of content out there lamenting the state of affairs, so there is no need for us to pile on to it. Let’s self-reflect and focus on pragmatism. If you’re looking for ideas in terms of participating in movements that can instigate true change, check out the #blackoutday2020 movement.
Episode 19 – Kyrie Irving Does Not Want to Resume NBA Play to Keep Focus on Black Lives Matter – Our Thoughts
Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving recently expressed not supporting the NBA resuming play via a “bubble” setup at Disney World because he fears it will distract from Black Lives Matter. We discuss whether there is merit to this concern, or whether it actually makes more sense to play in order to keep the focus where he believes it should be.
Episode 20 – Nick Cannon and Why Cancel Culture Has to Go
We discuss the fallout from Nick Cannon’s antisemitic remarks during his podcast and his subsequent firing by CBS/Viacom. We also get into the value of teachable moments, why “cancel culture” is a problem that needs to go away, and why we should be reasonable enough to consider a person’s body of work before becoming cyber bullies who want to cancel someone who has done positive things throughout their career.
Episode 21 – The NBA is Back!
We discuss our thoughts on the long-anticipated return of the NBA after the COVID-19 shutdown. We talk about what we’re each looking forward to, as well as whether there is an asterisk on the season given what has happened. Plus, we talk about how this season, depending on the outcome, can affect LeBron James’ storied career.
Episode 22 – NBA Player Paul George is Clowned for Relationship with Ex-Stripper, and We Talk About Simping
We talk about the remarks that Damian Lillard’s sister made toward Paul George when she involved herself in her brother’s social media back-and-forth with George, who infamously got with a stripper and now shares two children with her. We talk about simping, whether it’s a real thing, and how it has fundamentally changed dating, relationships, and the way men and women interact with one another.
Episode 23 – NBA Player Boycott – Our Reactions
In the wake of the shooting of Jacob Blake, NBA players collectively banned together to refuse play for two consecutive days on August 27 and 28. We discuss the practicality of the walk-off, whether it’s appropriate that professional athletes are being placed on the frontlines in the fight against racial inequality, and how others are being let off the hook.
Episode 24 – What to Learn from Kanye West’s Comments on the Music Industry and Modern-Day Slavery
Kanye West took to Twitter to tweet out several comments on the importance of ownership. He also likened the music industry to modern-day slavery. We discuss his comments, as well as how important it is that black and brown people prioritize the notion of ownership to attain true freedom.
Episode 25 – Is T.I.’s Claim that Women Only Want a Man Who Has Options Valid?
During a recent episode of his podcast “ExpediTIously”, rapper and entrepreneur T.I. asserted that women are only attracted to men who keep other women and have options. We discuss whether this is valid, and the importance of women being honest with themselves so that we can try to retain some semblance of the notion of “relationships”.
Episode 26 – Dave Chappelle Urges Fans to Not Watch “Chappelle’s Show”. Ownership Matters!
During a recent stand-up set, comedian Dave Chappelle took some time to plead with his fans to not watch reruns of his early-2000s sketch-comedy show “Chappelle’s Show” because he does not own a piece of it, and thus is not paid royalties for the work that he created. This prompted us to continue our ongoing conversation about the importance of ownership, and how it is the key to freedom in life. This is also the first episode in which we have a guest contributor to the platform – local artist and friend of the channel Titaness Writes! Follow “Tite” on the channels below for everything she has going on musically and otherwise!
Episode 27 – Domonique Foxworth’s Josh Allen Comments EXPOSE a Problem with the Mainstream Media
ESPN Commentator Domonique Foxworth’s comments about NFL QB Josh Allen’s fanbase are representative of the one-sided climate of social discourse in today’s mainstream media, as well as among the people. The only way things are going to become more cooperative is if ALL reasonable viewpoints, not just those of the social justice variety, are afforded platforms to be heard. BE REASONABLE PEOPLE!
Episode 28 – Let’s Get to the BOTTOM of Cardi B’s Woman of the Year Award
Cardi B was bestowed Billboard’s 2020 Woman of the Year honor, and people had issues with it. While questions over the validity of the appointment are fine, if you have a problem with Cardi B winning this award, then you probably have a problem with a deeper issue in our culture. Let’s talk about that deeper issue.
Episode 29 – Dwayne Haskins’ Failure TEACHES Us the Value of Discipline and Seizing Opportunity
After sustained poor performance, followed by being exposed for having a night out with strippers at an unmasked party, the Washington Football team said enough is enough and released 2019’s number-15-overall draft pick Dwayne Haskins. We discuss the societal implications of his release, whether there are any implications for black quarterbacks at-large, and how this teaches those looking to build something for themselves the importance of maintaining discipline and not squandering opportunity.
Episode 30 – What the Washington D.C. Capitol Insurrection TEACHES Us About Practical Solutions
The January 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol building in Washington D.C. spurred a racial conversation as to the difference in the way that people of color would be treated versus the way that the insurrectionists were treated. For us, this served as a reminder that there are practical ways to approach the conversation around combatting racial inequality, and there are impractical ways to do so. We want to talk about those practical ways.
Episode 31 – Dan LeBatard CREATES HUGE HOLE in Programming After Leaving ESPN
If you’re a follower of ESPN Radio programming, you’re probably aware that commentator Dan LeBatard, after a lengthy partnership with ESPN, has departed the network. I wanted to wait for the dust to settle a bit before opining on what I thought of the landscape of ESPN’s programming slate in the wake of his absence, and the prognosis isn’t great. As a fan of LeBatard’s, I believe that his off-kilter brand of comedy and levity with respect to sports is needed. Couple that with his willingness to call out arbitrary sports rituals that we blindly worship, and you have what amounts to a brand of sports commentary that the world needs more of, and that ESPN will sorely miss.
Episode 32 – YFN Lucci’s Legal Troubles Represent a Larger Cultural Problem with Our Actions, Decisions, and Role Models
Hip-hop star YFN Lucci is now in legal trouble after being arrested for his alleged participation in a shooting in Atlanta that left one man dead. The question isn’t whether he is innocent or not, but why he willfully made the decision to involve himself in this type of situation. This represents a greater societal issue with people of color making similar decisions and clinging to certain aspects of what we perceive to be our culture; decisions that lead to incarceration, and in more serious cases, death. We discuss that aspect of our culture, as well as our thoughts on how to incorporate more balance into our culture so that more of us can lead productive lives, make better decisions AND embrace who we are through cultural pride.
Episode 33 – Gina Carano is Fired, and the Disturbing Trend of Cancel Culture Continues
Most people are focusing on Gina Carano’s poor use of a Holocaust analogy to justify the decision to drop her from The Mandalorian. What is being sorely missed is the point she was attempting to make. That is, we have adopted a culture of acceptance towards liberal points a view and an intolerance towards conservative, more traditional points of view. This imbalance is counterproductive to the notion of free speech and civil discourse, and as a result, Gina Carano has become another victim of ridiculous cancel culture. Poor analogy aside, her overall point is valid, and it is sad to see our society continue to traverse down the rabbit hole of persecution and career head-hunting for those who express conservative or otherwise disagreeable points of view.
Episode 34 – Paul Pierce’s ESPN Firing Exposes our Need to Dial it Back from Social Media
Former NBA player Paul Pierce was fired by ESPN after he went live on Instagram while at a gathering with friends, alcohol, weed, and strippers. Although this continues the fundamental problem of our society’s adoption of moral-policing with respect to people and employees, it also represents how intertwined with reality, and thereby our usage of the medium, that we have allowed social media to become. If we don’t dial back the way that we consume social media, we’re all going to be Paul Pierce at some point in our lives.
Episode 35 – Men Don’t Get It: Why Iggy Azalea’s DM Exposure and Thirst Culture is Our (Men) Fault
The manosphere erupted with criticism towards hip-hop star Iggy Azalea when she put her high-profile DMs on blast, exposing how far men will go to get her attention on social media. Men generally have a problem with the current state of the sexual marketplace and the advent of things like OnlyFans and Instagram, but what we as men need to understand is that this dynamic is one that has been proliferated due to our actions and behaviors. If we want it to stop, we’re going to need to change our behavior.
Episode 36 – Bobby Shmurda and the Threat of a Black Man with Options
The second that hip-hop star Bobby Shmurda became associated with a white woman, it was open season on his character and why it’s a crime against humanity for him as a black man to choose to date out. What’s the real issue with black men who choose to date out? Is it about foregoing our moral obligation to help uplift the race, or is this just an examination of how women need to lighten up and gain a better understanding of modern dating and where they fall in the pecking order with respect to men who have options? Women need to accept that they’re going to have to compete!
Episode 37 – A Guy Creates 150 Instagram Accounts to Beg His Ex to Take Him Back: Why Men Continue to Take L’s
Desperate to try and salvage his relationship, a man went so far as to create 150 different Instagram accounts in attempts to reach her through DMs. After blocking them all, she put out a video exposing the lengths that he’s gone to to try to reach her. At some point, men are going to have to realize that the source of women’s perceived undesired behavior in relation to men and relationships is our own poor decision-making habits and an inability (or unwillingness) to carry ourselves with the dignity and respect that we claim to want them to treat us with. Another L for men everywhere. Thanks, bro…
Episode 38 – Floyd Mayweather Jr. Vs. Logan Paul: Is Exhibitionism Bad for Boxing?
Floyd Mayweather will briefly come out of retirement to fight Instagram and Youtube sensation Logan Paul on June 6 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, FL, marking another exhibition event in boxing. There is a debate taking place in the boxing world as to the merit of these exhibition fights and whether they are good for the sport. Some think they help boxing, while boxing purists are resistant to them, feeling as though they dilute the sport and turn it into a sideshow. If you don’t like the exhibition fights, you can blame boxing for creating this problem. Until the promoters get out of the way and give us the mega-fights that we want, exhibition fights will continue to be the big draw in boxing.
Episode 39 – Kyrie Irving is Making a Mistake By Not Talking Basketball to the Media
During a Brooklyn Nets postgame press conference, NBA star Kyrie Irving declared to the media that he would no longer be answering questions about basketball – something he is contractually obligated to do – because basketball isn’t the most important thing to him and he only wants to talk about societal issues that he is impassioned about. This is a mistake. Kyrie is painting himself as a social elitist who is smarter than everyone else, all the while undermining awareness of his causes and alienating potential allies. People should not replicate this strategy. This is what happens when keeping it smart goes wrong.
Episode 40 – J. Cole Haters Should Take a Chill Pill and LIVE ABUNDANTLY!
When speaking with ESPN, Basketball Africa League player Terrell Stoglin provided his thoughts on J. Cole receiving the opportunity to play for the league’s Rwanda Patriots, suggesting that Cole took an opportunity away from other, more deserving players. Furthermore, he believes that given Cole’s privileged position as a hip-hop star, he doesn’t need the opportunity, and that his spot should have gone to other players who work hard to obtain a roster spot. This mentality is emblematic of our approach to life through the scarcity paradigm. If we want to be successful and live fulfilling lives, we have to stop thinking that one’s opportunity represents something being taken away from us. Success is contingent on approaching life through the abundance paradigm and seeking to establish meaningful relationships that can help to facilitate our own success.
Episode 41 – How Race IS A FACTOR in the NBA Fan and Player Interactions
During the first round of the 2021 NBA playoffs, several negative interactions between fans and players took place involving spit, alleged racial language, water bottles and popcorn. Because the optics are white fans and black players, the conversation immediately jumped to whether race has anything to do with the incidences. While race does play a role in these situations, the question as to whether the fans are racially motivated in their behavior is a different issue entirely. Race does have something to do with this, and it involves an understanding of the current – and historically ongoing – economic climate of America.
Episode 42 – College Football Playoff Expansion: It’s Time to Pony Up and Pay College Players
With the recent development that the College Football Playoff committee is considering expanding the number of teams that make the playoff from 4 to 12, the business that is college football could go from an annual revenue of $4 billion to some insane amount beyond that. The only problem is that the labor force that is most responsible for the success of the sport – the players – don’t see a piece of that revenue pie. It is way past time for college players to be paid what is commensurate with their contributions to this enterprise, and people need to stop being hypocrites and wake up and realize that.
Episode 43 – Why Robert Griffin, III Getting Backlash for Appreciating His White Wife on Instagram is Foolish
When NFL quarterback Robert Griffin, III posted a video on Instagram showing appreciation to his white wife, people naturally went off the handle and resumed the discussion on why it is bad for black men to date interracially. This is a discussion that is getting old by the minute for two reasons. First, as society changes and black people continue to climb the socioeconomic ladder, their dating preferences will evolve along with them. Second, and most important, if black women want to see black men “stay home”, all they have to do is listen to what black men say they want and provide that!
Episode 44 – Deandre Hopkins’ Anti-Vaccine Comments and the Problem with Living in Fear
Star NFL wide receiver Deandre Hopkins is not down with the COVID-19 vaccine, and has gone so far as to question his NFL future in light of his unwillingness to take it. While whether to take the vaccine is a matter of personal choice, your issues with it may reveal the fact that you live a fear-based reality. Living in a constant state of fear is problematic for anyone with goals and ambitions, and if you continue to do so, you’ll never be great.
Episode 45 – What Men Need to Learn from PJ Washington and Brittany Renner
Charlotte Hornets forward PJ Washington is staring down the barrel of relationship disfunction and child support hell after the ending of his relationship with social media star and Instagram model, Brittany Renner. While everyone is entitled to be with who they want to be with, it is nevertheless reasonable to question the judgment of a man who willfully enters into a relationship with a woman who wrote a book detailing her sexual relationships with men in the sports and entertainment industries. I keep saying that the current chaotic state of dating and relationships is mostly the result of men’s poor decision-making habits. If we want it to change, men are going to have to make better choices.
Episode 46 – Why the Onlyfans Sexually Explicit Content Ban Changes Nothing
Beginning in October, Onlyfans will ban sexually explicit content – content that it has become most famous for – in an attempt to de-stigmatize itself as an amateur porn site and become a more mainstream premium content creator space. While some people think this is a win for the good guys, it actually changes nothing because as long as today’s man is willing to line the pockets of women for virtual love, the market will dictate a steady demand for the service. If Onlyfans bows out of the sex trade, another platform will step in to fill the void. As I’ve always said, if you want Onlyfans and social media models to be taken down a peg, men need to stop creating the demand for the marketplace.
Episode 47 – Why Bol Bol’s Break-Up from Gold Digger IG Model GF is a Blip and not a Trend
Denver Nuggets player Bol Bol has apparently ended his relationship with Instagram and Onlyfans model Mulan Hernandez, and the speculation is that he ended the relationship after she participated in a Tik Tok trend in which women admit to being gold diggers for life. Bol Bol may have gotten some sense, but until more men do, occurrences like this will be rare and the imbalance in dating and relationships will continue.
Episode 48 – Naomi Osaka, Mental Health, and Getting the Dirt Off Your Shoulder
Naomi Osaka has been a central figure in the ongoing conversation surrounding mental health. After her U.S. Open third round loss to Leylah Fernandez, Osaka broke down into tears, stating that she would be taking a break from tennis and thus reigniting the mental health debate and the merits of it. Mental health management is a real thing, and for Osaka and others who sacrifice to achieve at the height of industry, I have some advice on how to navigate toxic social media flames that get thrown your way.
