Episode 62 - This Is The Time Of The Dorky White Guy
In this episode of The Chris and Andre Show, the guys start things off addressing the killing of Duante Wright and try to figure out how we can move forward in America with an effective solution, jump online to talk social media and the body positivity movement, then vear into pop culture to talk about recent fashion trends and their own insecurities when it comes to dating.
(00:00:48) Life - The recent death of Daunte Wright at the hands of police in Minnesota is on the guys’ minds tonight, along with the slew of other tragedies that have happened across the country in the past week or so. Then they move on to cover the traffic stop of Lt. Caron Nazario, share their frustrations with the fanatic 2nd Amendment advocates, and refute the argument that most cops are good and it’s “just a few bad apples” who break the laws.
(00:42:01) Politics - Tucker Carlson thinks white people are being replaced, so the guys talk about how crazy that theory is, and a recent conversation with his son led Andre to realize something about legislation and social norms in America.
(00:49:37) Social Media - Somehow, the guys get onto the topic of Body Positivity with Andre expressing confusion over the movement and Chris doing his best to explain and defend it. This leads to a discussion of the role of social media and the American healthcare system.
(01:04:55) Pop Culture - The guys continue their previous discussion by examining the current fashion trends that seem to be popular including Athleisure and sweatpants, “bunny suit” pajamas, and blankets out in public.
Chris completely forgets the name of a movie and derails the podcast momentarily, but they get back on topic discussing the cultural differences associated with weight and health. The topic of fashion comes up and the guys admit to owning skinny jeans, Andre says his wife buys all his clothes but makes fun of Chris for having his girlfriend help him pick out a suit.
Chris takes issue with modern-day dating, Andre blames dating apps, the guys talk about what they find to be the key to building long-lasting relationships, and share how simple and insecure most guys actually are by giving real-world examples from their past.
(01:48:15) Closing Thoughts - The guys lay out the topics they might discuss next week and how/where you can listen to the podcast. Don’t forget to check out our new YouTube channel (if that’s not where you’re reading this already) and please like, share, and subscribe!
