S3:E2 Fuck You Pay Me
     Here's a little something different were doing on Rodes Live Podcast. I decided to go on a rant about the way I feel about some things.

Time is valuable so this episode is called "Fuck You Pay Me" that's it, that's all people.

S2:23 Humble Pie
    This week on Rodes Live we attempt to get it right with serving up a little bit of "Humble Pie". We have music from Jonnie Taylor and Bobby Womack. There are many Men and young fathers that are in situations out of there control. Sometimes in relationships things look and appear to be one sided whether it's from a family member, sibling or an outsider. Perception of an actual situation must be looked at from every angle if you truly don't know or have the facts in front of you. The courts, judicial system and society automatically looks at a man that walks from a bad situation with shame or as the guilty party. I've recruited audio from "OG New New" and "Fuck Child Support" to be the actual voices for men going through a thing because they're actually policing the situation from inside out. The commentary is things that a lot of women need to hear because its coming from other women. The guest audio is all about accountability, mutualism, right and wrong from the female insight and truths. I've been a victim of some of the situations when it's not beneficial to allow your children to experience things in a negative light between parents. I would like you to share this episode and subscribe to #blackpodcast #podcast #blackpodcasters #dopeblackpods #podcastlife #spotify #blackpodcasts #podcasts #podcasting #podcastersofinstagram #podsincolor #podcaster #blackpodcastnetwork #applepodcast #podcastingwhileblack #blackgirlmagic #applepodcasts #podcasters #soundcloud #blackpodcaster #youtube #blackexcellence #newpodcast #podcastshow #spotifypodcast #blacklove #itunes #podcastmovement #love #bhfyp   (Everything)  (Subscribe to the website).  (Merch and Music)
