Dissecting Emotional Reaction (Kirk Franklin & Son)
Sometimes our emotions can get the best of us. An emotion is a complex psychological state that involves a subjective experience, a physiological response, and a behavioral or expressive response. When we heard Kirk Franklin's leak audio, we can identify 2 of the 3 components but can only imagine what was his physical response on the other side of the phone. ONLY GOD KNOWS. Today, the panel dives deep into the water, discusses similar situations they encountered, and offers alternative solutions to promote healthier responses and decrease emotional reactions. Also, visit our website at and listen to D.B. Marshall on the for Wellness Wednesday from 7 am to 8 am EDT - The Urban Sound of Pride.

LBGT Battle with COVID-19
LGBT individuals have a different perspective on some aspects of the pandemic than non-LGBT people, including the media’s portrayal and their own level of safety and concern. They also have different views on COVID-19 risk mitigation efforts. One-third (34%) of LGBT adults say the news has generally underestimated the seriousness of the pandemic (compared to 23% of non-LGBT adults). Therefore, we bring you real-life situations that impacted two of our LGBT co-hosts’ emotional and mental health. Visit our website at and listen to D.B. Marshall on the for Wellness Wednesday from 7 am to 8 am EDT - The Urban Sound of Pride.
