Appreciate Suggestion

One of my favorite movies growing up was “Annie” (the 1982 version). You bet your bottom dollar I’m not afraid to admit it. Stop rolling your eyes. Don’t be a Ms. Hannigan, that shit was FIRE. I’d stay at my grandma’s house once a month and insist she put that and “The NeverEnding Story” on a loop. I was content. Fast forward 20 years later and I can’t appreciate shit. I mean, I appreciate things but I don’t ever reexamine them. Why can’t we do that as adults? I feel like when we were kids we could watch a movie over and over and over again but when we get older we think we get it the first time around. We think we understand someone’s art while we halfheartedly watch with phones in our hand. Maybe our brains are trying to cut through the bullshit. Maybe we’re not interested because we know it’s a waste of time or maybe we don’t care because we feel like we’ve seen it before. I know my brain does both of those things. Any time someone suggests a new show or movie to me, I’m very skeptical. I guess it depends on who has suggested it (especially if they’ve wasted my time before) but usually I can sniff out why I don’t like their suggestion within the first five or ten minutes. This is a mechanism designed to comfort my brain. By picking it apart, I allow myself a rationalize why it’s a waste of time and get back to what I know I think I like. That last sentence made total sense, believe me. I shit on people all the time for being in their communal echo chambers (the far right and the far left) when I live completely in my own.

I’ve gotten pretty far from Annie in this post. It’s starting to feel like “The Neverending Blog”. Bottom line is I’m going to start taking suggestions more seriously- sans phone in hand.

Episode 63: KC Sosa (w/ KC Sosa)

Episode 63 sheds a spotlight on up and coming musician, KC Sosa. KC is a long time acquaintance of The Relatables and Zack and Dean can’t help but to admire his persistent hustle. The guys may have gotten a lil’ too toasty before the podcast but it was action packed as they inevitably get in to: Trump Talk, KC’s recent viral success, and SING SONG SUNDEE RETURNS. Dean and KC drop hot freestyles while Zack…tries. Listen to KC Sosa’s album “Roze” as it drops Valentine’s Day. Check it out here. Please like, share, subscribe and as always, Stay Relatable!

Hey Everybody,

This is Dean and Zach and we’ve finally released our first episode. We say finally because this has been a long time in the making. For years we’ve wanted to do this. We’ve been listening to podcasts since 2011 and when we heard that a high school friend of ours, CJ Couch,  was releasing his own podcast (Couch Talk), we realized that the excuses we had been making (Zach had been making) were no longer valid. We had the equipment, so all we needed was a place, some time, and a little bit of courage to be honest about the things that were REALLY on our mind. It’s not always going to be funny, it’s not always going to be serious but we’re going to try our best to make it entertaining and most of all, to Stay Relatable.
