It’s been far too long since I’ve posted anything – will be honest, I’ve been devoting attention to my personal blog and have been neglecting this one; partially the reason behind that is because I’m not as comfortable writing about music (strange as that seems) as other topics.
I promised in my last podcast and a few tweets that I would review the new podcast from Toussaint Morrison called Double Consciousness.
I will be up front – this podcast is not for me. I thought that because I love what Toussaint brings to the table musically, that adding his podcast to my subscription list would be fun. I appreciate the content and discussion topics that he and podcast partner Joetta talk about, but I found the episodes to be a bit too long for my personal preference.
That said, this isn’t a podcast I would completely abandon. I think that they have the makings of a great show, discussing important topics (and some not-so-important topics sometimes) from their perspective. And to clarify, they’re talking about issues from a black person’s perspective, which is still relevant today despite any social progression we’ve made around the world.
I think one of the other reasons the podcast doesn’t resonate with me fully is that I am a white male so it goes without saying that I can’t fully relate to their discussions.
However I still recommend giving it a listen and see if it’s up your alley. It’s available on iTunes and most other podcast platforms.
