With Love Child by Voodoo Brewery on tap, the Drinking Partners ready themselves for an electric, mighty conversation with Pittsburgh-based Damon Young, cofounder of Very Smart Brothas, an online magazine featuring stories and articles centered around race, sex, pop culture, and current events. With a rapidly growing audience, Very Smart Brothas, and Mr. Young himself, has elevated itself to become a significant and essential media source, one that has found itself on top because of a combination of humor, intelligence, and relevancy. From the opening questions, the men examine issues with thoughtful depth and irreverent wit. Nothing is off limits, from Day’s issues with Steve Harvey to how Mr. Young maintains his own truth while speaking to a national audience. Midway through, the men lighten the gravity to discuss dating and relationships, sharing tales that will have listeners laughing and reminiscing. No Drinking Partners podcast would be complete without a detour through the unusual and off-topic; and this one is no different as the trio argues over how best to make grits before transitioning into an analysis on religion. Stay tuned to hear a classic Drinking Partners exchange as Day remarks, “Jesus is actually a cool ass dude who wore sandals,” and Ed argues, “I don’t think wearing sandals make you cool. That’s a negative mark on Jesus.” To learn more about Damon Young, visit www.verysmartbrothas.com.
