Facade Podcast

Weekly Dr. B. K. Hotchkins discusses current Hip Hop happenings, how to fit in the skin you in, music, sports and the value of seeing a therapist like he does. Warning, his Nerd does not always translate well so be patient with the intellectual ramblings. Everyone has a person, persona and facade that contributes to how they navigate me, myself and I so learn to negotiate. The show format is "Five Random Topics", "Therapy Exercise", "Either/or, Neither/nor", "What We Not Gone Do", "Talmbout" and concludes with the "Detangle" segment.

Episodes available on Apple Podcast, Stitcher and Spotify. Follow @drbhotchkins and @facadepodcast on Twitter!
