#25: Season 1 Finale - Under Pressure

All good things must come to an end. Bad things 'should' end too but life isn't fair. For the final episode in season one of 'Breaking Atoms', Sumit and Chris let off the last bit of steam in their respective bodies and have yet another moan about the pressure of the social calendar. Think of this as a pseudo sequel to 'The 30+ Effect' episode but with a little extra pepper in the bants. Our hosts shoot from the hips around FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), clout chasing, being tagged in photos...


Bonus: That Ping Ping Ping Mentality with Jazz Rose

A few months ago, Sumit and Chris had the pleasure of sitting down with serial entrepreneur, Jazz Rose of J & C Education to talk about productivity, managing workloads, prioritising tasks and much more. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, the sound quality of this episode isn't up to their usual standards. But Jazz dropped so many gems and the hosts felt like they'd cheating you out of some potentially life-changing content by keeping this episode in the vaults. Just like that,...


#24: Jesus In The 21st Century with Ben Clube

This week, Sumit and Chris are clapping back at all spiritual vampires. They are joined by special guest, Ben Clube, to talk about Jesus in the 21st century. Relax though. There's no offering bowl in sight. It's just some real talk about how Jesus and religion as a whole are seen in 2018. Your man Ben is a vicar in training so he turns the podcast into a pulpit with some insightful commentary about how the Bible influences literature, politics and popular culture as a whole. Leave your...


Bonus: The Price Is Right

Way back in episode 11, your hosts discussed the cost of living and how hard it was hitting their calendars and pockets. They vowed never to let the pressure of keeping up appearances get to them. Well, in a classic case of not keeping the same energy, the boys went out and splurged on two respective nights out. Sumit hit the town to see Jay Z and Beyonce and Chris was ringside at The Royal Albert Hall for WWE NXT. Both give their reviews and feedback on the events with their usual wit and...


#23: No Porno Allowed with Darnell Swallow

Family reunions can be fun. You have to deal with the annoying Aunt and the drunk Uncle but for the most part they’re cool. Oh yeah, there’s always a fight but we family baby. Kiss yo cousin.

#22: My World Cup Runneth Over with Soccer Sanchez

People are sick. World Cup fever has hit the masses and folks have been laid out. They've been fiending for their four-year fix.

#20: A Duppy Called Adidon

Some people like their beef slow cooked. They like it to simmer and broil until it’s tender. The beef between Drake and Pusha T is no different. Shots have been thrown over the years in a plethora of album cuts and mixtape freestyles but the gloves came off last week and it’s been bare-knuckle bangers ever since. Aubrey and Terrence are on it and the disrespect is on Biblical levels. It feels like 2003 all over again. Sumit and Chris love detail but they love conflict too. It’s been a busy...


#19: Everybody Knows A Know-It-All

Some mothers do have 'em. Have what exactly? Know-it-all children who grow up into know-it-all adults. We all spar with at least six and a half people who think they know everything. They talk but never listen. Yes, it’s irritating. One mustn’t front though, you’re probably a know-it-all yourself. Take it personal like Gang Starr. There’s a whole city full of walls you can post complaints at. In the 19th episode of Breaking Atoms, Sumit and Chris, try to dissect the inner workings of the...

#16: Kanye West Doesn't Care About Black People

We like to work to a tight schedule and unleash the dragon on Friday mornings. But the past week has been a madness so we have to switch things up with an early drop. Kanye West is on one. We’re not sure what the ‘one’ actually is but it’s crazy. In the last 24 hours, your man Mr. West said “slavery was a choice”. Fam. What part of the game is this? Harriet Tubman must be turning in her grave like remind my soul. We recorded this episode before the slavery comment but we can no longer...

You know the name! The Breaking Atoms Podcast ain’t a damn thing changed! This week, Sumit and Chris, wax lyrical about the power of names and how they contribute to our personalities, perspective and overall steez.

Things get kinda political when the word ‘nigger’* is discussed. Not only is it still the...


#14: Invasion of the Influencers

A couple of weeks ago, Sumit and Chris had a bit of an impromptu moan on the train. What was grinding their gears on this occasion was the influx of influencers online, off-line and in real life.

#12: Trust The Process

Let's talk about trust baby, let's talk about you and me... Inspired by 'Brain Games' on Netflix, this bite-sized episode 12 finds Sumit and Chris exploring the concept of trust in its many forms. They look at how familiarity and routine play a role in getting us to drop our guards and let people in. It wouldn't be 'Breaking Atoms' if they didn't flip the coin and talk about the other side of the equation including reasons that they themselves don't trust certain things and people. Why is...


#11: The Price of Everything

Up from the 36 Chambers! Nah, not really... but Sumit and Chris are here with episode 11 of the best podcast on road. In this week's episode, the fellas have a natter about the cost of living.

When God created the Earth, he rested on the seventh day. That’s God though. There’s no rest for Sumit and Chris because they were in the lab creating the seventh episode of ‘Breaking Atoms’.

#6: Wakanda Forever

For this week’s episode, Sumit and Chris head straight from the cinema to the studio to share their thoughts about the new Black Panther movie. As per usual, they get down to the nitty gritty of all things Wakanda. Tough subjects like racism, colonialism and slavery get the collar and elbow treatment with no remorse.
