Jozen On The Radio Talking About Erectile Dysfunction

January 30th, 2012 3 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I linked to a post I wrote about my terrible, embarrassing experience with erectile dysfunction. People have asked me why I incriminated myself in such a way, to which I say, Hey, it’s happened, but it’s not happening. You get my drift.

In any case, the post was for a brand new website dedicated to men’s health called The site is a part of a brand new syndicated radio show, called The Dr. Harry Fisch show, which airs every Saturday night from 7 p.m. — 10 p.m.. The show is classic, call-in talk radio with Dr. Harry Fisch, a gregarious, easy-going personality who makes all his listeners feel more like they’re talking to a doctor in a bar rather than in his office. Dr. Fisch has some excellent and valuable information for men, but I encourage women to listen to because it’s something you can share with other men.

This past Saturday, Dr. Fisch invited me to be a guest on his show to talk at length about my post. I can’t say I was too shy to answer his questions and ask some of my own. The most surprising fact I learned was when Dr. Fisch said he doesn’t hesitate to prescribe Viagra or Cialis to men in their 20s.

Below is the stream for the segment on which I appeared. Please take a listen as soon as you get a chance. If you like what you hear, click here to listen to the show in its entirety.

Thank you for listening to the show. If you just so happen to not be tired of the sound of my voice, and are interested in what I have to say about other topics like the State of the Union, the movie “Red Tails,” and “Love and Hip-Hop,” my colleagues at The Root invited me on to their Confab podcast to discuss all these topics.

Here’s a link to hear the show on, or if you prefer, a link to download the podcast for free (the one I’m in is at the top).

The Checkup: Dealing With Erectile Dysfunction

January 13th, 2012 Comments off

Before we get into today’s post, some context…

Not even two weeks have gone by in the new year and a lot of positive things have been happening with this blog. One of them is a recent content partnership I have developed with a brand new website called “The Checkup: With Dr. Harry Fisch” (

“The Checkup” is a website devoted to one of the subjects I am most passionate about: Men’s Health. Dr. Fisch is one of the nation’s leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of men’s health issues, so when he and “The Checkup” managing editor Althea Fung asked if I wanted to be a part of their latest endeavor, I did not hesitate to say yes.

The way my partnership works is once a week, I post a topic of my choosing (and their approval) exclusively on their site. On this site, I will include a brief excerpt of the post running on “The Checkup” and provide a link to read it in its entirety.

From this partnership, some really good opportunities are in development, which I will divulge as soon as things becomes more concrete. I want to thank Althea and Dr. Fisch, as well as my business partner and brother from another, Jermaine. They’re the people who helped put this all together.

If you notice, I have turned comments off here, which will be a regular thing for these posts. My way of encouraging you folks to comment on “The Checkup” should you feel the need.

Now without further ado, a brief excerpt from my debut post on “The Checkup” followed by a link for you to read in its entirety.
