Episode 27: Self-Awareness

We had to take off a week because of that no good Hurricane Irma, but we're back. And this week, we're talking about the importance of self-awareness. We also discuss the unspoken black person rule of cheering for the black person on game shows, award shows, pageants, kindergarten graduations, and parole hearings. We end the show with a special dedication to the joy that Leslie Jones has brought into our lives. Enjoy!

Episode 26: Lifting the Shade

We started this podcast with good intentions. We said we would lift the shade on every episode ... or at least every other episode. But we haven't done that since about 23 episodes ago. To remedy this, we dedicated an entire episode to lifting the shade off people, real and fictional. But we, being the trash we are, couldn't keep it 100 percent positive. Enjoy the (lifting of the) shade.

Episode 25: Reclaiming the Joy

What we thought would be a serious episode about Hurricane Harvey, the woes of the current administration, and the stains of racism evolved into a spirited conversation about how we can find joy in even the saddest of times. Join us as we turn lemons into lemonade and pig scraps into bangin-ass ribs. Also, rebuke the Jheri curl at all costs!!!

Much like R.E.M., we've lost our religion, in a manner of speaking. This episode, we get into why we no longer feel the need to go to church. But while we don't practice all aspects of Christianity, we discuss why we still hold onto certain aspects of it. Also, we talk "Game of Thrones," Ebonie's love of scandalous twitter videos, and the dangers of peaking in middle school.

After a week away, we are back! And more atrocious than ever. This week, we discuss Usher's herpes woes, unprotected sex and black-on-others racism in "Insecure," and how "back like cooked crack" became a thing people say. Sit back, break out your flute, and twerk up a storm, all while listening to our new episode.

What we thought was going to be an episode about the return of "Insecure" turned out to be an episode about people, real and fake, who are trash. R. Kelly, Usher, Issa (at times), and Lawrence. There's trash all around, but at least "Insecure" makes it all funny.

Episode 21: Dirty Cat

John fails in his attempts to keep us in line this episode. To be more accurate, he knew trying to keep us in line was an exercise in futility. He did, however, join us for another episode to discuss the perils of office jobs, embracing life via jet skis, and why voicemail may or may not be that bad. Join us for the shenanigans.

HE'S BACK!!! The one and only John rejoins us on our 21st, or is it our 20th, episode. Here, we discuss a variety of topics ranging from phrases we dislike to the importance of emotions and things Aaliyah may or may not have done. So join us on this hilarious ride and let us know what you think.

Society says once people reach a certain age, they should settle down, get married and have kids. In our most personal episode, yet, we discuss why we will not be confined by society's expectations. Listen as we talk about our views on marriage, having kids, and why we might not be what's best for everyone. Also, we are NOT cuddlers, so do not ask!

Our friendship is nearly ripped apart during this week's episode about the greatness of Disney movies. Listen as we discuss questionable movie story lines, the best films, and why Scar is such a sore subject.
