Comedy

“Reclaiming the Shade” is a comedy podcast hosted by friends Ebonie and Brandon. Every week, these two writers get together to act a fool, discuss what’s going on in the world, and throw a little shade.

Episodes

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.

It's the episode we've been waiting for since episode 5. We're back with the second part of our music series! From India.Arie's preachiness to Xscape's and TLC's problematic yet amazing songs, we're going deep into our favorite topic: MUSIC! The episode is mostly focused on the ladies, but we also explore Joe's trash song lyrics and pelvic-thrust R&B. Spoiler alert: Keyshia Cole will get made fun of! (Brandon is 100% responsible for the selection of this episode picture.)

Trust is a peculiar thing. It's great to have but can get you effed up if misplaced. This episode, Brandon and Ebonie discuss the types of people who absolutely cannot be trusted. They also came to the conclusion that one beloved children's show character is constantly in danger and needs to be saved.

Summer is almost here, and Brandon and Ebonie are ready to throw down. Join us as we discuss the joys and perils of the season. Ebonie tries to convince Brandon that he should brave the street rats in order to experience summertime in New York City. She also tries to explain Indian Summer in the Bay (hint, it's not a real summer). And, of course, we have life lessons to dispense: if you see someone run, YOU RUN!
