“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.

Episode 31: End of Days

In what could have been one hell of a downer episode, we were able to reclaim our joy while talking about the apocalypse, California wildfires, the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Mayim Bialik's abysmal article in the New York Times, victim blaming, and the busted monstrosity that is Sunny Anderson's wig collection. We also examine Toni Braxton's relationship with Birdman. No matter what you do, DON'T TRUST ANYONE WITH FACE TATTOOS!

Episode 30: Banana Slugs

We had the audacity to do yet another show about sports. Thank God our boy John graced us yet again with his presence to help us out. We look at the humor and, misfortune, in sports teams names, from the Lugnuts to the Savages and the Banana Slugs. And it wouldn't be our show if we didn't also cover snap-era hip-hop, Living Single, and high STD rates among the elderly. Enjoy!

Episode 29: Take a Knee

We barely follow sports yet foolishly decided to discuss them. Thank God we got John--BFF of the show--to join us for more good times and to lend his sports expertise so the two of us didn't sound like complete dummies. This episode was a heavy one. With mass shootings, natural disasters, protests, and other not-so-fun things going on in the world recently, we knew we had to discuss them. But we're still us, so we had to find humor where we could. Sit back. Enjoy. Subcribe. Share.

Episode 28: Oh Happy Day

In these turbulent times, what better way to go into your weekend than with our episode about nothing? In what was supposed to be a show about autumn, we talk about the fall and winter seasons, the oddity that is the South, tales of cotton picking, and more. But probably the most important thing we discuss is our undying love of the Sister Act series, especially the sequel.

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.
