Episode 36: Happy Holidays

It's time to talk holidays. Be it Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, the time is ripe for holiday celebrations. We discuss the highs and lows of the winter holiday season and things we have no time for during this time of year. Spoiler alert, we should probably apologize to Kwanzaa and India.Arie--but we won't.

Episode 35: Unpopular Opinions

In what is probably our most controversial episode yet, we share our unpopular opinions. We discuss people, places and things everyone else seems to love except us, be it certain brands of alcohol; Cracker Barrel, a beloved, but terrible, southern chain restaurant; or "My Black Is Beautiful," an uplifting but corny music video. We also discover who Lil Uzi Vert is. Enjoy!

In the wake of current scandals, we take a look at problematic celebrities. We talk current events and then take a walk down problematic celebrity history lane. From Dr. Dre and his domestic abuse allegations to Brandy beefing with literally everone in her path and Whoopi OK'ing Ted Danson showing up in blackface. So have a listen and see if some of your faves are problematic. Also, WHOOPI, WHAT ARE YOU DOING???

Episode 32: Workout Plan

If we're going to live this life, we want to be healthy while doing it. In this week's episode, we discuss the variety of ways to work toward better health. From swimming to obstacle runs to yoga and traditional gym activities, we explore workouts we've done, want to try and that just aren't for us. AND life tip: you're not going to find the love of your life on Craigslist personals.

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!
