Episode 40: New Year, New Me

We're back for our first episode of 2018! In this episode, we discuss current events ranging from Oprah's recent Golden Globes speech to problematic hoodies and y'all's president (because he's not ours). Things were all upbeat until we had to make things a bit dark in the end. But put us on at work, home or wherever you are, and enjoy!

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.

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!
