As promised, here is the link to the amazing performance at the Apollo Theater.

In the early episodes of the podcast, guest Keenan Baker shared his love of Kendrick Lamar with us.

2 Hail Mary’s (Our Review of Sister Act 1 & 2)

2 Hail Mary’s (Our Review of Sister Act 1 & 2)

June 10, 2020

The movies Sister Act I & II were pretty much non-negotiable for kids of the 90's so Paige and I have each seen these movies well over hundreds of times. As we are still dealing with the emotional reality of the time we're living in, we thought we would take a look at the world through the lens of these joyful, joyful movies starring a living legend and a queen, Whoopi Goldberg.

Definitely Getting Out (Our Review of Get Out)

Definitely Getting Out (Our Review of Get Out)

June 3, 2020

So luckily Paige and I aren't monsters and we didn't need a podcast to encourage us to see Jordan Peele's Get Out. In light of all that is happening in our country right now, we thought it was the perfect time to discuss this film. Wherever you are, we hope your safe. As promised, the rest of the show notes contain links to various organization that you can donate to and support the end of the retaliation and diminishment of the black community.

More Hair Love (w/ Aisha Alfa)

More Hair Love (w/ Aisha Alfa)

May 27, 2020

Aisha Alfa is a stand up comedian, actor and writer who lives in Los Angeles but whose roots are in Canada and Nigeria. This is our second episode about black hair because there's too much to cover in one podcast and because Aisha's story is so unique. In fact, wearing natural hair and moving to Los Angeles put her in even deeper touch with her Black identity.
