How Donnie J and the Saudis Became Besties

How Donnie J and the Saudis Became Besties

October 8, 2019

The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Bin Salman and 'merica's president can't seem to stop getting backlash for silencing opposition. The poor guys, they just wanna intimidate journalists. We deep dive into why these two rulers are so interconnected.

We reflect on China's 70th, California's new law for college athletes and the "hug it out" culture in police shootings.

Young M.A. drops her new project "Herstory In the Making" and we OF COURSE had to break it all down for yah!

Geopolitics & the Death of Plastic Straws

Geopolitics & the Death of Plastic Straws

September 16, 2019

Who are the real needle movers? We compare Jay Z's activist record to soul legend Sam Cooke's and Kamala Harris stance on crime with Baltimore State Attorney, Marilyn Mosby's. John "the Atlantic Walrus" Bolton is out as National Security Advisor as we do a deep dive into the current geopolitical landscape. 

Forests all around the world are burning, fresh water is drying up and the ocean is dying but hey... we banned plastic straws and Pornhub is planting trees. Yay?

Jay Z: The Black Republican

September 9, 2019

We'rrreeeeeee bacccckkkkkkkk. So much to discuss including Jeffrey Epstein's "suicide", heer cheeto's interest in Greenland and the new "space force". Amin tries to sell us on giving up on manned Mars missions for now and we discuss the future of space exploration.   

We deep dive into the NFL's track record on player safety and transparency (not good, just FYI) as well as Colin Kaepernick's un-co-opted reasons for kneeling. Then, we of course discuss Jay Z's hiring by the NFL and how it affects his already polarizing legacy. 

Also "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance" is the wokest show on Netflix. We discuss why we can't get enough.

12 White Men: The Movie

June 19, 2019

It's our season finale!!! We thought it might be nice to tell y'all about ourselves and what we'll be doing until season 2 (it has been officially greenlit <by us>). What's your dream skill? We talk ours and how important it is to be a lifelong learner. There's a new segment called Plead with the People where we beg humans to stop doing wild ish. 

Amin explains what NARPs and TARPs are. There's mad shade for X-Men: Spray Tan Phoenix. And we FINALLY drop our actor picks for the new Oscar buzz flick:Twelve White Men (co starring a strong but sweet white lady).

Have a great summer everyone!

GMO Food Allergy Crisis and The Drake Curse

GMO Food Allergy Crisis and The Drake Curse

June 10, 2019

Eid Mubarak everyone! India goes off and plants 1.5 million trees and the state of Georgia finishes its food forest. Can we get the environment poppin' again? Amin comes around on GMOs and eats some proverbial crow (steroid free of course). Why do we feel like we get to tell poor people how to spend their money (cuz our ass is high key broke too).

Is the "Drake Curse" real? Can the X-Men enter the MCU after FOX's less than stellar 20 year movie run? Should we applaud HOV for making a BILLIE? We work it out. It takes a while but we work it out.  

Mo Man vs. The Nation

Mo Man vs. The Nation

June 3, 2019

Donnie J AKA Heer Cheeto gets another win after Robert Mueller and his special council gets Thanos snapped. How does this relate to fascism? Like what even is fascism? We break down the BDS movement and talk how boycotting corporations can be effective. Venezuela ranked #1 in the whole world for housing rights so enjoy them apples 'Merica. 

How do you treat yourself in late stage capitalism? How does stillness/prayer/meditation feed you? We need a woosah moment because folks out here stealing articles. Mo Man talks how his article on black capitalism was cherry picked.  

The Complete Failure of Games of Thrones (and why it matters)

The Complete Failure of Games of Thrones (and why it matters)

May 29, 2019

You knew good and well this was coming. Game of Thrones screenwriters Dan and Dave took advantage of their success and mailed in a nonsensical, contradicting, patriarcal, white supremacist trope-tastic pile of basura that has been universally panned by errbody. Why does a show matter this much? What does it have to do with the matrix? We're gonna tell you. Oh boy are we gonna tell you.
