    Bring It Back, TV Used To Be Hella Black
    This week, in the first annual Blemmy Awards, Josh and Tracy look back on the Golden Age of Black TV and honor the best of the best, from the 'Amen' theme song to all of Khadijah’s boyfriends (*studio audience goes oooOooOoOOOOoo*). Then, Tracy sits down with TC Carson, the singer and actor known for playing Kyle on 'Living Single,' to discuss the show, that steamy "My Funny Valentine" scene, how important it is for Black creators to own their work, and more.

    Remember When Girl Groups Were Everywhere? (Feat. Cindy Herron-Braggs)

    Turn the Radio On, Where Have All The Girl Groups Gone?
    This week, Tracy and Josh talk all things girl groups. From the diva-era of Motown to the holy trinities of the early aughts, they debate the biggest and baddest girl groups of all time, and discuss what they have meant for the culture. Then Cindy Herron-Braggs, founding member of En Vogue, joins to discuss their era-defining legacy, and the possible 90s group Verzuz of our dreams.

    Remember How They Tried Mariah Carey and Glitter? (feat. Ira Madison III)

    Remember How They Tried Mariah Carey and Glitter? (feat. Ira Madison III)

    It Should Have Been Bigger, #JusticeforGlitter
    This week...CATEGORY IS: opinions you're scared to tell your friends. Josh bravely confesses his love of Mariah Carey’s Glitter and tries to convert Tracy. They travel back to 2001 to figure out what was going through Mariah’s head at the time, why the movie was so universally panned by critics, and how history ended up shaping the film’s reception. Then, Ira Madison III, TV writer and the host of Keep It, joins to weigh in on how he’s made a brand out of having strong unapologetic opinions and what he thinks of other pop stars that have tried to make the leap onto the silver screen.

    Remember When Yt People Started Dipping Their Toes in Soul Music? (feat. Ashley C. Ford)

    Remember When Yt People Started Dipping Their Toes in Soul Music? (feat. Ashley C. Ford)

    Face Crack! I Thought You Were Black!
    This week, Josh and Tracy revisit musical white folks who somehow scored an invitation to the cookout. Elvis, Bobby Caldwell, Teena Marie, Kenny Loggins, Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, and Justin Timberlake have all made careers in music steeped in the sounds of blackness. Is there a proper way for a white artist to exist in a genre that Black artists originated, perfected, and sometimes weren’t allowed to escape? Is it problematic to call this trend “blue-eyed soul”? Writer, host, and podcaster Ashley C. Ford joins us to tackle these questions, explore blue-eyed soul's cousin: yacht rock, and share a Michael McDonald impression that will make you laugh loud enough for your neighbor to hear.

    Additional Material By: VLADTV, Warner Bros., Loud Speakers Network, Urban One, TK Records/Clouds, Arista Records, Yab Yum/550 Music, John Van Druten, RCA, BMG, Stone Dwarf, Apple, Philles Records, Don Cornelius Productions, Motown Records, Columbia Records, Sony Music, Capitol Records, Death Row Records/Interscope Records, A&M Records, First Priority Music/Atlantic Records, Kedar Records / Universal Records, Roc-A-Fella / Def Jam, South Coast Music Group / Interscope Records, and K.
