    Let's Slay the Dragon

    Let's Slay the Dragon

    Recorded in August 2020, we're republishing LET'S SLAY THE DRAGON because less has changed than more -- and we need a reminder.
    On July 27, 2020, Medicare For All, which SNT is a large proponent of, was voted down. She’s pissed, she’s fired up, she’s calling on Jesus to help us rise up, to help us unite, to help us get to a day of reckoning that says ‘No’ to a corporatist system that has run amok. Through a call to us and to progressive organizations, she makes a plea for Choice, Challenge and Change – that we be disruptors to reform and to revolutionize our entrenched system that does harm. She asks us to look at the evils we must abolish short-term (neofascism in the white house) and the long-term (neoliberalism of our nation) and to slay the dragon that is preventing the change to come. Hello Somebody.

    Let's Get Ella Bakered with Dr. Barbara Ransby

    Let's Get Ella Bakered with Dr. Barbara Ransby

    Our former history professor SNT prophesizes with respected historian, author, activist, intellectual and educator, Dr Barbara Ransby. These two history teachers make an intersectional analysis on where we’ve been and where we’re going by looking specifically at the Black woman’s experience in America and how that affects ALL people. Looking back to our foremothers and sisters like Ella Baker and Anita Hill, Turner and Ransby – bonded in defense of ourselves – present an educational prelude to how we must reimagine society in a fundamental way to see a future that embraces equality across race, class, gender, economics and wealth.

    Let's Over Love with Dr. Cornel West

    Let's Over Love with Dr. Cornel West

    Nina has a philosophically lyrical conversation with Dr Cornel West, author, philosopher, activist and whom she refers to as an “intergalactically known intellectual.”
    Under the guise of comparing the blues to our painful current times, this Blues Brother and Blues Sister get low down and dirty about love – that type of bounce-back love that is needed to heal our current catastrophe, that type of love that the Blues songs encapsulate so well and that type of blues that Black folks have been singing since 1870. This episode will have you pressing rewind – just like any good song – so you can catch that “Doc West” melody, that phrasing, that messaging that will feed your soul in this time that is full of heartache but capable of compassion, creativity, smiles and styles. Get on this train, put your headphones on … and listen.

    Let's Cut the Mic with Joy Marie Mann & Patrick Cote

    Let's Cut the Mic with Joy Marie Mann & Patrick Cote

    Senator Turner (aka “Nina Berner”) talks political parody with guests Joy Marie Mann and Patrick Cote, authors of the book, The Yass Kween Chronicles: Coverage of the First Annual Resistance Forum. With chapters like, “The Caucasity of it All”, “Trickle Down Feminism” and “Make America Blue Again”, these three laugh to keep from crying as they discuss what inspired this cathartic book: the absurdity that is the reality of politics today. Listen in and learn why this book of malarky should be THE stocking stuffer you’re looking for this holiday season.
    Note: While recorded in Summer 2020, to listen now in December is a trip worth taking. #HelloSomebody
