THE BROWN LIQUOR REPORT was birthed at the intersection of friends reuniting over heated and humorous discussion about politics and pop culture, chicken and liquor. It has quickly evolved from just an innovative way to catch up and share thoughts on hot topics, to a hot weekly podcast with an ever-growing following. It has emerged as a unique voice for Generation Xers who find themselves straddling ratchet and responsibility. It is the podcast for those who want to learn more about social justice, pop culture, and politics while enjoying the best 90’s hip hop beats and a pour of their favorite vice, free of judgment.
Ep. 203 - What to the Insurrectionist is the 4th of July?
Greetings and salutations, friends of the pod! This week we talk about the roller coaster week that was. We had highs from Nikole Hannah-Jones telling UNC "thanks, but no thanks" and taking her talents to Howard; and the lows of Bill Cosby's release from prison and lighting the TL on fire with his apologists. All that and more, this week on the Brown Liquor Report. #DontStopListenListen
Ep. 202 - Critical Race Theory Stole My Lunch Money
Greetings and salutations, friends of the pod. This week on the show we shot the shit about actual Critical Race Theory and not what the GOP is whining about. We also celebrated the Blackest Olympic Trials because to quote a Saint Helen: "We are everywhere you think we aren't." All this, and plenty of whisky, on this week's Brown Liquor Report.
