    The conversation begins with a discussion of the Domestic terrorist plot for Michigan militia to kidnap the MI and the VA Governor.  The conversation continues to review Torey Lanez being  brought up on charges for the Megan Thee Stallion shooting and is this a first step in “protecting black women”?  The Oath Keepers “keeping peace” at the polls. Should this be allowed or is this outside the lines (13:35). The real question of the week is, are you getting the new iPhone even without the new charger (15:00)?

    There are a litany of WTF’s to go around and digresses into a possible Bestiality conversation with DTTP(1:02:00).  We then take a listen of the Bill Burr SNL soliloquy around white women taking advantage of the Woke movement. A new segment of hypotheticals starts with a treatise on “being the bigger person” (1:10:00). Is it practical or some New Testament philosophy that we have passed down through the ages. 
     The conversation turns to submission for Young Jeezy & Jeannie Mai and the flack that comes along with that decision (1:18:00). Help us understand the experience for US… We as the Vexed Intellects feel like we are better off with women in our corner.

    Leading From The Front

    Leading From The Front

    On this week’s episode the gentleman of the Vexed shout out leading from the front, if you can imagine that b.s. from the Oval office.  

    In leading from the front they discuss the failed talks of stimulus part 2 (5:37), a waste of tax payers dollars taking on the Netflix movie cuties (6:37), the dumpster fire of 2020 & ICE (8:08), transgender rights (10:02), and Youtube thotting (12:02).  

    Of course we represent for the ladies in U Glo Girl from astronauts, to tv artists and senior martial artists kicking butt. A special RIP to Bob Gibson a man amongst men and Bro. Thomas Byrd, and Eddie Van Halen. Thoughts and prayers to Ananda Lewis with a reminder to go get your mammograms (25.01) and Chrissy Teigen with the loss of their child this week. 

     The question for the day is “Why can’t we lead with love”?  Big shout out to them from truly leading from the font with very important messages for our women.  Shout out to all of the states seemingly getting it right; Gavin Newsome with reparations and Michigan re-sentencing all juveniles that have been given a life sentence. A WTF and Florida man segment that you have to hear to believe (33.00 & 36:00 respectively). 

    The #Proudboys co-opting the hash tag promoted by agent orange (40:00).  We then digress into signs that we won’t date.. David Guetta complains about Madonna not working with him because he is a Scorpio and moving to Kris Jenner and a sexual harassment suit form one of her previous bodyguards.  The conversations digress to Subway’s bread being considered cake and a conversation about “length”.  

    Is travel bragging a thing that needs to stop (1:03). We revisit agent orange testing positive for Covid from the White House super spreader event and the antics that have come in the aftermath (1:17).  Supreme Court Thomas and Alito attempting to overturn the decision around same sex marriage (1:31).   

    Finishing this commentary with another instance of murder of Jonathan Price by the police in Texas. The underlying messages of today are take care of your health and liberate your VOTE!!  



    Please get out and vote.

    Sh*tshow

    Sh*tshow

    Welp... it’s another week on the vexed intellects where we are just plain ole vexed.

    In reality you know why we’re here... the “shit-show” that was the presidential debate. (1:26:35)  The guys muster up the levity to discuss some other topics including, a convenient post office address glitch (07:23), payout for the victims in the Vegas shooting (9:47), Mark Cuban helps Delante West (25:41), allegations of mental instability leads to a conversation where they say “crazy” sex is the best and does that apply for women? Sex world records (34:41), reused condoms (40:20) and when does sec count as sex?

     The conversation turn political again as they discuss the Kentucky's Attorney General and his criminal activities (1:04:00), Trump only paying $750 (1:15:00), and a quote to sum up the debate. 

    “A wise man should never argue with fools ‘cause at a distance you can’t tell the difference between the wise man and the fool...” 

    The summary of the night Stand back and Stand by... #GetVexed and Enjoy!

    Hopeful but Doubtful

    Hopeful but Doubtful

    On today’s episode the Vexed Intellects are joined by an perennial fave Tall Paul aka the Sultan of the Swats. 

    Upon the recording on Tuesday the gents were Hopeful but Doubtful on a myriad of topics ranging from Justice for Breonna Taylor and a righteous replacement process for the notorious RBG (RIP). Justice deferred seems to be a theme of the week where politics are the most important card that can be played. 

    This lack of fairness and truth is reinforced when CEO’s don’t understand black talent and 45 issues more bans on diversity training. The fellas look at the bright side representing the real men of genius as Deion Sanders takes the reigns at JSU, MJ gets into Nascar signing Bubba Wallace with the hope of bringing his championship ways to the oval track, and a shout out to Michael Bloomberg seemingly playing the long game for the 2024 election with his support actions for the community(38:14). 

    The conversation takes a personal and serious turn when they are prompted by a new story of a Doctor unfortunately being shot due to orgasm during a prostate exam (44:42). The moral of the story “go get checked out” because the fear isn’t as important as knowing your health status. 

    The show is rounded out by Ty Lawson’s take on ‘cakes’ (1:02:00), two new cross-racial dolezals (1:15:00), Mitch McConnell and the repubs hypocrisy (1:18:40) and love after lockup.

    Hotech, Hookahs, and Tummy Teas

    On this week’s episode the fellas are joined by Ramona Jackson aka “The Bourbon Bohemian” as they take the opportunity to celebrate Naomi Osaka, Nikki Porcher and the other You Glo Girl nominee’s that will make you LOL like they did(33.33). 

    The conversation continues with a political spin and they discuss Andrew Gillum’s (1:11) less than interesting revelation and the TransSatan anarchist that won the republican nomination for Sheriff (1:07). 

    The show wouldn’t be complete without a nod to Michelle Obama’s relationship advice(1:14) and the “WAP” that got the ring but couldn’t make a happy home (1:17). 

    They round the show out with discussions on All Buildings Matter (1:26), White on White Crime (1:37)and the influence of Hip Hop on the current political landscape (1:40).
