    T’Challa Returns: Three’s a Crowd

    T’Challa Returns: Three’s a Crowd

    T’Challa is back. But don’t get too excited. By the end of the show, he makes it clear how he feels about one of the named hosts of the show. Since the last show, the hosts have been consuming a lot of television. Tune in to hear their thoughts on The Staircase, The Boys, and more. Love is also in the air. Barry is very smitten with his new girlfriend.

    Lazarus Staircase: Dr. Oh So Strange

    Lazarus Staircase: Dr. Oh So Strange

    Another show without fan-favorite, T’Challa. However, the hosts have been quite busy themselves. LaToya is always working multiple jobs and has no time to read. On the other hand, Barry is also very busy but is relishing in the afterglow of having four of his novels released during the Unleash the Reese promotion period. Not sure what to watch on television? Barry and LaToya are here to fill in the gaps.

    Unleash the Reese: Slap Heard Around the World

    Unleash the Reese: Slap Heard Around the World

    With no T’Challa in attendance, the hosts must find a way to do the show. LaToya is reluctant, offending Barry by telling him to record early so she can be done with it. Barry even suggests upping the recording schedule. LaToya shoots down the idea. One and done is enough for her. Barry has several books about to be released in close succession, and he somehow manages to ruin Spring Break by working. LaToya’s husband, K, manages to add some humorous background noise.

    DoorDash Prescription: Mardi Gras Cruise

    DoorDash Prescription: Mardi Gras Cruise

    After a 2-month hiatus, the show is back with a special guest, K. That’s right, LaToya’s husband Kenrick makes a rare appearance. Since the last episode, much has changed, and just as much has remained the same. Barry is continuing to enjoy his life as a high school teacher while LaToya and Kenrick had a memorable Carnival Cruise and have welcomed a new nephew. T’Challa, cool as always, leaves us wanting more.

    School is a Prison: Cruising into 2022

    School is a Prison: Cruising into 2022

    Birthdays. Christmas. Television. Oh my! It’s a new year and the hosts are excited to share their 2021 memories, some more pleasant than others. It’s another farewell to Voldemort, an almost sexless year, and yes, we’re just talking about LaToya. As a whole, the hosts are doing well and watching a lot of television and reading. They meander a little into politics and Omicron and let’s not forget Bigfoot porn.

    Latin Flavor: A Young French Twist

    Latin Flavor: A Young French Twist

    The dream team is back together at last. T’Challa joins the show only to learn that it’s now only a monthly occurrence. The team believes that this recording schedule will make them all more committed to the show, especially for the reluctant LaToya. As always Barry tells us about what he’s watching and he also shares his Spotify year-end statistics. T’Challa shares his and LaToya remains committed to her iTunes library. And while they may be old enough to be their parents, Barry and LaToya share some of their secret celebrity crushes.
