    Happy Friday aunties/uncles! 

    This week, in our grown segment (4:00) hosts Bridget Kelly and Mandii B talk about the metrics society uses to rank the “success of marriage “(7:00). Is it fair to compare marriage to a college curriculum and eventually “graduate” to another phase of your life (including divorce)? Are millennials giving up on relationships too quickly? 

    In our honest segment the ladies discuss the latest updates about Brittney Griner and the recent assault/murder of Shanquilla Robinson (30:20). Later, they dissected the Grammy nominations and the surprising / not so surprising results of the R&B nominees. 

    In the slightly toxic segment BK & Mandii B analyze Lil’ Scrappy & Momma D’s relationship leading them to discuss their childhood and needs that were unmet (1:13:00).

    Freshly Squeezed (1:35:00):Girl - Destiny’s Child Bestfriend- Brandy  My Dawg- Lil’ Baby Down for my N’s - C Murder

    Crystals & Jameson Part 2 Feat. Blue Telusma

    Crystals & Jameson Part 2 Feat. Blue Telusma

    Happy Friday See The Thing Is family!




    Last week's episode was too good, we couldn't dive into our freshly squeezed segment. So, this week, your hosts Bridget Kelly and Mandii B give you the second part of our 2-part interview with writer, on-air personality, and friends with benefits Blue Telusma.

    The ladies break down the new 21 Savage and Drake collaboration album "Her loss" and conclude... rappers are the new mean girls (11:00). Did our favorite toxic king Drake take his disses a little too far on this album or do rappers simply need a hug (36:00)?

    Later the three discuss adult friendships (57:00) and the importance of understanding friends for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. How do you show up for the "struggle friend"? Why do we confuse having a courageous conversation with a friend, drama? Let's just face it...some friendships just don't age well and it's okay to let them go.

    Speaking of, this week's Freshly squeezed is dedicated to songs that did not age well (1:14:00). Enjoy and DM us to share some of the songs you think didn't age too well.

    1:11:00- Bug-A-Boo- Destiny's Child

    1:12:00- Who Let The Dogs Out- Baha Men

    1:14:00- Thong Song - Sisqo

    1:16:00- Boom Bye Bye- Buju Banton

    1:20:00- Addictive - Truth Hurts Ft. Rakim

    1:21:00- Scrubs- TLC

    1:26:00- Thrift Shop- Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

I love STTI ,

I love STTI

I’m such a huge fan of the show! I love you girls sooooo much! I’m listening to episode 152 the marathon continues & I just wish mandii would let Bridget talk about her engagement I felt like mandii kept playing music or cutting her off & then she talked about her new teeth. I felt like there was a longer conversation about mandii’s teeth than Bridget’s engagement. Overall your podcast is great! I always look forward to Tuesdays & Fridays!

Can’t wait to see you become the black Oprah that’s actually mixed, but looks like a Puerto Rican, Bridget. You’re special.

Sienna344 ,

Love this pod but…

I have been listening since day 1 and I truly get excited every time I get a new episode notification. HOWEVER - Mandii can tend to be a bit dismissive in the presentation of her point and consistent use of the phrase “Not only that” or “Not even that”. That feels like a shut down to the other person’s point who 9x out of 10 is guest. This episode specifically was a fave UNTIL the the Twitter conversation. Mandii we love that your creating businesses and truly becoming a girl boss! But again you were dismissive of the hardships and plight of the people who were actually laid off. Your inability to acknowledge felt a lil off
