    On this episode… Quarantino got us feeling DIFFERENT about what we watch on film and television. We get Buried By the Bernard and discuss the diasporadical implications of Judas and the Black Messiah. And Queen Latifah is doing some sh!t we never seen done before. No spoilers, we promise!

    This week’s hot list: Dr. Maxine Mimms and her Maya Angelou story among other thangs. “Wooooow, you’ve changed” said quarantino to everybody, we got new feelings and everything. Black family joy on tv when you can’t get in real life, Daniel Kaluuya out here slaying every interview, Black British actors playing Black American leaders (like all the time, let’s discuss with nuance tho), The Equalizer is a whole Black mom who don’t have time for your sh!t. Shabazz Palaces, the red the black and the green, and moisturized your bod and mad other sh!t

    On this episode…Glue gate is over! We talk about Tessica Brown, Gorilla Glue, and the ponytail that rocked the internet. Trying to keep our pets alive in a pandem, and how the United Nations went anti-Black for valentines day

    This week’s hot list: Whoopi Goldberg’s cheek bones deserve all the awards. Keeping your pet alive is expensive but lowkey worth it. Other Black podcasts you should be listening to. The biggest hair story in history, even the haters enjoyed it. Influencer culture and who deserves to profit off of the internet, the Rona, vaccinations and Black women’s labor stolen. 90 day fiance fatigue, flagrant colorism at the UN and mad other ish.

    On this episode… Are you a Black girl hoarder? We get into the shame of being Black, femme, and messy and the disrespect for domestic labor. Then Ottawa University goes private on Twitter after a racist moment in Black hair. And it’s Black History Month! Let the institutional capping begin!

    This week’s hotlist - Snowed in, in NYC, pantsless on zoom, Girl Scout cookie season! Is hoarding really a big deal? Class privilege, gender and domestic labor, outsourcing vs. slavery, shame & cleanliness, checking our privilege before posting on social media, Black hair in Kansas, and once again braids are political. More voter suppression in America, Fvck yea!

Queen & J are two amazing black queens!! They’ve taught me so much in the period of time I’ve been listening. Please put people on to this dope podcast!

dji7 ,

They’re amazing. Period.

They’re magic. They’re powerful! They’re just everything. They’re my best friends. I email stalk them with random thoughts and I don’t care! They’re my friends!! This show never fails to make me laugh and learn and think and just see things through clearer eyes. Keep up the amazing work queen and Janicia!

Ma'atma Uhuru ,

I wish y’all were my homegirls

I first found out about you two on The Grapevine. I knew then that I needed to hear more, learn more. Then a traveling companion put me on right before the pandemic started, and I’ve been listening to your show faithfully all year. Thank you for the laborious, but necessary work that you both do, really just by existing and letting your beautiful souls shine. I don’t always agree with your takes on political topics, but I know everything y’all say is from a place of true love and care for the Black Community and all it’s people. I can’t wait to hear how you continue to educate and uplift throughout this next and year and many more to come.
