This is America?

In this episode, Major and Lise talk the happenings around Nashville, Lise's favorite sandy spots in Cali, and a South Memphis vet gives back to baristas and a future Tiger secures all the bags in Hardly Home Always Reppin'. In the Bold and Baeless, 2Chainz gets on one knee and on Lise's nerves, Cousin Tiffany needs media training, Fab goes to court and Emily B accompanies him, and more. Jhene and her mini-me is adorable, Tristan is still trash and one of the Mowry twins welcomes a girl in Baby News. Lebron's reign continues, Chef Curry is back in the kitchen and Charles and Shaq on tv talking like its just them in Balls and All. For Politikin', one of our girlfriends talks with our favorite first lady and Nashville had some historic elections. The ladies talk their Met Gala favs and flops, Jada's vibrant red table, and more in What Had Happened.

Let's Talk About It Sis covers recent stories around police being called on Black and Brown folks for having the audacity to inconveniently exist and whether this really is America.

People treating all millennials like kids burns Lise's biscuits. Major's Love Offering goes to a literary icon who died telling our stories. In a galaxy far, far away, Cardi's voice is everything for the Geek Corner. And mamas are the GRITS We Love.

Podcast cover

We got a right to be mad. In this episode, Major and Lise discuss the presidential election results, its aftermath, the new Kardashian Dream, Even Stevens got BARS, Joe Biden continuously proves to be a rider, Dave Chappelle was the cocoa butter for our soul, and Oprah is not beyond reproach. For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk sexual fluidity, bi-phobia and our adventures in sexual orientation. And a GRITS We Love gets proper respect since y'all put her over a trap beat.
