This week, we're bringing you a vintage episode with our very talented in-house musician, Jean Grae.  She chats with us about being a woman of many hats and why she can't get behind the term "femcee."  Then we try some dating apps - not at all because our love lives could use a lil boost, but instead strictly for, you know, podcast research.  Really.  You believe us, right?

This week, we chat with Emmy and Peabody award-winning writer/comedian Jordan Peele about his directorial debut, “Get Out.”  Spoiler alert!  There are spoilers!  But we try to give you a heads up before, and also, if you haven’t seen the movie already, what are you doing with your life?!?  Come for Jordan’s take on the social thriller as a way to build empathy - especially in America's fucked up racial climate - and stay for his delightful appreciation of the man, the myth, the legend: Reginald VelJohnson.  Plus, shoutouts to nail polish, Marie Kondo, and getting through a long-ass week.
