Episode 75: Citizen's Arrest (Encore) (12/2017)

With the holiday season comes more awkward conversations with family, so we're bringing you an encore episode of our first ever call-in show where you, dear listeners, share with us how you're talking gender, race, politics, and more with your parents, aunties, in-laws, step-siblings, nephews, and more. And guess what: it's really hard! And messy! And you're not alone! We also got our homie Gene Demby of NPR's Code Switch on the line to talk through the now-public email exchange between Margaret Cho and Tilda Swinton about whitewashed Hollywood roles. It's a vintage beef that highlights the ever-relevant question: when will white folks stop making people of color do undue emotional labor?

Episode 110: Wheatgrass in Your Ass (with Jenifer Lewis) (11/2017)

This week, we bring to you our conversation with living legend, Jenifer Lewis.  You know her from your favorite sitcoms like Fresh Prince, Girlfriends, and most recently, Black-ish, as well as iconic films like What’s Love Got to Do With It? (playing Angela Bassett’s mother), The Preacher’s Wife (as Whitney Houston’s mom), and Poetic Justice (as Tupac’s mom).  She has a new memoir out, fittingly called The Mother of Black Hollywood.  She chats with us about her illustrious career, navigating bipolar disorder, and learning how to properly self-care.  Plus, she shares with us some valuable insight on whether or not Tom Hanks is a black man, and you might hear her sing a song or three with Tracy (!).

Plus, we discuss sexual harassment, #MeToo, and fighting back.
