We don't know about you, but we're still feeling that post-Derby glow. Seeing all those big, magnificent animals do their best out on that sloppy, sloppy track has prepared us for whatever life has to throw at us this week. GOD, horses are good.

Suggested talking points: Creamy Dream, Collaberal, Horrible Triangles, Foot Locker Strategy Guide, Houseboats, Batman's Very Tight Suit, Mindfreak Magic Kit

The Greatest Generation Ep 134: Business Casual Station (S6E9)

| 0 comments

When the Entrepreneur rolls up on a pretty basic space station, the crew attempts to gauge if the mining being done there is up to snuff. Unfortunately, questions about "what constitutes life" get in the way of their review, and Commander Data misbehaves again. What's under a Klingon's beard? How many classes does Worf teach? Where did the rocks come from? It's the episode that's not as cute as WALL-E.

Hello Internet! It's time for another in our WEDDINGS series! This time: WHO PAYS FOR WHAT? From the reception, to the officiant, to the flowers, there sure are a lot of costs associated with a wedding. Traditionally, certain parties were expected to pay for certain things. What are said traditions? Where did those traditions come from? Do they still apply to the modern day? And who pays for the fog machine? All this, plus answers to your questions! Enjoy and be sure to tell a friend!

Minority Korner

he moment has finally arrived.... Did Nnekay meet Solange?!?!?! Nnekay breaks down her fabulous night at SFMOMA and how she may or may not have acted like a big ole trash bag... one might say a Trasharella? James also had a glamour night at a very exclusive Marvel private showing! James also talks about his newest obsession: Dear White People (the television show on Netflix). He HIGHLY recommends it! The jury is still out when it comes to Handmaiden's Tale on Hulu- we'll follow that up next week. We also want to congratulate our past guest, Ashley Nicole Black and her show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Samantha Bee hosted Not the White House Correspondence Dinner and it was a HIT. Also keep an eye out for Franchesca Ramsey's new talk show headed for Comedy Central (not VH1 like Nnekay said). Heading into our Korners, Nnekay talks about the Moapa Band of Paiutes Tribe of Southern Nevada who fought against a toxic Coal Plant, which was poisoning their land and their people. It's a successful story about grassroots efforts, looking for the right resources, and never giving up in the face of adversary. In James' Korner, he covers the life and times of Sarah Baartman, an South African woman who was stolen, displayed, and exploited even in death. James was inspired the play Venus by Suzan-Lori Parks (which is currently running NYC). The story of Ms. Baartman may enlighten you to the perception of the black female body and it's objectification which still lasts to this day. We dabble a little into the Korner Kids Playground and talk about some of the amazing things happening there (join the fb group). Also we get into how Nnekay does not like birds, James doesn't like racoons, and how Nnekay may or may not have a trash chariot pulled by Racoons. ENJOOOOOOY!

Tights and Fights Ep. 40: The Passion of Roman Reigns

Payback was on its way to being a really solid show!

There were plenty of smartly told stories in the ring, great moments throughout… and then the House of Horrors match happened. Then the quality went as backward as Bray Wyatt’s tractor. We’ll tell you exactly how we felt in this week’s main event.

And Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman had an amazing main event to the show! But what’s keeping Mike from fully embracing him as a performer? And why is everyone going after the Secondary titles on RAW and Smackdown instead of the world titles? There’s a lot to get to, the Nation can’t wait to go through it all with you!

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Corey Graves’s comments to Tom Phillips

Mike put over The YouTube Series Wrestling Shorts..

Hal put over AJ Styles on Talking Smack.

Guests: 
Heather MacLean

Biz and Theresa are beginning to think our kids are trying to tell use something…like, to shut up. Perhaps the face grabbing, mouth covering and screaming, “No talking, Mama!” is a clue. Is expecting our children to not interrupt reasonable right now or should we be focusing more on the long game? Plus, Biz adjusts her attitude, there is a baby on Theresa’s plane, and Heather MacLean joins to talk about her new YA book, Toward a Secret Sky and her experiences as a mom with a child with Tourette's.
