Episode notes

It’s a double guest co-host whammy with Glory and Moury back on the podcast! Glory and James jump back into their conversation about Insecure this time focusing on actress Amanda Seales, her chameleon like performance, being on The Real, and why isn’t she catching on? Ya’ll sleeping on Amanda Seales! Zoom has taken over everybody’s lives from the Kansas City Supreme Court to our Birthday Parties, and Trivia nights, but they’re getting out of control and we’ve got some tips for our new lives on Zoom. Why is Kim Kardashian James’ hero? It’s not because she slapped one of her sisters on their show, now in it’s 18th season. She’s doing something dope! And Glory is here to tell James which sister got slapped. Which European country is also seeing attention brought to the Black female mortality rate? Moury is back to give us some FUBU skin care tips, and recommendations, with skincare founded by POC folks FOR us melanin proficient folks. Also she lets us know why most sunscreens don’t really rub on our skin.  In the age of Zoom calls we all deserve to be looking our best. Glory is going to give us our “This Week in History,” about Gaybraham Lincoln. And her main event we are going to get the full timeline of the age ol Ja Rule v 50 Cent Feud which opens up a can of worms: is JLo just a glorified backup dancer? Would JaRule have a career if it wasn’t for DMX going to prison? Would Ashanti even exists if Aaliyah was still alive??.. is she really a “true” talent as Glory put it? What was the REAL reason Christina Aguilera couldn’t make friends in the Mickey Mouse Club? And just how many times has 50 Cent punked Ja Rule? And is this feud just because they’re actually: in love? So many questions, and we have answers… to some..
