A few minutes into the episode my mic switches from the usual standalone mic to the built-in laptop, so the sound quality drops suddenly on my audio. Sorry. We just shoot the shit for an hour, mostly about Nas and fried chicken.

This is an episode where we dropped so much game we decided to make it double length. We considered breaking it up into two parts but decided to keep it as it was. We discuss Bree Newsome, the woman who made a name for herself taking down the Confederate flag in South Carolina following Dylann Roof’s shooting, and how in a recent series of tweets she has changed her focus to Black male patriarchy now that she has a platform.
