[106] Power Trips / Random Quips

We really would have brought you an episode at the beginning of last week. Honest. But the weather had other plans. Memphis was hit by a storm which knocked down power lines — leaving Faiqa with power for a week! Fortunately all is right with the electrical lines now, and we bring you this episode…

[105] Dear “Dear White People” People…

Yes. It’s been several weeks. We’ll get back on track soon. You trust us, right? We both have watched the new Netflix series “Dear White People,” a 10-part sorta-comedy about students at the fictional Westminster College where, in 2017, the student body realizes that, even on a progressive campus as theirs, racism still exists. How…

[104] “Look It Up Yourself.”

We’re sort of all over the place during this one. Aside from the friendly banter, we talk at first about the recent epidemic of bomb threats called into Jewish institutions — and the surprising suspect who was arrested. Mike talks about his kid’s personal experiences with one of these incidents last month. And then we…

[101] DON’T CALL IT A BAN!

[100] #WhyIMarch

Both Faiqa and Mike went to Saturday’s Women’s March — in Memphis and Washington, DC! It was an amazing experience for both of us! Listen as we talk about what we got ourselves into, what we expected, what we didn’t expect, and what funny/clever signs we happened to see. Did you attend one of the…

[99] Was Streep’s Leap Steep Enough?

We talk about all sorts of things: The Women’s March which Mike is attending this weekend (and of which Faiqa is attending one of 600+ sister marches), Meryl Streep’s acceptance speech for the Cecile B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes, and what happens when parents cut off a daughter financially due to her interracial…

[98] What Happens Now?

Remember how the last episode was all like “Wow! It’s been a long time?” This break between shows was just a bit longer. 🙂 You see — we recorded a show on the eve of the second presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Our show was our impressions of the first debate between…
