Hello there! Have a seat and pull up a saucer! This week is all about TEA! Tea comes in many forms, but it is also served in so many ways! We'll discuss the differences between Afternoon and High tea, and even the different versions of those different versions! You'll learn a little bit about the origins of "tea time". We discuss what to wear, eat and what type of tea to drink! All this, plus even more answers to your questions! Enjoy and would you be so kind as to share?
Happy Pride ya'll! James is confronted with a lot of ugly truths in this episode as Nnekay is dropping earth shattering truth bombs. Is Nnekay going to be an upcoming Actress? We dive into Pride and celebrate and discuss brilliant dream boat Jesse Williams' acceptance speech. James is going to give you a run down of the state of guns in Amurrica, historical shooting massacres, how we look in comparison to other countries, and why guns are so tough to beat in this country. Nnekay is giving us a comic book news roundup of some new series that are uplifting marginalized groups... and some that are not... and will get Nnekay's harsh side eye!
If you've ever used salt for ANYTHING other than making cold french fries moderately edible, you need to listen to this episode.

Hey there Cool Kids! Travis and Brent are both traveling this week, but they still made sure to record you a great episode! Travis visited the NYC Pride Parade and shares a few observations. The Supreme Court just handed down a surprising and important ruling in regards to Texas abortion restrictions. We've got a Post-Brexit Vote update. We also have an update on the ongoing American Gun Control discussion. All that plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy!
Our heroes start to get a hang of the difficult business of repetition as they learn more about Refuge and the events that led the town to such a sorry state. How much catastrophe can they undo in 60 minutes? Certainly they can't make things worse -- can they? Taako burns some spell slots. Magnus goes Over the Top. Merle's evangelism is met with the usual reception.
This week Erin discusses her post Beyonce performance emotions, and Bryan shares the lies and songs he used to con his boyfriend into dating him. Also, the pope says the church should ask forgiveness for the way they treated women and gay people, but thats just a baby step, and Supreme Court justices say hell naw to Texas TRAP laws. Plus Guest Jen Kirkman is here to talk about temp work, bulk shopping at Top Shop, and her new book “I Know What I’m Doing and Other Lies I Tell Myself”
Biz and Theresa discuss the emotional roller coaster that is parenting a two-year-old. Our kids are often intense, clingy, loving, and on the verge of a tantrum. It takes all our energy to stay calm in the face of the hurricane (and let's get real - plenty of times we don't stay calm, and that takes energy too)! Plus, Biz is losing her mind over Band-Aids, Theresa is losing her mind over sunscreen, and no guest this week means we have ample time to indulge in the many ways we're losing our minds over our bananas two-year-olds! You're welcome, guys! Happy 4th! We'll be back in two weeks!

Naomi brings the case against her husband, Spencer. She’s embarrassed by his loud and incessant heckling at baseball games. It’s fun for him and he thinks major league players are fair game. Who's right? Who's wrong?
Submitted by Naomi
“Votto said he was not faking out the kids that waited by the dugout, but instead an adult that was heckling him. Votto held the ball in the air, faked the throw two times, and then walked down the dugout steps and laughed.”
- A quote from this article about Cincinnati Reds' Joey Votto denying a child a foul ball, as a result of Spencer's heckling.
Here's the City Paper comic that the judge quoted in this week's cultural reference:
