Baby Shower


Hello Internet! We've got a little bundle of joy for you... a new episode all about BABY SHOWERS! People have been celebrating impending babies for a real long time, but how has it changed? Where did our modern day traditions start? Why do so many people think men should be excluded? What's the deal with presents? When do you throw a shower? Can you throw one for yourself? We have answers to all these questions and more! Enjoy and please share.

Minority Korner

James is back from his amazing Palm Springs Spring Break... in October?! He witnessed first hand the invasion of the Bachelorette Parties in Gay Clubs... THEY'RE TAKING OVER, and Nnekay just CANNOT handle it. She would much rather celebrate Helen Keller. Nnekay is no longer a Bridezilla... but a GUESTZILLA, ya'll betta watch out, because she's coming to tear up your NEXT wedding. In our Korners, James is educating why your camera and film miiiiight just be racist... and why is there a woman named Shirley Cards involved... and is she wearing black gloves?! Nnekay discusses how privatized prisons might be coming to an end soon... but while this is a cause to celebrate... we still have a ton of work to go. In Quizelet Korner will Nnekay be stumped by James' questions this time? We cover NBC's Mail Order Bride, Solange Knowles, Britney Spears, Shonda Rhimes, and the transgender community. Enjoy the show!

One Bad Mother
Janet Stickmon

Biz and Theresa discuss how major schedule changes, like dropping naps, later bedtimes, and new morning routines, are natural and unavoidable...not to mention mildly traumatic for us. Is it strange that our kids can roll with these changes better than we can? Nope. They don’t rely on a set schedule to organize their lives like we do! Plus, Biz feels all alone, Theresa is still pregnant, and we talk to Janet Stickmon about her essay series To Black Parents Visiting Earth: A Love Letter-Life Guide to Raising Black Children in the 21st Century.
