Biz and Theresa clarify for the record that no, we can’t read minds! Sadly, our kids refuse to believe it. Being blamed for not being able to predict what kids want is frustrating and helping kids navigate their disappointment is unrewarding. If only our kids were the mind readers! Wait, then they’d know parents don’t always love being parents. Plus Biz juggles plates, Theresa has an announcement and we welcome back Recommendations Librarian Gwen Glazer of the New York Public Library to talk spooky books!

You can find more from Gwen on Twitter @NYPLRecommends or at NYPL.org/books-music-movies/recommends. You can also hear Gwen on her podcast The Librarian Is In, and on One Bad Mother episodes 163 and 195!

Insecure just ended it's season and the duo can barely believe it. Give that show more episodes, dammit! James watched the HBO documentary on Jane Fonda and was reminded why he loved her so much. Such an amazing life! Nnekay could relate since she watched the recent Quincy Jones Documentary. It's wonderful to honor our heroes while they are alive. Nnekay found a new video game called Supreme Courtship... about dating justices... which is as problematic as you would think it is. In the Korners- James is Getting us pumped for this November with ALL the facts on why it is truly important and necessary to make sure we all get out there and VOTE. He breaks down the Michael Moore Film 11/9 and how this could be the possible end to our democracy. Nnekay has a another great book list for you- this time on how to teach your children about consent and help curb toxic masculinity. Let's get to it!!!
