Christopher got his flu shot, Jeanette...is still TBD. Meanwhile, Christopher's neighbors hosted a community conversation about race last week - lots to be encouraged by with that one. Then there's Kanye West...lots to be discouraged about with that one. And finally, Taylor Swift finally speaks up.
Jeanette has an update on her dissertation and Christopher is nursing a cold, but there's still opportunity to talk about all the insanity and privilege surrounding Brett Kavanaugh, a new study about bias in college admissions for black students and Netflix's Nappily Ever After. Don't forget to get your flu shot!
Jeanette saw Hamilton and Christopher upgraded his diabetes technology. After those pleasantries, Christopher and Jeanette discuss the murder of Botham Jean and ongoing smear campaign, and the the reaction to Serena Williams' standing up against sexism at the US Open.
Christopher got a puppy and Jeanette took a little vacation in Rome. Rather than spend the entire episode talking about positive things in the world, we also discuss Andrew Gillum's bid for Governor of Florida and Nike's newest face of their "Just Do It" campaign.
Fresh off a mini-vacation for Jeanette and a work trip in Baltimore for Christopher, it's time for a chat about the weekend box office success of Crazy Rich Asians, conflicting emotions around Omarosa, "The Talk", and a recent report from E:60 on the St. Frances Academy football team.
After a quick catch up about 23 and Me results, holding audience with the Queen, and health social media habits, Christopher and Jeanette discuss black pastors supporting Donald Trump, LeBron James opening a new school in Akron, and the importance of Crazy Rich Asians opening in theaters.
With Jeanette super busy, it's up to Christopher to touch on the beef between Daily Show host Trevor Noah and the Ambassador of France.
In an ongoing quest for opportunity and action, Christopher and Jeanette discuss the ongoing saga that is the current Administration's policy of separating families, various actions that will result in having the police called on people of color, and the racial diversity of Brazil and how international star Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior fits into the conversation.
With Christopher in Orlando for work and Jeanette in Nashville for family fun, the plan was for a short episode. You can look at the timestamps to see how that went. Christopher shares his recent published research on diabetes and aging, Jeanette talks about meeting Freedom Riders, and somehow Blue Bell ice cream found a way onto our list of discussion topics.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! Let's chat about the newest exhibit in the National Museum of African American History and Culture's newest exhibit, "Watching Oprah: The Oprah Winfrey Show and American Culture". And, we're almost finished going through Vice's 100 Ways White People Can Make Life Less Frustrating For People of Color. There's a lot to talk about.
