It’s you got Kwzaa’d 4! Kwanzaa is next week so we are going to dig into the vault, Nnekay is back, for our annual Kwanzaa special. This is fun every year!  If you’ve been with us before: how much do you remember about Kwanzaa- will you ace the Kwanzaa quiz this year? We go over the Seven Principles and Seven Symbols of Kwanzaa along with it's history, so you can know everything you need to know to celebrate this dope ass African American holiday to connect, rejuvenate, and empower your family, community, and self before the new year! We are going into 2020: it’s A BIG year for us in the US and we don’t just mean because all of the Marvel and DC movies being released next year are female driven, but it’s an election year, the fate of our democracy hangs in the balance and we need us as unified, calibrated, focused, and ready than ever. Plus Brandy or Monica, and Ashanti #notmyprincess. At the top of the show we have a PSA for Georgia and Wisconsin registered voters. Plus impeachment rally, and it looks like 45 has indeed been impeached!

So much to discuss this week as Glory rejoins the podcast. Kamala Harris drops out of the primary race, there’s going to be an Aladdin spin off- but not on the character you think of or remember, and did the Golden Globes snub women and people of color this year? You can bet Lizzo’s thong she shook at the Lakers! OK Boomer has ignited the generational divide. We look into and debate its merits, as we look into the meme and hashtags origins, highlight noteworthy Baby boomers, define generations, look into how a concept called “presentism” helps to recclye these age old feuds between the generations. The Miss Universe pageant happened, Glory didn’t watch it, but she has notes and insights as another Black woman snatches a crown through victory. And one of us rewatching Friends...

The first part of the Impeachment Hearings have been held by the House Intelligence Committee and our heads our spinning! It was a lot of important information that is setting the ground work for moving forward, and what exactly is all the bru ha ha- so we have Ben Randle here, our Minority Korner Resident Political Analysis Scientist, to help us break it all down, key points and takeaways. He's braved the weather to join us! The holidays are coming up and you might need some talking points and it's our duty to be educated citizens of the United States. But first, since Ben is also our Resident Madonna Expert and we talk her latest concert. What is proper phone filming etiquette at a concert? 10,000 hours is it really a thing to become an expert- Malcolm Gladwell may have proven it? Also James is becoming a painter? By the end of the episode you will have a clear grasp on all things impeachment, the intentional confusion by the Republicans stops here!
