It’s two weeks into the New Year, and the hosts feel 2023 will be a good year. LaToya does a lot of talking in this episode, as she’s had a lot happen between recordings. Barry is also in good spirits. The second quarter of the school year has been very good for him. Students appear actually to want to learn. T’Challa is excited about a new D&D campaign he’s in and questions the hosts about their favorite Sci-Fi trope. And, of course, there is a lot of television to talk about.
After an unplanned one-month absence, they’re back. Barry is excited about the New Year and new students while LaToya is ready to hurl herself across the finish line of 2022. T’Challa, super cool as always, does have a question to ask the hosts, and the answer is not Die Hard. Count how many times the hosts try to wrap up the episode.
What starts as a run-of-the-mill conversation turns into much more. Barry, LaToya, and T’Challa spent their mornings before recording the show watching very different things. True to their style, they share it with their listeners. Talk of entertainment turns to talk about sports, and finally, after T’Challa’s insightful question for the hosts, talk turns to people, culture, and equality.
Television and movies. If you’re wondering what the hosts have been watching and doing, this show is all about it. Barry continues to write and watch plenty of TV, LaToya is oblivious and distracted, and T’Challa, at sixteen years of age, remains super cool and aloof. With no final question prepared, T’Challa scrambles to find one. Learn about everyone’s favorite movies as well as the movie that they walked out on.
The entire gang is back together, and they’ve missed each other. The runtime on this episode is on par with what it was like in the early days of the show. To think, we’re only three shows into the 15th season. As they catch up conversation turns to school and what it was like in the old days. T’Challa brings his unique view to what it’s like to be a school student in today’s classrooms. Barry is flustered with many of his students, and LaToya is reminded why she would never be a school teacher. Plus, LaToya is now packing heat and getting old with a larger-sized daily pill organizer.
Without T’Challa, the hosts are left to their own devices. Barry has been enjoying the leisure of his summer break while LaToya burns the midnight oil. According to Barry, he has one more week of freedom before donning his teacher cape. LaToya is hunkered down in her office, working on an emergency project. While Barry continues watching television, going to the movies, and writing, his co-host says no to more than an hour of screen time. Check out what they think of Thor: Love & Thunder and their take on the rumors of what’s in store for Black Panther 2.
T’Challa is back. But don’t get too excited. By the end of the show, he makes it clear how he feels about one of the named hosts of the show. Since the last show, the hosts have been consuming a lot of television. Tune in to hear their thoughts on The Staircase, The Boys, and more. Love is also in the air. Barry is very smitten with his new girlfriend.
Another show without fan-favorite, T’Challa. However, the hosts have been quite busy themselves. LaToya is always working multiple jobs and has no time to read. On the other hand, Barry is also very busy but is relishing in the afterglow of having four of his novels released during the Unleash the Reese promotion period. Not sure what to watch on television? Barry and LaToya are here to fill in the gaps.
With no T’Challa in attendance, the hosts must find a way to do the show. LaToya is reluctant, offending Barry by telling him to record early so she can be done with it. Barry even suggests upping the recording schedule. LaToya shoots down the idea. One and done is enough for her. Barry has several books about to be released in close succession, and he somehow manages to ruin Spring Break by working. LaToya’s husband, K, manages to add some humorous background noise.
After a 2-month hiatus, the show is back with a special guest, K. That’s right, LaToya’s husband Kenrick makes a rare appearance. Since the last episode, much has changed, and just as much has remained the same. Barry is continuing to enjoy his life as a high school teacher while LaToya and Kenrick had a memorable Carnival Cruise and have welcomed a new nephew. T’Challa, cool as always, leaves us wanting more.
