Barry doesn’t want to do the show, so much so, his audio is terrible (sorry, fans). LaToya, also having a bad day, forces him to do the show because she hopes it improves his mood. As if. Shorter than the show’s typical runtime, they share what they’ve been up to, including insomnia, fatigue, television, and sprinkle in a bit about COVID-19 and Trump vs. Biden vs. Kanye.
Barry has a birds and bees conversation with a very shy and mortified T’Challa. LaToya points out how uncomfortable that convo is for us all. T’Challa keeps it 100 and tells LaToya that he’s bored by her, and Barry points out that her topics for discussion always seem to be steeped in depression. LaToya doesn’t give in to the peer pressure. She can only be her one true and authentic self. Plus, with 2020 being a problematic year, it’s hard for her to find joy.
Is it finally the end of Bigfoot erotica? Is Splash Mountain racist? Has Gone With the Wind returned to HBO Max? Should schools get rid of their resource officers? Is it shrimp or skrimp? Find out the answers to these questions with a healthy dose of Barry and LaToya’s antics. Plus, LaToya takes a break from television, and Barry dines in the hood.
LaToya has hijacked this week’s show by taking Barry’s breadcrumbs in their program guide and making it better. T’Challa isn’t thrilled about this week’s show, and Barry is determined to make what should have been a serious episode and coloring it. From Star Trek to Aunt Jemima, Juneteeth to The Neighborhood, this episode is sufficiently diverse and almost monster erotica-free.
Barry celebrates his BFF on Facebook but is temporarily rebuffed when she doesn’t notice or acknowledge the honor promptly. LaToya isn’t getting enough sleep and has two full-time jobs. T’Challa is luxuriating over the summer and doesn’t want to talk about Mindcraft. HBO says no-go to LaToya’s favorite movie while NASCAR bans the Confederate flag.
The hosts are tired. Is 2020 done yet? From COVID-19 to George Floyd, this week’s episode has an unequal sharing of highs and lows. Both Barry and LaToya are depressed. T’Challa is easing into the summer break. However, the weight of life is truly upon them. No amount of television watching can get them out of the funk. Maybe Barry’s teeth collection will.
Warning, this episode features torrid sex between a human female and a well-hung hominid. Listeners’ discretion is advised. LaToya finally started reading the now infamous monster erotica book and had a difficult time getting into it. She shares her thoughts as well as gives some spoilers. School’s out for the summer, and both Barry and T’Challa are glad. Plus, Barry has something to say about the new Hunger Games prequel, while LaToya continues to watch a lot of television.
For the first time in recent memory, the show featured two guests. It was the return of T’Challa and the welcoming of Draknara. With the added people in the studio, talk, of course, gets political. LaToya is not quite as PC as she should be, and Barry is insistent on her reading Bigfoot Porn. He even goes as far as saying that there is a scenario where he may also write some monster erotica. Plus, LaToya is excited about the show being downloaded over 1,000 times. Barry rains on her parade by reminding her of how many shows they’ve recorded.
It’s a T’Challa-free episode and the hosts take the conversation into very odd places. Barry is looking forward to a visit from Draknara, thirty years in the making. Will it be like the teenage version of himself as he again shares a home with his mother? LaToya downloaded the novel for the Monster Erotica challenge. Will it become a guilty pleasure? Find out who’s exercising and who’s not. Plus, consider how much screentime is enough.
They’re back for another season, and LaToya notes that given the shows recorded without her, she considered not coming back. But who could stay away from this show? Barry refers to an actor solely by their last name despite there being a two acting brother dynasty. He considers changing his writing genre. LaToya agrees to take part in a challenge, and T’Challa again joins the show. Soon it’ll be In the Stacks with Barry, LaToya & T’Challa.
