It’s time for some turkey, well, the turkey has already been eaten. The hosts return to the show discussing what they’ve seen and what they’ve been up to in the almost month since they last recorded a show. T’Challa is still absent, a bummer for us all. On this show, the hosts address the inconsistent recording of their weekly show. Moving forward there is a new monthly format, the second Saturday of each month. Barry deleted and then brought back his website (.net sites are still not a thing, Barry). And LaToya is still trying to find a work-life balance.
LaToya considers if the show should continue. Barry is writing a new book. T’Challa, absent from today’s show, has his learner’s permit. It’s been over a month since the last show and the hosts catch you up on what you’ve missed. With his KISS deep-dive complete, Barry shares an album with LaToya which she reviews on the show. Barry isn’t sure who’s up next, possibly Boyz II Men while LaToya plans to listen to all of Lianne La Havas’ albums.
T’Challa has returned but he’s busy working on a project to pay too much attention to the show. Barry and LaToya discuss what they’ve been watching. LaToya went to see her favorite sports team play and Barry is sad to see this semester go by so quickly. And on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 the hosts reflect on life before and after the tragedy.
Today’s show miraculously happened! Barry is enjoying his summer break by writing two books while LaToya is still acclimating to her new 9-5 job. T’Challa is relaxing and sleeping in for the summer. LaToya admitted to thinking of Barry while she was in the shower. Barry ranks the best Batman actors of all time. Plus, LaToya accepts life without sex and finally contemplates what it means to be of African descent.
Welcome to Season 14. Despite another late start, the show is back thanks to T’Challa’s persistence. Neither of the hosts felt up for recording, but T’Challa had other ideas. Barry has another life-altering experience that has left him with a bad taste in his mouth, and LaToya is a terrible best friend who now frequently sends calls from Barry to voicemail.
It’s been weeks since the last episode, a trend for what feels like an unending season. Barry and T’Challa blame LaToya and she takes the opportunity to express her recent struggles with her mental health. Plus, she has a new job and is getting her first mammogram. Barry talks about the recent loss of his mother and his interest in changing his name. T’Challa lurks in the background and tells us about where he’d like to live.
Yes, we’re still in Season 13, one that may apparently take all of 2021 to complete. With no show last week and LaToya being increasingly unavailable to record at the set time, it is a surprise that they’ve eked out an episode. Despite there being a great deal to discuss, you know, death and despair, the hosts opt on the side of it being a lighter show. Find out Barry, LaToya, and T’Challa’s favorite books and some of their thoughts on Disney+ and the Marvel Universe.
With bad weather looming and the hosts recording on a Sunday, LaToya naively thinks this will be a short show. Barry is jazzed up and ready to go, and T’Challa moodily brings up the rear. What’s happened since the last show? LaToya has a new addiction, Barry has teaching woes, and T’Challa, well, he’s just along for the ride.
It’s been 3 weeks since the last show. Barry blames it on what LaToya and her hubby were up to. T’Challa is non-enthusiastically back for an episode in which he finds out that he shares the same rare personality as his favorite person, LaToya. So what happened over the past three weeks? A lot of television-watching, yeh, that’s about it.
LaToya has slept for less than 3 hours and it shows as she rambles her way through the episode. It is of no consequence to Barry or T’Challa as they are mostly prepped and ready for the show. Who would have thought that there would be so much upcoming streaming content amid the pandemic? And say it isn’t so, AMC may be no more? Plus, Barry still owes LaToya a wall tree and he also can’t live with himself now that perfect attendance is out of reach for this school year.
