Girls, we run this mutha!

In this episode, Major and Lise are joined by Tiffany and Tasha of @femmefest615 to talk our prayers for Nashville's Wonder Woman, Bold and Baeless examines the white love we can't do without and Queen Serena warms our ovaries, Ray Lewis has the right to remain silent (and he should), a Titan remembers the Obamas, Dodgeball finally gets its due and other things in Balls and All, Politikin' reclaims time, fires folk from a job they never had and looks to make sure the feds are not watching, Obama Day should be a thing, the brilliance of Bebe Kids means We Gettin' Old, allyship is what's for breakfast, Boosie doesn't know what M O L E S T A T I O N mean, Rihanna is all the tings and more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk all things Femme Fest 2017 and why this festival for women by women is having a moment in Music City, USA. 

Biscuits are burned when Lise is "intrigued" by casting choices for a certain Egyptian Queen, and Major wants folk to stop throwing shade from ashy hands. A church community is a different world than where we come from and gets a Love Offering. A league of extraordinary women fueling Femme Fest are the GRITS We Love.

What's our late fee?

Major and Lise are back to apply a smooth layer to 2017. This week the ladies talk folks aiming to lose their jobs on New Year's Eve, Mariah Don't Care-y at all, Drake is for everybody, The King of Misogynoir came for our Asian baes, our stories on the silverscreens, and the Golden Globes were bad, boujee and very Black.

For Let's Talk About It Sis, it is so hard to say goodbye to the Obamas...and you can't make us! A inspirational teacher gets our love offering, and Lise is willing to wait for Atlanta to travel to a galaxy far, far away. Major spotlights an aspiring librarian and a Nashville native who we won't let be a Hidden Figure.

-12/17  Paychecks and Playchecks by @knowledgebanknashville at American Baptist College 

 

Dec 15, 2016

It's our year end review! Auld lang sigh! 

In this last episode for 2016, Major and Lise talk all the Kardashian drama, police shooting proposal, Queen Bey continuing to gather all the things, Blue out-divas her mom and the iconic Mariah, young Ms. Willow is slaying each and every scene, why we don't deserve Gucci Mane, Chance's playlist for bubble time, Obama news, and the diversity within the diversity of this year's Gloden Globes and NAACP Image nominations. For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies reflect on the buttered and ashy moments of 2016 and their hopes for 2017. Plus, y'all so cool in your shirts, Lise breaks down why the force should be with you, and a woman who taught us that purple was more than a color is the GRITS we love.

In this episode, Major and Lise talk Showtime at the Apollo making a fresh start with an old twist, somebody need to tell Soulja Boy, Evelyn is coming back to draining reality, Lemonade is Rolling Stone's pick, the Grammy nominations are out, and why road rage and murder are two different things. For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk the twitter storm that erupted around Tomi Lahren, Trevor Noah, and Charlamagne and the how the voices of women of color exist and can get amplified. Major has a love offering for heroes in East TN, and Lise's biscuits are burned by how we criminalize people for being poor. Plus, the GRITS we love has a special connection to a certain dog.

This week Major and Lise talk the Soul Train Awards, the death of Fidel Castro and its complications (for some), a lovely lady was lost, Gucci got a return on his investment and Keyshia needs a decoy, Xenophobia is the word of the year, and the Obama nephews are the cutest thing ever. For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk about whether home is really where the heart is. Major's biscuits are burned by y'all underestimating your granny's hands. Lise offers a love offering to a real queen. And woman-preneurs are the GRITS we love.

Nashville Happenings: 

- 12/2: Its The Set; Accepting donations of winter gloves, socks, and hats (Follow them on Instagram @itstheset for more details) 

Nov 23, 2016

We're being thankful and thoughtful. This week Major and Lise talk swag-surfing at the White House, Cardi B remains a national treasure, Lise is excited about Selena's story coming to the small screen, Black Panther just added Queen Angela to the fold, Drake is at peak light-skinnedness, and Obama making it rain medals and sentence commutations. For Let's Talk About It, Sis, we get real about this being the season of self-care and mental health awareness. Really good music gets our love offering, Lise sits at the intersection of comic book and band geekdom in this week's Geek Corner, and one special Memphian girl is hardly home but always repping as the GRITS We Love.

We got a right to be mad. In this episode, Major and Lise discuss the presidential election results, its aftermath, the new Kardashian Dream, Even Stevens got BARS, Joe Biden continuously proves to be a rider, Dave Chappelle was the cocoa butter for our soul, and Oprah is not beyond reproach. For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk sexual fluidity, bi-phobia and our adventures in sexual orientation. And a GRITS We Love gets proper respect since y'all put her over a trap beat.
