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.

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.

We're back, and the internet streets were popping. In this episode, Major tells us about another great HBCU experience, Lise's dream collab happened and racists tried to ruin it, Lil Wayne is on drugs, TI is right this time, Major wants her mannequins only in the store, SNL is Blacker than ever, Moonlight blessed us, and we talk why we voted and why maybe we shouldn't have. We also spotlight some special GRITS and a local Black-owned business gets a love offering. 

This week's two cents is What Was Your Worst First Date Experience?
