And we ain't either. 

In this episode, Major and Lise talk securing baby bags, Warriors chucking 45 the deuces, Al Sharpton doing it for the grandma, Omarosa can save some letterhead, Keyshia Cole is coming to a messy small screen near you, Jada's loving drag of the 2Pac movie, God's best day, and more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies discuss whether you can forgive and forget in the age of the innanets and whether you should delete your past ashiness from the world wide web. 

Major's biscuits are burned by our babies' lost childhoods and men who think spaces need their voices. Lise remembers two women whose name we add to the work of justice. The ladies both give a Love Offering to Nashville's PacFest 2017. And a special tiger who is saving major governmental coin is the GRITS We Love.

And since we all came from a woman...

In this episode, Major and Lise honor the memory of the Pulse tragedy, talk pride in the Preds, karmic justice by Derek Fisher, and a retiring Dirty Bird in Balls and All, Malia and Yara bringing #BlackGirlMagic to the Ivy, Kamala is goals and Obama is memorialized in Politikin', mistreat Torey Lanez and he'll give you his coins, Ice Cube served chilly shade to Bill Maher, Black Love is coming to BET, a decade of this generation's greatest love song, and much more.

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies are joined by the founders of @tupacfestival, @bigfellatv and @waltlou, and talk the origins of the festival, why Music City USA is the perfect host and the complexity in appreciating Tupac Shakur. 

Lise gives a love offering to Bonnaroo (and some parts burned her biscuits), Major calls a friend who hijacked a wedding to the front of the congregation, the Geek Corner is a full Black Panther lovefest and a certain little zoologist gets shine, and the GRITS We Love is a woman with a need for speed.
