This is FUBU! 

In this episode, Major is joined by the fabulous @meghann_monroe to talk the tragedy in Charlottesville and Barcelona, a former child of destiny has a way of getting diamonds in the Bold and (the not so) Baeless, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton 2.0 are expecting, ESPN did a mock slave auction while the Blacks were away, a woman of Brewster Place is aging like fine wine, Brandy vying Keke's Crown of Draining, Kim continues her family tradition of showing that Black-adjacent means absolutely nothing, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, Meghann, who has more social media followers than small countries have citizens, schools us on differentiating yourself, using social media as a tool to do so, and why she's willing to give million dollar game for $Free.99. 

The St. Patricks are unlucky charms who burn Meghann's biscuits, Major's GRITS We Love is a feminist professor from the land of golden sunshine, while Meghann's brings us to tears (but also gets us together). Last, a panel of experts handing out jewels and dropping bars gets a Love Offering.

In this bonus episode, Major and Lise get to talk politics with Randall Woodfin, mayoral candidate for the city of Birmingham. We discuss topics like navigating this current political climate, appreciating the real work of past generations, the best hole in the wall in B'ham, which woman leader Randall would like to interview, the continued need for HBCUs, who has the best homecoming and the ways in which gun violence has us in a war for the souls of young people.

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.
