And have a stadium seat. 

In this episode, Major and Lise talk another mass shooting that hit close to home, Bold and the Baeless includes beard thirst traps, Love, Hip-Hop and Elopement, Tamar's last album, the Harris' push and pull, White Love Matters and more, the Kardashians don't have a Plan B, Carmelo is a warrior, a certain Vol can't have our tears, and Agent Orange targets the NFL in Balls and All, A Different World turns dirty thirty, ASATT turns 1, Badu has bars, Cardi deserves all the flowers, whether Bodak Yellow is the new Knuck If You Buck, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, a certain video of high school majorettes sparks a conversation about the intersections of feminism, sexism, and dance. 

More crackhouse references burn Lise's Biscuits, iconic catwalk slayers get a Love Offering, comic books deserve a special day in Geek Corner, and a young Georgia peach who stood up by getting down is the GRITS We Love.

But some of y'all ain't scored a point. 

In this episode, Major and Lise talk the tragic death of Kenneka Jenkins, Tyrese reverts back to the ashy-ness we know, Nasir and Nicki cute New Yorkness, Bow Wow's take on relationships and Kevin Hart being a target in the Bold and the Baeless, Alexis Jr., is adorable in Baby News, Kyrie is unbothered, Jemele is unbossed and Sloane is unbrought (but securing bags) in Balls and All, Must-See TV has us loving the Emmys (mostly...Sean Spicer excluded), more Virgo birthdays, Rihanna had the best week ever, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies breakdown a good formula for shooting your shot...and apparently you need to be a NASA scientist to get it right with them. 

A certain university president who doesn't know that the touch and feel of cotton was the fabric of enslaved lives burned Major's biscuits. An update on Hellboy and a special girl are in the Geek Corner. Last, a woman with wings is the GRITS We Love.

When keeping it real goes racist.

In this episode, Major and Lise talk our prayers for those affected by Hurricane Harvey, Bold and Baeless has us (see: Lise) heartbroken for a R&B Diva, Baby News celebrates a newborn with a grand slam and a couple who are "goals", Balls and All sees a Texan secure the coins for good, a rant on DACA is warranted, Queen Bey should be your fav (as well as other Virgos), Rihanna has the range, Babygirl collabs with MAC for a beat we not sure about, lettuce pray for the problematic saints, Cardi B and rape culture collide, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, it is storytime and the subject is gentrification, which hit home this week for Lise. 

A special lady creating resources in food deserts gets our Love Offering. Geek Corner sees a racially problematic casting decision be reversed, cosplay brought joy in the midst of the storm, and a TSU and Game of Thrones mashup is everything. Last, a bad and boujee engineer is the GRITS We Love.
