And we know her name. 

In this episode, Major and Lise talk sending Offset and Cardi B on a vacation to anywhere but social media, and Lamar needs to count his blessings and close his mouth in Bold and the Baeless, Kanye and Kim welcome home baby Chicago and Serena's scary labor is too common among Black women in Baby News, Memphis gives ZBo a warm return and why does Jesus love the Patroits so much in Balls and All, the Dems gave folks a long week and the women are still marching in Politikin', Must See TV includes Monique and Tracee securing the bag differently and The SAG Awards gave us a new mantra, Happy Birthday to Auntie Mo and the original catwoman, and we preach a word on Boaz and Yo'az in Moisturize Your Opinions. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies are joined by writer, theologian, academic and public educator Candice Benbow (@candicebenbow) to talk her Lemonade Syllabus, the walk of a grief journey, her viral 4:43 work, the ethics of love, and whether she eats savory or sweet grits. 

An author and academic who keeps us connected to our Southern roots is the GRITS We Love. (@redclayscholar)

Time's Up For _________?

In this first episode of 2018, Major and Lise bring in the new year by discussing the Bold and the Baeless including Nikki and Nas ending the relationship that never was, and Drake is still out here for everybody, a questionable housewife is expecting and one more Kardashian pregnancy is confirmed, Nashville has a reason to be excited about football in Balls and All, Must-See TV includes Atlanta returning, a massive crossover in Shondaland, Grownish and Love (or something like it) and Hip-Hop (or whatever) in Miami, Family Feud and Finessee videos have us in our feelings, Blue Ivy's birthday wishes remind us how poor we are, and much more. 

For Let's Talk About It Sis, the ladies talk Time's Up, the show of solidarity for awards season, the challenge of imperfect allyship and why American doesn't deserve Oprah in 2020 or beyond. 

The year's ashy start burns Lise's biscuits, and Major says wait a minute Mr. Postman. A Tennessee woman who gives us hope and an Alabama woman who showed us what courage is are the GRITS We Love.
