The Memeification of Domestic Violence with Beverly Gooden
Content Warning: This episode contains discussions about domestic violence/IPV. This week, author and advocate Beverly Gooden joins the show. Beverly is the creator of the hashtag #WhyIStayed, which highlighted the stories of domestic-violence survivors and her memoir, Surviving: Why We Stay & How We Leave Abusive Relationships. We brought Beverly on the show to shed light on the conversations around domestic violence happening in pop culture. From the new Mike Tyson biopic on Hulu to Megan thee Stallion’s ongoing battle with public opinion - we’ve been inundated with narratives that favor the alleged abuser. We thought it best to amplify the experience of those who are at the receiving end of that harm.

Between the tumultuous relationship between Lil Nas X and BET, Jerrod Carmichael's latest HBO special "Rothaniel," and Isaiah Rashad's leaked sex tape, Brittany and Eric are in conversation (again) with Tirhakah on how far hip-hop and comedy have ~really~ come when it comes to queerness.

Red Lip Theology with Candice Marie Benbow
This week, Brittany and Eric chat with theologian, writer, and author Candice Marie Benbow about her book, Red Lip Theology: For Church Girls Who've Considered Tithing to the Beauty Supply Store When Sunday Morning Isn't Enough. To say the book challenges every idea of religion that we’ve come to know as gospel is an understatement. Candice refers to God not as He but They/Them, she encourages the need for grace by telling her own story of being ‘the other women,’ and she makes the case that the Bible is a more overtly sexual text than we think. These ideas may come as a shock to most...but what's that old saying? If you scared, go to church!
