Plague, abandonment and Roy Cohn in Angels in America
Angels in America is about plague in the Reagan 80s but could it be possible that there are some daddy issues to dissect in a work about a people abandoned by God? Join Sarah, Alex and Emma as they talk Angels, Roy Cohn and Cohn protege young Donald Trump. We watched the Mike Nichols adaptation of Tony Kushner’s 1991 play about AIDS and homosexuality in the 1980s. Big, big dad themes. It follows the lives of two couples, one gay and one straight-ish. Louis and Prior are our gay couple, and Louis leaves Prior after he is diagnosed with AIDS. And it follows the lives of Joe and Harper Pitt, and Joe’s mom Hannah. They are Mormons having relocated to New York for Joe’s career, and Joe, it turns out, is closeted. Joe works at the law office of Roy Cohn, the McCarthyist lawyer and power broker—also closeted—and we see Cohn struggle through his diagnosis and reconciling his own mortality.   Our conversation focuses primarily on Louis, who leaves Prior in the face of his diagnosis, and Cohn, who we wanted to talk about because Donald Trump was, for a brief period anyway, a Cohn protege and really it seems like as character, morality and philosophy go, he made quite an impact on a young Trump. We will also mention Belize, a gay man who is friends with Louis and Prior, and comes to find himself in the often awkward position of being Roy Cohn’s nurse. He is played deliciously by Jeffrey Wright.

Phoebe, Ijeoma Olou, & Phil Robinson Are Doing Their Best
It's crunch time, boos! The 2020 election is coming up. Many of us are scared and stressed and I called on two of the smartest people I know to talk about the issues of the day. Yep, that's right! We have another super sized episode of Black Frasier! So make some popcorn and Lipton iced tea and dig in. First up! Phil and Phoebe break down what exactly he does as a local politician, his career in the non-profit space and, of course, they give each other a hard time because that's what siblings do. Next, Phoebe chats with Ijeoma about local politics in Seattle, defunding the police, and as per usual, she gives us some tools on how to show up more intentionally in our communities. Plus, both Phil and Ijeoma answer some top notch listener questions.  Ijeoma Oluo Details: Twitter/Instagram: @IjeomaOluo Preorder Ijeoma's upcoming book MEDIOCRE: THE DANGEROUS LEGACY OF WHITE MEN : https://bit.ly/3dDteAg State Rep Phil Robinson's Details: Instagram/Twitter: @robinsonforoh Website: https://bit.ly/3ofjdhJ   -- Black Owned Business: Melanin Haircare WEBSITE : https://bit.ly/2IMG9ob INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/2IGiBRD TWITTIER: https://bit.ly/3dE9wo1 FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3jdh9D1 PINTEREST: https://bit.ly/3jgpgi2 -- SUBSCRIBE to get the latest Black Frasier Episodes: YouTube: https://bit.ly/33yXkBX Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3a787Vd Spotify: https://spoti.fi/33FG1PA Google Podcasts: https://bit.ly/33B9Gt9 Stitcher: https://bit.ly/2F241SS iHeart: https://ihr.fm/3kkY8Ah Pandora: https://pdora.co/31z7Ru6 Deezer: https://bit.ly/3gFwpYN Connect with Phoebe Online at: Visit the Phoebe Robinson WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/3kxHrlo Like Phoebe Robinson FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3fCjnKg Follow @PhoebeRobinson on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/33DParN Follow Phoebe Robinson on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/3a5xVAT Follow Black Frasier on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/31pKiUC -- About Black Frasier: BLACK FRASIER.

Moving on. Since I’m known amongst friends to dole out solicited (and unsolicited) life advice, I wanna spend each week - with a celeb guest - helping y’all handle your probs. #OliviaPope #MoreLikeOliviaDope #MomJoke. ANYWAY, the world is a continuous dumpster fire and the goal of this poddie is to make you laugh, think, and feel hopeful for our future.
