Ep 92: No Baes on the Gram?
2 hr 9 min
Money and Nikeeta are back this week talking rules around posting baes on social media. Money is annoyed that Sam J ruined one of her favorite pods, so her mental moment is a long but helpful one on how to tell if therapy is working. Nikeeta puts us up on Charlene Mitchell - the first Black woman to run for president of the US. We celebrate
Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha as QueerPOC of the week.

30. Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?
After perhaps the most important election of our lifetimes, the real work begins. On this episode, Kimberlé sits down with a brilliant group of political thinkers and leaders to analyze the 2020 election and the challenges that remain. The discussion includes insights as to how local organizers turned Georgia blue for the first time in a generation, what strategies progressives might employ to keep pressure on President-elect Biden, and why in 2020, President Trump appears to have made electoral inroads with every demographic but white men. The panelists also discuss Kamala Harris’ historic ascension to the nation's second highest office, despite facing unparalleled levels of misogynoir.

The Magic of Turkeys and Santa
In this episode we celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas together with a mix of old and new. Thanksgiving — that All-American holiday of festive foods married with historical debates — get a look through the lens of pandemic past. We explore the Thanksgiving of 1918 and how it was the same and how it was different. This conversation comes as a backdrop to modern-day calls to abolish Thanksgiving by The New York Times and The Atlantic. While we agree some liberties have been taken with the history of Thanksgiving we have to take a real-world look at what Puritans and Native Americans really have to do with the Thanksgiving we really celebrate. But highlighting this episode even more is the fact that Thanksgiving, as always, sets the Christmas stage and helps build the delicious anticipation we all get in Santa Claus. Our merry little Thanksgiving Gobble Contest has yielded some festive results that we shared include the laughter of my 5 year old grandson who grabbed the microphone to tell me a Christmas tale that happened in my home just last Christmas. Mind you, I’ve never heard this story before — and it is, as all Santa stories are — a legendary thing. And that led to the debut of our first edition of our reading of A Visit from St. Nicholas – the Merry Forums sponsored event we call the Twas the Night Before Christmas Read-a-thon. This is an activity we have talked about for years that we have finally made a reality. And it is a little production sure to produce a smile and loads of Christmas spirit. We also share some more new music. A new song from Robyn Scott titled I Saw Santa Last Night brings a party feel to this episode. *_Song Details:_* *Title: * I Saw Santa Last Night *Artist:* Robyn Scott *Writers:* Robyn Scott & Brian Dolph *Length:* 2:54 *BPM:* 100 *ISRC: * CA8ZW1900001 *_Social Media Links_* Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Robynscottsingscountry Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/country.singer.robyn.scott/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/RobynScottsings _*I Saw Santa Last Night – Links*:_ Spotify: http://bit.ly/RS_Santa_Spotify iTunes: http://bit.ly/RS_Santa_iTunes Apple Music: http://bit.ly/RS_Santa_AppleMusic Amazon: http://bit.ly/RS_Santa_Amazon Google Play: http://bit.ly/RS_Santa_GooglePlay YouTube:http://bit.ly/RS_Santa_GooglePlay
