How Can We Shablam on Voter Suppression? with Stacey Abrams
43 min

Voting rights activist, author, lawyer, and politician Stacey Abrams joins Jonathan to discuss the history of voting rights in the United States, the current state of voter suppression, and how we can work towards fair voting and a robust civic engagement. Abrams served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017, and as minority leader from 2011 to 2017. In 2018, she became the first Black woman to run as a major-party gubernatorial nominee in the US. She is the founder of Fair Fight, an organization that works to ensure every American has a voice in our legal system, and Fair Count, which advocates for accuracy in the 2020 Census and greater participation in civic engagement. This June marked the release of her latest book, Our Time Is Now.

Phoebe and Tegan & Sara Share Sisterly Love
Listen, boo boos, your girl Phoebe is tired, so she’s cutting straight to the chase. One of the number one themes that y’all wanted on Black Frasier is Siblings, so that’s what we’re discussing today. Sibling relay-lays can be tricky. Magical. Soul shaking. Special. Wonderful. Difficult. The best and the worst. Who better to discuss all the ups and downs of siblinghood than iconic twin pop stars Tegan & Sara. It’s a really good episode with phenomenal audience questions. Get into it!

It is - SURPRISE! - an interview-advice hybrid show hosted by a black person (ahem, me: Pheebs!) who has never seen an episode of FRASIER despite having a white boyfriend. #WeAllContainMultitudes. 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.
