The Fight To #ENDSARS featuring Osai Ojigho
While Americans are calling to defund the police in the United States, Nigerians are demanding an end to police corruption and violence through the global hashtag #ENDSARS. For nearly two weeks, protesters in the West African country have taken to the streets to fight for an end to the federal police force Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) after a video emerged of officers allegedly killing a man. Though the global attention to this issue is new, Amnesty International Country Director Osai Ojigho, our guest this episode, tells us that the call to end SARS has been going on for about five years. Elsewhere in the episode we discuss the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, the unimpeachable legacy of Lebron James after the Lakers championship run in the NBA bubble, the return of Supermarket Sweep, and much more.

You Got Me Cuffed Up featuring Charreah K. Jackson
It’s mask-on mask-off at the White House. The news surrounding COVID-19 in the White House shows no signs of slowing down. On this week’s episode of “And THAT’S That,” we discuss the latest updates on the coronavirus in chief spreading germs in the Oval Office and the historic vice presidential debate featuring Sen. Kamala Harris who let everyone know she’s not here for the lectures from that “fly” guy VP Mike Pence. But with no love lost on politics, the president is not the only one trying to get chose in 2020. Cuffing season is early this year as folks are trying to find pandemic partners to make it through the second wave together. We welcomed this week’s guest, career and dating coach Charreah K. Jackson. Jackson is the bestselling author of “Boss Bride: The Powerful Woman’s Playbook for Love & Success,” and talks to us about what might go down in the DMs when looking for a cuffing season boo, safe sex in a pandemic and how social distancing mixes with social networking for likes and love.

Lesson Learn'd featuring Jamaal Bowman
For our first episode, we knew we had to welcome a guest who could match our steez ― someone proudly, loudly and unquestionably Black, unbothered by his haters and with an uncommon amount of energy. We wanted someone whose spirit would help set the tone for the types of wide-ranging convos we’ll be having with y’all each week. Enter Jamaal Bowman from New York, a rising star of the Democratic Party, a former school principal and ― we should say ― a certified rhyme-spitter. Bowman, a first-time candidate for Congress and a progressive, rode a wide wave of multiracial support to defeat his opponent, 16-term incumbent Eliot Engel, to become the Democrats’ pick to represent New York’s 16th District. And he did it all in true style and slight flex. Bowman’s got that Baldwin-like fire inside him, and he chops it up with us to break down power, the pandemic and Raekwon’s classic album “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.” We also discuss the latest updates in the Breonna Taylor case, the presidential debate shitshow, Wendy verzuz Nene and how Hippolyta teaches us all how to truly support Black women. Check it! “And THAT’S That!” is produced and edited by Izzy Best, Nick Offenberg, Sara Patterson, and Becca DeGregorio.
