We're Still Here For Janet
58 min

This week, in light of Justin Timberlake’s upcoming Super Bowl performance, we revisit his infamous 2004 “wardrobe malfunction” halftime show with Janet Jackson. We dissect the public reaction to “nipplegate,” why Janet (and not Justin) took the fall, and how the controversy changed the course of both artists’ careers. We consider Justin’s new musical direction in the context his history of appropriating other cultures. And we offer Janet the forgiveness she deserves, realizing that her sexual experimentation led to some of our favorite moments in music history.

Evidentiary Bodies (Barbara Hammer at the Leslie-Lohman Museum)

“The Lunar Eclipse and Super Blue Moon Are Here. Watch it Before Work.” (Nicholas St. Fleur, The New York Times)

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.

Phoebe & Stephanie Beatriz Get Real About Family
It's the holidays, y'all, so that means eating lots of carbs, hopefully a niece pressie aka present or two, and of course, family. All families are unique with their own set of quirks, flaws, magic, and stress. Therefore, it only makes sense that during this holiday season, Phoebe talks about the family of it all. And she's thrilled to be joined in the studio with star of "Brooklyn Nine Nine," and the upcoming film "In The Heights" Stephanie Beatriz. She is so open, vulnerable, and funny. It's a wonderful and powerful conservation. Plus, as always, we answer some audience questions. Enjoy, you gois!!!

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.
