March 29, 2019 03:41 PM PDT
This week on the podcast I have my good friend Jez come on the podcast to help rundown so topics. It has been almost a month since the last podcast, so I decided to cram in as many topics as possible into one episode.
We begin by talking to Jez in a cold open about his adjustment from Atlanta to D.C. Then we go into LeBron and the bubbling narrative that is trying to give Kevin Durant the crown this year. (13:20) We keep sports going and transition into Rob Gronkowski retiring from the NFL and the mark he left on the game for fans like us (25:30)
We close the podcast with the college admissions scandal and some different aspects of snitching. Mainly because the key cooperator was black Yale soccer coach that tried to get $450,000 from a father.

This week on the podcast, Keith Nelson Jr. joins us once again to cover everything that has happened in the last couple weeks. We kick the pod off by discussing Jessie Smollett's shenanigans. (4:50) Going off the deep end wouldn't describe what he did. We try to navigate him from here. We follow up with some Oscar talk. (15:40) Not the deepest coverage since the Oscars and the Grammy are both just hard to swallow. We then get into the weeds with Tristan Thompson's recent mess up with the Kardashian clique member Jordyn Woods. (23:35) Seems like Tristan is having some difficulty zipping his feelings up. Jordyn came on Red Table Talk to discuss what happened with her and the Kardashians. Keith and I agree this might be a big look for Facebook Watch. (34:56) We end the podcast a discussion around Black Twitter's darling Solange and her Black Planet Takeover (37:40).NBA Post Trade Deadline Talk With J.R. Gamble of TSL (#DRDS S3E05)

With Travis Scott dominating the charts, we decided to take a moment to rank Auto Era Rap artists. The conversation quickly turned into a discussion on how to appreciate Autotune Era Rap and establishing a class of artists that clearly separate themselves from what is here from the trends.

June 16, 2017 12:23 PM PDT
This week Keith Nelson Jr. joins the pod to discuss the NBA Finals and Michael Vick's retirement.
The Goledn State Warriors are champions. So what's LeBron's next move? We move on quick. Kevin Love seems to already be traded. And somehow Paul George has made it on Cavs. The Warriors have shown their dominance doesn't seemed to be going away so there isn't much to mention after that.
Michael Vick is retiring with the Falcons and the franchise is too afraid to give him his moment opting to put him next to Roddy White. It's cowardly to say the least.
Thanks for listening!
