Episode #005: Normalizing Relations with Cuba
Yes, that's right! In this episode, Uzo and Alia tackle the ever-serious topic of normalizing relations with Cuba, as Uzo ponders whether a strawman is being propped up in this "debate." We do have some fun though, as Alia gets quizzed on her music knowledge, we talk Melissa Harris-Perry, and we discuss whether staying woke is worth the effort. Stay woke, y'all!

Episode #004: Should We Spank Our Children?
In this episode, Alia dives into the topic of whether or not to spank our kids. Also, we go on a tangent about this past Halloween's racial discussion at Yale, in which a professor wrote an email that many of the minority students protested. Two notes on that; (1) Uzo mistakenly referrs to the writer of the email as "he", when Ms. Erika Christakis is actually a she. He apologizes for that. And (2), you might want to read the email for yourself so that you know how wrong/right Alia and Uzo were when talking about this topic: http://bit.ly/1qvMCoS
