Harry & Meghan
The focus of episode eight is the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview with American-born Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, and her husband, Prince Harry. Perhaps you are familiar with it. No holds are barred, no punches pulled—Baker and Lawrence go deep in this conversation, exploring centuries of colonial hierarchies and racist societal structures that impact how we think, act, and yes, even drink (it's no accident they're sipping tea on this episode). This is a fearless no-F's-given broadcast and it makes for an incredible show.

Sex and the City
The focus of episode seven is the hit HBO romantic-comedy series Sex and the City based on Candace Bushnell's 1997 book. Why focus on a decades-old series? Several reasons! Quarantine streamers are rediscovering the series on the new streaming platform HBO Max, and there's much buzz about the soon-to-be-released reboot And Just Like That.

A Very Special Episode
On this week’s episode, hosts Tymika Lawrence and Ezra Baker drink a cup of Idido Natural from Black & White Coffee Roasters in Chapel Hill, NC. This show is dedicated to the concept of the Very Special Episode, “one my favorite TV vehicles,” says Lawrence. “It’s a way for writers to bring a serious, heavy topic into homes where maybe people aren’t dealing with it…they humanize it by connecting with characters you know and love.” Lawrence and Baker dive deep into a classic two-part episode of A Different World, "Honeymoon in LA". This particular episode—the premier of Season Six, aired on September 24th, 1992—starts after the “wedding episode” of ADW (“a classic moment of Black television” says Baker) and takes place during the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles.
