The Power of Yeah!!!

The 90's produced some of the best R&B groups. Jodeci, Dru Hill, Boyz II Men, H-Town, just to name a few. In this episode we're going to talk about the power of the “Yeah" in a song. The “Yeah” is when the singer says yeah in such a way that moves the listener into another dimension. They have become the legendary signature of songs. It either brings you to your knees or gets you out of your seat. Devonte and Stephanie engage in an all out debate on whether Jodeci or Sisqo had the best...

3/5/2018

In this episode we caught up with Steven Hawkins (not the physicist) and Jerel Jarmon to see how they have been since their absence. Naturally, having these two back in the studio brings a different level of energy to room. We also talk about the annual Houston Livestock and Rodeo, engage in a discussion about Monique and her quest to stay relevant, and of course, we are still high off of Black Panther!! This has to be one of our most fun episodes to date!

We are we going in 2018???

1/23/2018

The biggest discussion that has taken over news in this country (besides Trump) has been sexual misconduct. Over 50 high profile individuals have gone down from accusations, and movements like #MeToo and TimesUp are pushing for cultural reform. We also see certain situations (like what happened with Aziz Ansari) question how we date and interact with each other. Don't forget about that new sex doll!!

A Reflection on 2017 (Hold my Beer)

12/20/2017

2017 sucked for a lot of people. It's an interesting concept, considering that we collectively said that 2016 was the worse year to date. It is as if 2017 said, "Hold my Beer." Since this is our last episode for 2017, we figured we'd take a moment to reflect on the year. Of course, we discussed the events behind Roy Moore, Donald Trump, the many protests and the rise of "fake news." We also reflected on our experiences with Medulla Talk. We've had many challenges, but we have grown a lot...

Escapisms are a must!!

I attended a music festival last weekend as a means to meet new artists and reconnect with old friends. If you're a person who attends music festivals on a regular, you'll notice (or at least I have) that there is a ton of weed smoked at these events. #TreesBeBurnin. Now, I'm not a sticker for drugs. I don't care either way whether you smoke or not, but I did find it interesting how over abundant it was. Everybody was Lit!! So I pondered, like I normally do. I asked, "What is the meaning...

With the help of our special guest Stevens Orozco, host of Raw Politics on All Real Radio, we dive into the rabbit whole and into some of the most popular conspiracy theories out there.
