In My Feelings (Part 2)

Mr. Haberdashery and Dj StereOtype talk about how triggering white women are, how angering white aspiration is from POC's, and the brilliance of Azealia Banks's draggings and unapologetic willingness to read (and talent, of course). *Correction: Dominique Deveraux was the black character of the famed Dynasty series, played by the legend Diahann Carroll.

Ball of Confusion (Part 1)

The duo discuss how CRAZY the past few weeks have been in the media.

Mr. Haberdashery and Dj StereOtype discuss musical/artistic censorship from streaming platforms with reference to Spotify being done with R. Kelly and company.

He's Misstra Know It All (Part 1)

The duo discourse on the politics of romantic and sexual preference, if most queer POC spaces are calibrated for people to celebrate or sexually exploit each other, and clarify (or double down on) their personal opinions of pro-Black artists having white partners (à la last episode, "This Is America").

This Is America (Part 2): Changes

The beloved duo speaks specifically on Childish Gambino, Kanye West, Jordan Peele, and other prominent black artists who create art specific to the black experience while having white/non-black partners in their personal lives. As black artists who are open-minded to love from wherever it comes, how do they navigate the feeling of responsibility to manifest black love in their private lives, while remaining non-judgmental to others?


This Is America (Part 1)

Bitch Better Have My Money: I Don't Suck Strange Dick

ISSA CELEBRATION BITCHES! Join the gentlemen on a boozy podcast in celebration of Mr. Haberdashery's BIRTHDAY!!!

Oh, the celebration of our culture, and the disloyalty to our humanity! They also discuss the origins of their personal queerness, the agenda against bisexuality, the scam of heteronormativity, and...


Perfect Illusion (Part 2)

The guys discuss the repercussions of shame for queer POC. In this discourse, they unpack how Black, Christian, and Conservative values (passed down by White Supremacy) affects relationships, love, and the value that POC place on each other. Do we have to be open-minded in our approach to love in order to manifest it? If so, how do we own our space and accountability? They try to answer these questions by questioning whether POC communities need to be less tribal.


Perfect Illusion (Part 1)

Mr. Haberdashery and Dj StereOtype discuss and unpack "race play," interracial porn, dominance and submission, and the freedom (or lack there of) for Black men to explore having a "sub space". As usual, it gets racial, as they discourse on the healthy aspects "faux wokeness," the denial of Black desire, and the seeming obsession White America has with blackness. Are we collectively being delusional about who and what we are? Is it all just a perfect illusion?
