120. skumps!

Sterling and Kortney concur that the "12 times tables" are the worst of the multiplication tables. There's new designs in the indoob store (finally) and some upcoming cons and fests to wear said merchandise to, like Leaky Con! Later, we salute and celebrate Stephanie Williams who created the successful Kickstarter for her new comic "Living Heroes" with art by O'Neill Jones. (You can still contribute to the Kickstarter as they try to make it to $15k!) Where does "skumps" come from? What is it? Shouldn't we all be dreaming a little bigger, darling?

119. the BAMF awards

Sterling reviews the Oscars (and the Super Bowl halftime show despite already discussing it last episode but failed to mention Shakira, J Lo and Janet Jackson). Kortney gives an update on the status of her novel. Reviews for Sonic the Hedgehog and They Will Have Us followed by BHF: Claudette Colvin, Leontyne Price and Pam Echols & the Fair Housing Act of 1968 (see the story here). New designs are heading to a t-shirt or mug near you, head over to indoob.com/store and follow for updates.

Sterling attempts to spook Kortney about aliens but ends up talking about a documentary about an internet serial killer. As for happier topics, the question on what to do with birthday cards post-birthday, soft pants, Hamilton in theaters, Negro History Week, and The Good Place finale. Spoilers are between 51:10-1:02:30

(A review of the film Cats was teased, but will happen in a future episode)

115. 2019 review

In the first PodBean live stream and last episode of the year, Sterling and Kortney review the year 2019.

Kortney recounts her trip to DC visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Sterling discusses the first episode of HBO's Watchmen.

Vilissa (@VilissaThompson), Steph (@Steph_I_Will), LaBlaq (@LoveAndShalom) and Neysha (@La_Ney_sha) return to join Sterling and Kortney for Friendsgiving... and shenanigans. 

112. disney plus glitch

DISCLAIMER: As irony would have it, in discussing the glitch within Disney+, this recording is heavily glitching and we apologize. If you can't get through the whole episode, we understand. But we didn't want to *not* put out this episode.

Berto (@DryBertini) returns as we dive into Disney+ on launch day to discuss all that we loved and disliked about the new streaming service. There's some mention to serial killers at one point that will someday soon be heard in a Patreon exclusive to fully be understood.
